Proline turn attention to league survival after their continental fairytale came to an end following a 2-0 home loss to Al-Nasr Benghazi.

The side, coached by Matia Lule, take a long trip to face hosts Tooro United on match-day 13 at St Paul Seminary grounds.

The Lugogo-based team has lost all their last four league games – Vipers, Wakiso Giants, Busoga United and Kyetume FC – and have only won twice this season against Onduparaka and Express.

However, they had their six points docked off by FUFA when they dishonoured their league fixture against SC Villa.

Consequently, the side is now languishing at the bottom of the log with zro points from eight games.

The bitter departure of target man Ivan Bogere has rubbed more salt in the ailing wounds while the club is going to miss the services of Bright Anukani who is representing Uganda Cranes in a regional tour game.

Tooro United will fancy their chances against a fellow struggling side.

Since the departure of head coach Wasswa Bbosa, the club is under the tutelage of assistant coach Eric Ndifuna.

The hosts will be seeking to bounce back after a humiliating 4-1 loss against SC Villa in their last engagement which was played at Bombo.

They will mainly bank on home support in Fort Portal which also did the magic when they overcame Mbarara City.

Tooro sit 12th on the log with 13 points from 12 – They have managed four wins and will settle for nothing but maximum points.

Yafeesi Mubiru who scored in thier last game, Paddy Muhumuza who was man of the match in their game against Mbarara and Godfrey Lwesibawa will be of the pillars on Saturday.

Both side met three months ago in FUFA pilsner Super Eight where Tooro won 1-0 to finish 7th.
