BUL will hope to quickly react to derby defeat to Gaddafi in their last game when they host Mbarara City as the first round of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League climaxes.

The table leaders are unbeaten in six home games so far and will hope the trend continues with maximum points against the desperate Ankole Lions.

A victory will ensure a five-point gap at the summit with half way the season.

At Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, Wakiso, KCCA take on hosts Wakiso Giants who are languishing in the red zone after their worst season in the top tier.

On form Kasasiro target a fifth win on the trot while the Purple Sharks want to end a two-match losing streak.

It will be a battle between teacher (Abdallah Mubiru) and his student (John Luyinda) in the dugout.

The two spent over a decade working together at KCCA, Vipers and Police with Mubiru the head and Luyinda the assistant.

Like KCCA, on form Express FC also want to maintain the run as they lock horns with Gaddafi at Wankulukuku.

The Red Eagles have won their last three games under new manager Alex Isabirye while the Jinja army side are coming off a decent win against table leaders BUL.

In the other game on Saturday, rock bottom Arua Hill visit NEC at Lugogo in a fixture that pits them against a coach (Hussein Mbalangu) that earned them promotion to the top tier two seasons ago.
