Uganda Premier League (Match Day 19):

Tuesday, 12th February 2019

Maroons Vs Ndejje University

Prisons Stadium, Luzira (4:30 PM)

Uganda Prisons service funded football club Maroons FC entertains debutants Ndejje University in a Uganda Premier League match day 19 contest this Tuesday at the lake side Prisons stadium in Luzira.

Coming to this very game, Maroons is currently 13th on the 16 team log having collected 18 points (same as Sports Club Villa).

The league new comers, Ndejje University, on the other hand, have struggled to make an impact since their promotion to the top flight, winning just twice, drawing four times and recording 12 losses in the 18 matches played as they have fetched 10 points, sitting second from bottom.

The Tuesday game therefore is of equal value to either sides if they are to avoid the drop zone (relegation).

Robert Ssekyweyama, head coach at Maroons (after replacing George ‘Best’ Nsiimbe) is well aware of the mountain task ahead of him but with the believe that after winning 1-0 over URA at Namboole Stadium, they can pick similar results home or away.

Maroons will most likely maintain Emmanuel Akol in goal after that start performance against URA.

Winger Brian Majwega, Samson Mutyaba, Brian Majwega, Maxwell Okello, Emmanuel Olinga, Felix Okot, Ronald Orombi, Solomon Walusimbi, Seif Batte, Herman Wasswa Nteza, Yubu Bogere and January signing Isaac Otto are all expected to be part of the match day squad.

Raymond Timothy Komakech, the head coach at Ndejje University boosts of Vipers’ on-loan goalkeeper Eric Kibowa, defenders Issa Mubiru, Edward Kabona and skipper Ronald Odokonyero, Noel Nasasira, Robert Eseru, Francis Onekalit, Anwar Ntege, Emmanuel Wasswa and others for inspiration.

Ndejje University has never won away from home, their only two victories in the league coming at their Arena of Visions fortress in Luweero, against Mbarara City and Paidha Black Angels.
