Preview: Brian Ssenyondo Faces Former Pay Masters

Brian Senyondo will face his former team as his side UPDF host the Ankole Lions at the Bombo Military Barracks Ground.

Ssenyondo is still revered by the Ankole Lions fans and management alike having been in Mbarara for two spells.

His last spell however ended in disarray after the tactician opted for National duty (Uganda Kobs) and he was then relieved of his club duties.

He has got off to a good start at UPDF, picking four points in the opening two games. A point away in Onduparaka and home win against defending champions Express.

For the visitors, it has been a mixed start after they lost to Tooro United in a game that came at the back of a 3-1 sweet win over Bright Stars.

Both sides will be eyeing for going maximum points but the hosts will fancy their chances at home.

Brian Kalumba and Brian Kayanja were on target for UPDF the last time these two met at the Bombo Military Barracks Ground as the Army side ran away 2-0 winners.
