Fresh from earning a respectable result against South Africa’s Orlando Pirates in the CAF Confederations Cup, URA FC host Simba at Lugazi in the Uganda Premier League.

The Tax Men who sit 6th on the log with just 28 points from 18 games welcome back striker Robert Ssentongo and defender Jonathan Mugabi who sat out the goalless draw with Lweza FC in the previous game.

For Simba and Moses Basena, the game presents an opportunity to win consecutive games for the first time in the campaign after surprising Bul. FC with a 1-0 defeat last week.

The two sides settled for a 2-2 draw in the first leg with Erukana Nkugwa netting a double for the visitors while Alex Witaba and Alex Kasujja Onyango scored for the army side who current sit 12th on the 16 team table with 21 points.

At Buikwe, log leaders Vipers will be out not only to extend lead but also their unbeaten run in the season.

The 2010 league champions are chasing a record 19 fixtures without losing as they intend to inflict more pain on struggling Soana FC.

Edward Golola’s side who he claims is yet to get into the rhythm of how he wants them to gel has won all their three opening fixtures in the second round with the latest coming against Lweza thanks to Farouk Miya double.

The U-23 skipper will again be the man expected to lead the hunt for goals for the side with Benson Ociti who also netted a brace in the 3-2 win over Entebbe FC the man to inspire the visitors who still struggle for survival in 15th position with 20 points.

Elsewhere, Police host Bright Stars at Kavumba Recreation Ground with either side heading into the tie on the back impressive 1-1 draws against SC Villa and KCC respectively.

Likewise, either side seek a return to winning ways after failing in their last two attempts
