As many as four teams are still fighting for the life in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League with the countdown starting on Tuesday.

UPDF, Busoga United, Blacks Power and Onduparaka are all still within a chance of survival.

On Tuesday, the quartet is in action desperate for maximum points to have at least another campaign in the top tier of Ugandan football.

Bottom of the table Onduparaka make a tough trip to Luzira where on form Maroons are lurking.

The Caterpillars who are on 16 points must win to stand any chance of survival as defeat will automatically send them to the Fufa Big League with two matches remaining to play.

At the Akii Bua stad in Lira, Blacks Power host Gaddafi hoping to win and keep pressure on both Busoga United and UPDF who are above them.

With 20 points and twelve to play for, Hussein Mbalangu’s men still believe they can stay in the division for longer than just one campaign.

Busoga United who are just four points above Blacks Power have a tough game away to Arua Hill while UPDF, six points better off the red zone host title chasing SC Villa at Bombo.
