Preview: Relegation Six-pointer

Its now or never as relegation battlers MYDA and Kyetume face off in a crucial league fixture at King George IV stadium in Tororo.

Ten points separate second-from-the-bottom MYDA with Kyetume and win for any side will improve her hopes of League status quest.

MYDA FC will have to win their home games if they are to mount challenge this season and they must do it now before waiting for their last games.

Kyetume on the other end, come into this one after a controversial away loss to Kitara. The aftermath has seen the club suspend goalkeeper Mutakubwa and defender Julius Ntambi with alleged match-fixing.

Against MYDA, the Slaughters will fancy their chances but will have to put aside internal club woes if they are to leave Tororo unscathed.

This season at the close of the first round, Amos Kirya scored the only goal at Njeru as MYDA beat Kyetume to register their first top flight victory in history.
