BIG LEAGUE: Wakiso Giants out to clinch automatic promotion as Proline face Plascon hurdle

SINAN RAJUB SENOGA

Wakiso Giants could become the first team to win promotion to the Uganda Premier league this season should they overcome Entebbe FC at Bugembe on Thursday evening.

Wakiso Giants lead the Elgon group table with 37 points, five better than second placed Kyetume with two games to play.

The Purple Sharks will have to negotiate the fixture without goalkeeper Yasin Mugabi, midfielder Yasin Mugume and suspended Karim Ndugwa.

Their opponents Entebbe are fighting for survival on the negative end of the table and will be confirmed relegated should they lose to the Ibrahim Kirya’s coached team.

Entebbe coached by James Odoch will be without the suspended duo of Emmanuel Shadrack and Bruhan Matovu while former Express midfielder Sharif Ochaya is ruled out by injury.

Elsewhere, Kyetume host Nebbi Central at Nakisunga while Doves All Stars make a trip to Bukedea Town Council.

Former Premier League side UPDF FC seek to consolidate their third place at the expense of Doves All Stars when they take on Light SS at Bombo.

In the Rwenzori group encounters on the card, table leaders Proline face off with second placed Kansai Plascon at Lugogo.

Only a point separates the two sides – Proline (38 points) and Kansai Plascon (37 points).

Kiboga Young make a trip to Masindi to take on fellow debutants Dove FC in a “third versus fourth” affair.

Only goal difference separates Kiboga from Dove FC who played out a disappointing 2-2 draw against the already relegated 10-man Bumate United last week.

Ntinda host Kitara at Wankulukuku while relegated entities Kira United and Bumate face off in a dead rubber at Namboole.

Kireka United will hope to keep their survival hopes alive when they entertain Kabale Sharp at Namboole on Friday.
