Police host Proline at Lugogo in their rescheduled fixture of in a do or die battle for relegation survival.

The match was supposed to be played in September but it was pushed due to Proline preparation to CAF Confederation campaign against AS Kigali of Rwanda which they eliminated to qualify to the second round before falling against Al-Nasr prior to group stages.

Proline will be in the hands of the Assistant coach Baker Mbowa due to absence of head coach Matia Lule who the club revealed that he has gone for a three weeks leave granted by the club over personal issues which even involve flying out of the country.


Mbowa is going to be assisted by Anthony Bagoole in the club’s remaining three games to the end of the first round before the decision over the situation is taken.

Mbowa who now holds the fate of the club in the top flight, was on the touchline when his side beat Maroons in their last game which was their second win in four matches after beating Bright Stars and drawing against BUL and Busoga.

Despite collecting Eight points in their last four games, Proline are still at the bottom of the table in 16th position with 8 points from 12 games.
