*Proline Vs Kyetume

Express FC will be hoping to bounce back after a painful loss against rivals SC Villa, when they play host to Mbarara City at Kavumba.

Emmanuel Wasswa scored the lone goal for Villa as Express FC succumbed to their 10th loss this season. The Red Eagles now sit 12th on the table with 21 points, two places and as many points above the relegation zone.

A loss, may see Express finish the day in the red zone!

Pressure continues to mount for George Ssimwogerere and the board is set to withdraw their trust in the former club captain.

Sim will be without Cyrus Kibande, Hamdan Nsubuga and Joshua Ssentambule but Enock Ssebagala and Desmond Kaneene are set to be included on match day squad.

Isaac Doka Mweru is expected to pave way for Sserukwaya in the midfield. Lawrence Kigonya and Daniel Shabena are also expected to start in the middle of the park.

For Mbarara, the side will welcome back Jude Ssemugabi and Bamba Souleymane who had an ailing tooth and accumulated yellows respectively.

Left back Jasper Aheebwa who lost his dad and son in the space of two days, and Stephen Otieno, have been left out of the match-day squad.
