• Maroons FC vs Busoga United
• Friday 21st February
• Luzira Prisons Ground
Maroons will hope to put to an end on their winless run in the league when they welcome Busoga United at Luzira.
The Prisons Warders have lost three of their last four league games and sit only two points above the drop zone.
Busoga United are on the back of a comprehensive 3-0 win over URA despite playing the better part of the game with a man-less.
Busoga United are fifth with 33 points and will hope to attain a respectable finish as we head to the final bend of the season.
Maroons coach Douglas Bamweyana is under fire following a string of unconvincing results that have dragged the Luzira side into the relegation talk with only eight games to play.
Both sides played out a one-all draw when they met in the first round in Jinja.
Busoga head coach Abbey Bogere Kikomeko predicts a tough game for his side but hopes for the best result.
” It’s not going to be an easy game for us because we are playing against a side that’s not performing well currently. Maroons are a side that almost plays the same kind of football we play but we are going for another win.” Bogere Kikomeko says.
” Steven Mukwala is one of the best strikers in the country but we have a special strategy to keep him out of the game just like we did against URA in the previous game.” He adds.
Mukwala has scored 13 goals so far, more than any player in the league and will be one of the players to look up to for the Bamweyana charges.
The visiting side will rely on the in-form midfield maestro David Bagoole and striker Lawrence Tezikya who scored against URA on Tuesday.
Defender Douglas Muganga is the only Busoga United player ruled out the game because he was sent off against the Tax Collectors while Abubaker Otwao returns from injury.
Maroons goalkeeper Hannington Ssebwalunyo was sent off for unsporting conduct against Wakiso Giants in their last game.
Ssebwalunyo stamped Viane Ssekajugo soon after conceding the match winner in their 2-1 defeat.
