Hosts Mbarara City FC will be without Souleymane Bamba and Solomon Okwalinga when they face BUL FC in a league game at Kakyeka Stadium.
Okwalinga will be serving his suspension of accumulated yellow cards while Bamba is nursing an hamstring.
Hillary Mukundane and Ibrahim Orit will require a late fitness while Jasper Aheebwa who lost his dad and child returns from compassionate leave, the club has confirmed.
BUL won the reverse fixture 3-0 in the reverse fixture at Bugembe and the Ankole Lions will be hoping for a revenge.
Mbarara currently sit eighth on the log with 30 points, just three points behind sixth placed BUL, a position which denies them a chance to play in Pilsner Super 8.
Brian Ssenyondo’s team are coming into this one at the back of a motivating away point after a one all draw in their last game against stubborn Onduparaka in Arua.
For the visitors, they travel to Mbarara on Monday morning at the back of their first win of second round after beating Villa 2-1.
BUL who traveled with its full squad, sit sixth on the log with 33 points from 23 games and a win for them will pile pressure on rivals and neighbors Busoga United who occupy 5th place.
New coach Arthur Kyesimira will bank and build on Joseph Ssemuju who netted in a brace in their first win of second round.
Since the 3-0 win courtesy of Musa Esenu’s hat-trick against Mbarara, BUL FC have managed one win and three draws in the 10 league games played.
