Proline vs Lweza – Lugogo, 4:00pm

Three days after earning their first win since returning to top flight, Proline will look to make it two in two when they host Lweza at the Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo on Saturday, October 1st.

Neither Proline nor Lweza have had much to shout about with regards to their premier league campaigns as both have had patchy starts.

Prior to Tuesday’s triumph, Mujib Kasule’s side had not seen victory and had lost once while drawing five times in their opening games.

Proline earned their first win of the season in form of a 2-1 victory over bottom side JMC on Tuesday to end their frustrating start, with Daniel Isiagi Opolot and Edrisa Lubega registering their names on the score sheet for the first time this season hence scrapping the burden off midfielder Gift Ali who has been bailing out the side.

Goals have been hard to come by, but with their danger man Lubega- last season’s top scorer in the Big league with 19 goals- finally opening his premier league account, fans will have plenty a reason to cheer and positivity is expected to flood the Proline camp.

Proline are without two first team defenders Savio Kabugo and Yusuf Mukisa who are serving suspension having both accumulated cards, but Kasule is confident their replacements will be up to the task containing Lweza’s attack.

“We have three contenders including two young defenders, Ibrahim Sendi and Mustapha Mujuzi who I believe are quality players,” said Kasule

Since shutting out Police at Kavumba Recreational ground early this month, Proline who started the league as a somewhat defensively decent side have conceded in each of their last four games. Kasule is aware of his side’s defensive problems, but says, “Our game is basically to attack which sometimes benefits the opposition, but the plan now is to outscore our opponents.”

Picking up a win on Saturday is most welcome with the international break just around the corner and with one of the title chasers Vipers, the side’s next opponent after the break.

Lweza who parted company with recently appointed coach Paddy Kintu have had a spotty start, and travel to Lugogo looking for just their third win of the season, and unlike their Saturday opponents, lost their last game.

While both Lweza and Proline have eight points in the league, the former has lost thrice, with the most recent loss coming on Tuesday against Vipers at Wankulukuku stadium. They had gone into that game with high spirits having beaten JMC prior, but Vipers as expected, proved a hard nut to crack.

They are one place above Proline who are eleventh on goal difference coming into this game.
