Preview: Who Tops The Battle of Forces?

Police FC will play host to fellow gunmen UPDF FC in a StarTimes Uganda Premier league encounter at Lugogo.

The two sides are separated by three points, with Police in fifth, and it promises to be a closely contested affair.

Police will be going for revenge having lost the reverse fixture 1-0 thanks to Ruben Kabuye strike.

Abdallah Mubiru has a full fit squad and will be spoilt for choice as his talisman Tonny Mawejje returns.

They had gone three games without a win previously but managed to bounce back, picking a vital victory away to Kyetume before slicing Calvary FC in Uganda Cup, a tie they won on a 10-1 aggregate scoreline.

UPDF FC overturned a first leg deficit to oust Arua Hill FC in Uganda Cup but face a stronger entity.

Coach Kefa Kisala will be targeting a positive result as they go on the road for the third straight league game!
