Onduparaka piped Maroons 2-1 away at the Green Light Stadium, Arua and Tooro United edged Police 1-0 at the Buhinga Stadium.

The much awaited derby match between KCCA and Sports Club Villa ended 4-2 in favour of KCCA at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

We failed to concentrate in front of goal. In fact, we created more chances than the opponents. We need 7 wins out of the remaining 8 games to survive relegation.
