Tooro United and Arua Hill host SC Villa and BUL respectively on Wednesday with either seeking to maximise home advantage.

Ibrahim Kiirya and Nestroy Kizito are in the dugout for the Tooro United side and will want to put one against their former bosses who sacked them at the end of last season.

SC Villa coach Petros Koukouras expects a very tough encounter despite winning the reverse fixture comfortably.

“We know in the second round, they will try to save their season and stay in the UPL,” stated Koukouras who guided the Jogoos to a 4-0 victory in the reverse fixture.

“Despite the 4-0 win in the first round, it was a tough game and we shouldn’t be carried away.

“They also have a few of our former players who will try to prove a point. In order to win the game, we have to do what we haven’t done in the previous games and that is utilizing chances we create in front of goal.”

The sixteen time champions, 11th on the log with 17 points will miss the services of Meddie Kibirige, Oscar Mawa, Kenneth Semakula, Travis Mutyaba and Abdallah Salim.

At Barifa stadium, Arua Hill will target revenge over BUL who harassed them with a 4-0 defeat at Bugembe.

The two sides are separated by a single point with BUL 4th on 29 points while Arua Hill are on 28 points in 6th place.
