Team News

  • UPDF will welcome back Joseph Bright Vuni who missed the 1-0 victory against SC Villa
  • Striker Dickens Okwir is available for selection after serving his red card suspension vs Vipers SC.
  • For URA, coach Sam Ssimbwa has named the same match-day squad that beat Busoga United
  • Michael Birungi, Ivan Sserubiri, Jackson Nunda and Hassan Kalega remain sidelined.

Probable Lineups

UPDF FC – Yusuf Wasswa, Sharif Batte, Isa Mubiru, Denis Ssekitoleko, Simon Mbazira, Sam Kintu, Brian Kalumba, Ibrahim Wamannah, Brian Kayanja, Charles Ssebutinde, Ruben Kabuye

URA FC – Alionzi Nafian, Mandela Ashraf, Majwega Brian, Nyakoojo Benjamin, Mbowa Patrick, Ivan Ntege, Sseruyidde Moses, Shafik Kagimu, Ojera Joackiam, Ibrahim Dada, Cromwell Rwothomio.

Preview – Will URA Tax The Army Side?

Three points separate URA FC (21) in third and fifth placed UPDF going into Match-day 11 at Bombo Military Barracks ground.

These are the tricky games Sam Ssimbwa has to win if he is to challenge for the league title this season.

His side has blown hot and cold this season, and needed a Moses Sseruyidde goal to overcome Kitara FC in Kavumba.

The gaffer is expected to name the same lineup as they seek to bargain for the top place on the table.

The hosts on the other hand, beat their tenant SC Villa 1-0 thanks to veteran Ezekiel Katende strike.

That victory, is second in a row after they beat Mbarara City at the same ground, to end their poor run that had seen the side lose three straight since the league returned from the break.

Kefa Kisala faces selection headache, especially up front where the battle for places remain very tight but even with the return of Dickens Okwir, the striking partnership of Brian Kayanja and Brian Kalumba may be fancied.
