Thursday fixtures – 4pm

  • URA vs Maroons – Mehta Grounds, Lugazi
  • Busoga United vs Gaddafi – Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru
  • Vipers vs Bright Stars – St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende 7pm

URA and Maroons will be eager to return to winning ways when they face off at Lugazi on Thursday.

The tax collectors suffered a 1-0 defeat in their last outing at Wakiso Giants while Maroons are winless since resumption of the second round and drew goalless with BUL in their last game.

The two sides are separated by three points with Maroons 6th on 30 points while URA are 8th with 27 points.

The reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 draw at Luzira with dramatic late goals.

At Fufa Technical Centre, Njeru, Busoga United host local rivals Gaddafi in a Jinja derby.

Both are fighting relegation with the hosts occupying the last slot of the red zone on 15 points after 17 games and the visitors are two points above and just one position better.

A win for either will go a long way in helping ease relegation fears and defeat will do otherwise.

Busoga United edged the reverse fixture 1-0 at the Gaddafi Arena.

Elsewhere, champions Vipers host Soltilo Bright Stars under the lights at Kitende.
