The Azam Premier League enters match day 13 today with all the clubs in action before the called-up players depart for the forthcoming CECAFA tournament.
With 12 games played by each club, SC Villa lead the table with 25 points, two points above second placed Police FC. Express dropped in the relegation zone with 11 points tied with Masavu FC while UPDF are at the bottom with only 6 points.
SC Villa take the fine form to struggling Masavu FC after edging fierce rivals Express 1-0 at Masaka Recreational Grounds last Friday.
The Jogoos travel to Fisheries Training Institute, Bugonga in Entebbe looking for a fifth straight win to keep the momentum at the top of the table.
Villa will rely on forwards Alex Kitaata and George Senkaaba to keep their goal scoring form to get the maximum points.
Defending champions KCCA travel to Mbarara as they look to bounce back from their 2-1 home defeat to Proline. Daniel Isiagi’s scored a brace while Mucureezi scored a consolation from the penalty spot late in the game.
Proline became only the second Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) team on Friday to beat KCCA at StarTimes Stadium since the facility was refurbished a couple of years ago.
Proline will entertain Bright Stars at the StarTimes Stadium.
Vipers will seek to continue their form when they host rivals URA FC at St. Mary’s stadium.
Milton Karisa scored a goal in either half as Vipers won only their second match in the last eight attempts as they beat Kirinya-Jinja 2-0 at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on Friday to regain the team’s confidence.
Both Jorge Da Costa and Ibrahim Kirya are currently under pressure following a slow start campaign and the outcome of the game is likely to leave one’s job hanging by the thread.
Vipers will be without Nicolas Wadada who misses out due to suspension while their number one goalkeeper Ismael Watenga is still out with an injury.
Elsewhere, Express manager Shafik Bisaso visits his former employers, Soana seeking his first win after losing his first two games in charge.
Kirinya host Maroons in Jinja while Onduparaka host bottom side UPDF in Arua.
