Preview:

Onduparaka play host to Mbarara City FC in one of the five games in Uganda Premier League this Tuesday.

The Caterpillars have blown hot and cold this season but will need consistency if they are to occupy the top positions on the log.

They beat Bright Stars at Kavumba in their last game, thanks of Emmanuel Okech’s goal but the teenager will miss the game due school engagements.

The Visitors on the other hand, have been far from convincing this season especially against teams they are supposed to beat with ease.

They edged Vipers at Kakyeka in their last game and this will act as a motivation going to the Arua game.
