Police seek to commence life without Hood Kaweesa with a win when they visit Mbarara City at Namboole.
The Ankole Lions picked victory over the Cops in the reverse fixture and the game presents a chance to avenge the painful defeat in the first round.
Besides Basani Saafi, the 2005 league champions have no injury worries after the return of Paul Willa.
Abdallah Mubiru’s side are fifth on the log with 24 points while Mbarara City, coached by former URA and SC Villa tactician Ibrahim Kirya are 9th with 19 points.
Owen Kasule and AbdulKarim Kasule will be key for the visitors in central midfield against the likes of Shakur Makeera and Rahmat Senfuka.
At Lugogo, Kirinya Jinja SS begin life minus goalkeeper Tom Ikara with a visit to Proline.
Already without him, they lost their Uganda Cup round of 64 tie to Regional side Seeta United but target maximum points against a side that beat them at Bugembe.
Proline also starts life without striker Fahad Bayo who moved to Zambia.
Elsewhere, Masavu hosts fellow relegation candidates UPDF at Fisheries Ground, Bugonga.
