URA who sit 4th on the log will be hosting a struggling Prisons as the aim at a 3rd straight win in the second round.

Maroons sit a distant 13th with only 15 points garnered from the 17 games they have played this season and are yet to win a game in the second round.

With 6 points collected from both games played so far in the second round of the season, URA appear to be a rejuvenated side having won against traditional giants SC Villa at Namboole and against Ndejje away in Bombo.

Maroons have won once, drawn twice and lost twice in their last five games.

Sam Simbwa the URA head coach will be serving his last match- ban punishment and assistant Georgewilliam Lutalo will handle the revenue collector’s side.

URA will miss the services of midfielder Siraje Ssentamu who is nursing a groin injury and exciting youngster Joachim Ojera who is out with fever.

Goalkeeper James Alitho has also been declared fully fit.

Maximum points for the Namboole based side will help them raise to 31 points but will remain in the 4th position with a point below 3rd placed Mbarara city while a win for the Luzira based side will see them leapfrog SC Villa to the 12th position with 18 points.
