Relegation-threatened Sadolin Paints and The Saints face off in a “must-win” clash in the Uganda Premier League at Mandela National stadium, Namboole.

The two sides are languishing in the relegation zone with Sadolin second from bottom with 26 points from as many games played while The Saints are a position and point above from the same number of fixtures played.

The Painters are currently undergoing a slump in form no win in their last five fixtures despite reaching the semi-finals of the Uganda Cup but neither are the visitors in fine form although they have won at least a game in the last five league games.

A loss for either will leave their chances of staying up blink which makes the tie more of a Cup final.

The hosts will rely on the experience of midfielder Peter Katumba, Norman Ojik, Basami Saaf and Nasser Muzamiru while The Saints have hope in Rogers Aloro, Ivan Kiweewa and centre forward, Godfrey Wakaza.

Maximum points for either will lift them out of the red zone and can move as far 10th on the log.
