Sadolin Paints host relegation threatened Kirinya-Jinja SSS on Sunday at their new home ground Nambole Stadium, looking to get back to winning ways.
The Painters resumed the Uganda Premier League second round on the wrong note after they lost 2-0 to Police last Tuesday, leaving their head coach Peter Kirumira disappointed after what he called an ‘unconvincing’ performance by his side.
That defeat was their fifth of the season and their second in a row having lost to Onduparaka prior the league break in December.
Kirumira and his charges will be keen to get their first win of the year when their neighbors come to town tomorrow.
Looking to ease off the pressure by securing their first win of the campaign will be the league debutants Kirinya-Jinja SSS.
The side has failed to register a victory in the top flight, leaving them on the brink of relegation. Scoring goals still rates as their number one challenge. With only five scored — the newcomers have scored the fewest goals in the league.
Fans will hope their new recruits can bring smiles to their faces.
The last time the two sides met, the game ended in a barren stalemate. Visitors Kirinya-Jinja SSS come into Sunday’s game on the back of a one-all draw with Soana.
They have not been good travelers, with all their six defeats coming away from home so a draw at Nambole will be considered a fair result.
The two sides are separated by four places and seven points, with Kirinya sitting 15th on the table with ten points.
