Express host Tooro United at Kavumba in a relegation six pointer as either sides fight for survival before the season ends.

It’s one of the four games on the Wednesday menu and will see Express new head coach Wasswa Bbosa face his immediate former side.

Bbosa left Tooro United after one and half season last November citing unfavourable working conditions at the club before he was named Express new coach early this month.

Bbosa and Express come into this fixture after securing a hard drilled 1-0 win over Onduparaka in Arua in their most recent league game.

Unlike their opponents Tooro United, Express were eliminated from the Uganda Cup last week courtesy of a penalty shoot out against Maroons.

Tooro United seem to have rediscovered their form having won four of their last six games in all competitions.

Tooro United defeated Wakiso Giants 2-1 in Fort Portal in their last league game thanks to Yafesi Mubiru’s brace.

Yafesi Mubiru is Tooro United’s leading scorer this term with six goals and would fancy stretching his tally when he faces his former pay masters. He played for Express between 2015-17.

Express will look up to Frank Kalanda, Disan Galiwango, Eric Kenzo Kambale, Frank Ssenyondo, Baker Lukooya among others in a quest for their eighth win of the season.

Galiwango single handedly won all three points for Express when both sides met in the first round, scoring a second half brace to cancel Willy Kavuma’s early goal.

Express are 12th on the table with 24 points and can go 10th in case they complete a double over Tooro United.

Tooro United will remain second bottom on the UPL irrespective of any result. They are on 19 points, three behind Police and four better than Proline.

The previous 13 meetings between Tooro United and Express have seen the Red Eagles win on seven occasions, drawing thrice while Tooro have won four times.

Express’ Lawrence Kigonya Pantaleo begins to serve his suspension while Hamdan Nsubuga and Cyrus Kibande return from injuries.

Muhammad Kisekka the Tooro coach will look up to new boys Ronald Orombi, Eddy Kapampa, Nicholas Kagaba and James Kasibante in search for a positive result.
