Preview: Unbeaten Express Welcome Inconsistent Maroons

Express FC will be eager to secure maximum points as they host Maroons in an upcoming league match at Wankulukuku.

Currently holding a game in hand against SC Villa, Express remains the sole undefeated team this season.

Their recent game, a goalless draw against Wakiso Giants, marked their return to league action after their matches were suspended by FUFA due to fans hooliganism.

Sitting fifth in the standings with 12 points from 6 games, Express has a solid defensive record, having conceded only two goals, none at their home ground, Wankulukuku.

Their only two home fixtures resulted in a goalless draw against Mbarara City and a 1-0 victory over Bright Stars.

Contrarily, Maroons head to Wankulukuku following a 1-0 home defeat against NEC. This unexpected loss came after their earlier notable victory against then league leaders Kitara, handing them their first loss of the season.

Despite the setback at home, Maroons have shown prowess on the road, securing three wins out of their four away games, except for the 3-0 defeat against BUL.

Last season at Wankulukuku, Express win this fixture 2-0 thanks to goals from Boban Zirintusa and Allan Kayiwa who have since left the club.
