Fourth placed Soana will attempt to continue with their fine form when they welcome Jinja side, Sadolin Paints to Kavumba Recreational Ground on Tuesday 1st, November.
The Sam Ssimbwa coached side came out victors in their last league encounter on Friday to keep the pace setters in touching distance, while Sadolin Paints played to a barren stalemate with Vipers on the same afternoon.
Soana enter Tuesday’s match five points behind league leaders KCCA – who will face a hard task extending their lead at the top as they will be up against a fellow title contender SC Villa at the Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo – well knowing that another positive result would further increase suggestions that they could actually push for the title.
Frank Kalanda’s return to scoring has been a timely boost for Soana with the former URA netting his fourth goal of the season on Friday against Proline to ensure Ssimbwa’s side collected all the points and remained in the top five positions fancied by the coach.
Soana have lost just once in the league, winning five while drawing as many. There have been quite a number of impressive performers at the club but hails will rightly go to Allan Kayiwa and Kalanda. Both were in fine mood on Friday as Soana recorded a 2-1 win over Proline to ensure they keep within the top positions.
While Soana will fancy their chances of collecting all the three points on Tuesday, Sadolin Paints will enter the match off the back of positive results. The side that started the league terribly has not lost a game since losing 1-0 to Bright Stars last month on match day five. Two victories against URA and JMC, and three draws against Lweza, Proline and Vipers have since followed.
One man the hosts’ defence must keep an eye on on Tuesday is forward Norman Ojik. Prior to their meeting with Vipers on Friday, the forward had netted two successive times. He also scored the winning goal against URA in added minutes to earn his side their first victory of the season last month.
Sadolin occupy the eleventh position in the league with 11 points.
