Preview: Battle of League Strugglers

Tooro United and Police face off at Buhinga Stadium in Fort Portal as the two poor starters meet in hope for resuscitation.

Two points separate Tooro United on 4 points from Police in a bottom of the table clash.

The hosts will be banking on home advantage to pick their second win of the season after a poor run of results.

They showed admirable resilience for extended stretches against Vipers before Caesar Manzoki broke the deadlock to hand Tooro United another loss.

And with coach Edward Kaziba back, Tooro United will fancy their chances this time round against a fellow struggling side.

Police on the other hand, finally got off the mark with a deserved win over Busoga United and the visitors will be hoping to build on that result.

It remains to be seen whether Police have turned the corner after 10 games without a win.

Charles Musiige and John Byamukama were on scoresheet as Tooro United beat Police the last time they met at Buhinga in 2019/20 season and Steven Omvia also handed Tooro United a 1-0 win at the same venue against the same team a season before.
