Maroons will be looking for their first win in six games when the Uganda Premier League returns on Tuesday after a three week break.

Asaph Mwebaze’s side pride themselves with the second longest unbeaten run this season that reads nine games, but only three victories have been managed the last of which came on October 31. Six successive draws have been recorded and this has pushed the side down closer to the relegation zone.

It’s a worrying slide for the Prisons side, and they’ll certainly be desperate for three points on Tuesday when bottom side UPDF presents opposition. Given UPDF’s abysmal run, Maroons should be able to see off the side, but Mwebaze’s team has struggled to get things done at home, with only one victory managed this term.

The army side will undoubtedly welcome a point as it will halt a run of three successive defeats. A draw will be seen as a great result although it will do nothing in terms of the position in the league as UPDF are rooted to the bottom of the table with only six points, five adrift of Masavu who sit just above them.

There are still a couple of games to the end of the first round, but UPDF appear a side that is already headed down. The Bombo side has lost the most number of games [9] this campaign and are the second worst defending team in the league, with 21 goals conceded thus far.
