Mbarara City will go all out to bury their poor form at home when they host Kyetume FC at Kakyeka Stadium in one of the six games on Saturday in the Uganda Premier League.

The Ankole Lions are under the stewardship of coach Sadiq Ssempigi after the club suspended coach Brian Ssenyondo who is with the Uganda Cubs.

The hosts are yet to win at home and will fancy their chances against a side that is yet to find solace on the road.

Mbarara will have to put up a better show at home after falling 2-0 at UPDF thanks to second half goals from Brian Kalumba and Kayanja.

Kyetume on the other hand, have gone four games without a win but will be targeting at least a point on the road.

They needed to twice come from down in their 2-2 draw at home to Bright Stars, the kind of resilience they will need on Saturday.
