Police need to beat URA in the Uganda Premier League on Tuesday and pray Bul, Lweza and Kirinya-Jinja SSS lose their respective games to go to within three points of safety.

The Cops, eleventh in the league standings, are separated by two points from the red line but victory over Ibrahim Kirya’s men and defeats to their relegation rivals on the day will see them need only three points to secure safety with a game spare.

They come into tomorrow’s game off the back of a morale boosting 2-2 draw with second placed SC Villa, but their last home engagement ended in a frustrating 0-0 draw with struggling Bright Stars.

With only three games left of place and with 30 points to their name, six points are between Abdallah Mubiru’s charges and safety. They are aware their fate lies in their own hands, and will be keen to overcome their opponents on Tuesday.

It will not be an easy job though, with URA -winless in four- providing opposition at Namboole. The tax collectors are desperate to return to winning ways and will not be ready to aid Police in their relegation fight.

In the reverse fixture, it ended all square, a result that URA would take if it happened on Tuesday, but for the hosts, that will not be the result they will be looking at.

URA are placed fourth in the league with 42 points.
