Six teams will be in action on Sunday as the second round of the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) continues with three matches on the day.

A win for the 16-time league winners will see them close the gap on KCCA who are not action on the day.
Second placed SC Villa will move to same points, 35 if they win while JMC Hippos, bottom of the table will remain in the same place regardless of the result on the day as they have 5 points.
At Namboole, Sadolin Paints host struggling Jinja SS in the Jinja derby with both looking to win to brighten their chances of staying up.
The Painters started the second round with a disappointing 2-0 loss to Police and the game against Kirinya, the bluntest side in the division presents a good chance for Kirumira’s side to collect all points.
Elsewhere, Lweza, 10th on the log host 8th placed Bright Stars at Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku.
The two side failed to win on match day 16 with Lweza losing 2-0 to Vipers whilst Bright Stars earned a point against SC Villa.
