The Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) resumes on Tuesday with Onduparaka desperate to banish their last outing and URA keen to taste life after Coach Kefa Kisala.

Four matches are lined up with Onduparaka facing in-form Police, Kirinya Jinja SS hosting the Saints, deflated Vipers entertaining JMC Hippos and URA travelling to Lweza.

URA travel to Wankulukuku just a day after relieving their hitherto coach Kefa Kisala of his duties.

Kisala was sacked on Monday after winning just four league matches out of 18, a run that has URA in seventh with just 24 points, 14 behind leaders KCCA.

“The league results in the current campaign have placed the club league status under risk and the board feels that a change of leadership, while admittedly painful, is necessary in the club’s greatest interest,” said URA CEO Edward Kulubya in a statement.

Ironically, URA – who are yet to win a game this year- face a Lweza side currently coached by Ibrahim Kirya, a man Kulubya confirmed will replace Kisala.

Lweza, currently 12th with 20 points, come into this fixture equally desperate for points if they are to avoid a late relegation skirmish.

Onduparaka are the other side who want to forget their previous result as quickly as possible.

The Caterpillars come into their fixture against Police on the back of a 7-0 hiding at the hands of champions KCCA on Saturday.

Yet they come up against a resilient Police side, who have won all their matches this year under Coach Abdallah Mubiru.

Onduparaka remain third on 29 points while Police are ninth on 23.

Vipers will also be desperate to get to winning ways after firing blanks in a drab goalless draw with Express at Wankulukuku on Friday.

Coach Richard Wasswa’s men, fourth and a point behind Onduparaka, entertain bottom-placed JMC Hippos aware that nothing is guaranteed.

Elsewhere, Kirinya Jinja SS will play at home to The Saints as they target maximum points to enhance their chances of survival which look very slim.
