Army side UPDF FC hosts Express tomorrow 23rd September at Bombo Barracks grounds. Both teams come in tomorrow’s encounter looking for the first win in the season.
Express will be looking for their first goal of the season and they come in this match at the back of losing to newly promoted Mbarara City. Express will look upon in form goalkeeper Buule Godwin and midfielder Steven Luswata for inspiration.
The hosts UPDF come in this game after drawing in their last game with the defending champions KCCA FC. They will rely on the experience of talisman Godfrey Wakaza and experienced defender Derrick Walulya.
The previous 4 meetings between these sides have produced 10 goals with Express having the lion share of victories after beating UPDF on 2 occasions, drawing once and UPDF winning once. The most memorable being a 1-1 draw at Wankuluku last season when the team was still under the name of Simba Saints.
UPDF have one injury concern with striker Julius Malingumu still sidelined. However, Mustapha Kasolo, Jeremiah Sebuyira and Fahad Bandiro will hope to make debuts after joining in towards the closure of the transfer window.
