Giants KCCA, Vipers aim to finish first round with a flourish

The first round of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League climaxes with seven matches – four on Tuesday and three on Wednesday with giants KCCA and Vipers fighting for top spot.

At Kavumba, the Kasasiro visit wounded Soltilo Bright Stars aware that a win will keep them at the top at least until the second round begins in February.

With 29 points, Morley Byekwaso’s men are two better than the Venoms who also play away to Busoga United at Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru.

However, if KCCA falter at Kavumba and Vipers win at Njeru, they will swap positions at the top.

On the fringes is Wakiso Giants and BUL who are on 24 points each going into the final matches of the first round.

The Purple Sharks host Arua Hill at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, Wakiso on Tuesday before BUL takes on Maroons at Njeru the following day.

Both Wakiso Giants and Arua Hill won their last outings which comes in handy as big motivations.

Besides, the visitors who won both encounters last season have a few faces in Gadafi Wahab, Geriga Atendele and Ibrahim Faizul as well as Coach Livingstone Mbabazi who face their former paymasters.

Elsewhere on Tuesday, draw specialists URA visit Gaddafi at Kakindu.

The first round will officially come to end on Wednesday when limping Express host newcomers Blacks Power at Wankulukuku, BUL host Maroons and Onduparaka at home to army side UPDF.
