KCCA’s Denis Okot in action against URA FC last season

Former champions URA and KCCA seek to keep early pace setters Vipers in sight when they face off at Namboole on Wednesday afternoon.

The big fixture is one of the five lined up on the day with hosts URA coming into the game on the back of two winless games while KCCA want to build on the comfortable victory over Onduparaka.

KCCA manager Mike Mutebi expects a tough outing against a side that has won 6 against 4 in the previous 14 league meetings.

“Player by player, there is no difference between both sets of players,” said Mutebi. “We expect a good game but tough one but as usual, the target is to pick three points,” he added.

His counterpart Ibrahim Kirya has highlighted the importance of the game revealing that a win for his side will send a signal to everyone that they can compete for the title this season.

“The two games we have failed to win gives more importance to this game,” he told upl.co.ug. “It’s a tough one against arguably the best team on the land but we can match them,” he added.

At Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku, two winless sides in Express and Maroons face off targeting first season victory.

The hosts sit bottom of the log with a point after three games whilst Maroons have a point more and are a place above.

SC Villa’s Henry Katongole will be key against Mbarara City

In Masaka, 16-time league champions SC Villa target a return to winning ways with a tie against league new entrants Mbarara City.

The Jogoos have lost and drawn their past two games and faltering against Vialli Bainomugisha’s charges will raise concerns over the team’s capacity to compete this season.

Mbarara City are yet to lose a game this campaign and have a point more than SC Villa who have amassed four.

Elsewhere, Police face arguably their biggest test of the campaign so far with a mouthwatering tie away to Onduparaka at the intimidating Betway Green Light Stadium.

The Cops have been impressive so far and a rare defeat for Onduparaka in Arua will see them reclaim top spot from new log leaders Vipers.

In the other game on the day, Bul, another of the three sides yet to pick maximum points host Moses Basena’s UPDF at Kakindu.
