BUL FC  Vs CRO FC – Kakindu Stadium, Jinja

The rest of the games on the menu will go on scheduled.

Other games:

Bul –Bidco Vs CRO – Kakindu Stadium, Jinja

Jinja side, Bul Bidco, fresh from upsetting Vipers football club (2-1) will host the league’s whipping boys,  CRO at the Kakindu Stadium.

With an assured home crowd that cheers for the entire match duration, Bul will target maximizing on the goal difference as team skipper, Patrick ‘Crespo’ will hope to build account on  his already 10 goals in the bag.

Left dribbling ace, Aziz Kemba and his counterpart at the right, Martin Kivumbi will supply the balls as Peter Katumba perfects the spoilers’ role in the middle of the pack.

Players like Kato Hussein, who have had limited appearances season long are expected to have a run in as the game progresses.

Vipers Vs Simba – Kitende Sports Grounds

Beaten 1 -2 at Kakindu, Vipers faces army side, whose last outing was a win against the Abu Kigeny coached Masaka L.C at the recreation stadium in the country side town of Masaka.

Seldom does Vipers choke on home turf, an indicator that the fixture will be breathe taking one because Simba requires the maximum points too for a respectable position in the league.

Masaka L.C Vs Police:

In Ronald Lukungu, Masaka L.C has an inspirational and explemary figure that commands and takes responsibilities once his other 10 charges backfire.

Relegation candidates, Masaka Local Council will surely look to avoid a home loss, which will of course be the second since the start of the second round.

Mahad Kawesa, score against Simba is expected to continue his impressive showing at the poverty struck side.

Angelo Lonyesi will look to left back, Rogers Kalyango, Andrew Basooma and the towering forwards Umaru Kasumba and Benson Ociti for magic that will bring down the stars at Nakivubo.

Bright Stars Vs Soana – Nakivubo Stadium

Home side, Bright Stars, coached by one of the finest passers of the ball in the country, Livingstone Mbabazi, love to pass, pass and pass the ball often times, delaying if not forgetting for that crucial killing punch – shaking the goal nets.

Against SC Villa last Friday, the Kawempe based side was well assured of that 12thplayer in the stands – the women fans, who gained entrance free of charge. The team struggles to score even though the buildup is excellent but in Anthony Bongole (scorer against Villa) and the tricky towering Hassan Kikoyo, they have a perfect match up upfront that would make any local side coach envious.

At the backline, skipper Benard Muwanga will have to be at his best to approach the bully style of the striking duo of Peter ‘Crouch’ Ssenyonjo, Francis Olaki and the pacy winger, Dan Wagaluka.

Entebbe F.C Vs SC Villa – Wankulukuku

This is dubbed the ‘battle of the wounded lions’. Since the start of the second round, neither team has managed to bag the maximum 3 league points.

Crafty left back Sunday Mukiibi, the Entebbe F.C skipper, one of the oldest members on the team will be tasked to make marauding runs typical of the contemporary full back to assist his young brothers, Abram Ndugwa and Bajja Lorenzo as the veteran forward; Yusuf Kinene awaits that wonderful delivery up front.

Matia Lule, visibly missing on the bench as his team played against URA last Friday is most likely to return to the side and name a formidable line up though he will still miss the services of the combative midfielder, Nyanzi (red carded against Bul Bidco during that 1 all draw at Lugogo).

If Matia Lule’s absence on the Entebbe F.C technique bench continues, trainer cum assistant coach, Alex ‘Mabanga’ Gitta will take over the ruins of the club that are sure relegation candidates unless a super miracle equated to the biblical ‘manna’ gravitating from Heaven befalls.

His counterpart at SC Villa, Steven Bogere is most likely to welcome back midfielder, Arthur ‘Asha’ Mukisa (missed 1 -1 draw action with Bright Stars) as he maintains skipper Ayub Kisaliita in the backline and the attacking option of the duo left winger, Ronald Muganga and the Burly Nigerian, Emmanuel Emanayo.

A happy Viewing of which ever match you will catch. Keep on Kawowo sports for updates on facebook and twitter as the games get underway.
