With the title out of their sight and 8 games to the climax of the season, URA FC will be looking for a respectable finish when they visit relegation fighting side UPDF.
URA come in this contest 9th placed on the AUPL table with 27 points while their opponents are 13th with 22 points and only 3 points separate them from the drop zone.
URA were held to a 1-1 stalemate away to Mbarara City in their previous fixture while UPDF played out to a goalless draw with Maroons in their last encounter at Bombo barracks grounds.
The first round meeting between the two sides saw the tax collectors edge UPDF 2-1 at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
URA has won only twice in the 11 games they have played away from home, losing 7 times and drawing twice.
Their hosts, UPDF FC have won 4 of the 11 games they have hosted so far this season. They have lost twice and drawn 5 times.
The army side will be without Sulaiman Majanjalo, while Isaa Mubiru is a major doubt through an ankle injury.
They will look at Mustafa Kasolo, Joseph Janjali and Owinyi Ronald for inspiration.
The revenue side will be without Richard Kasagga who survived a nasty road accident, while Mutyaba Julius and Kalama Deboss are also out injured. They will heavily rely on Charles Sempa and Shafik Kagimu to put a massive impact on the game.
A win for the hosts will see them move to 12th place on 25 points whereas victory for the visitors will propel them to 7th on the log leapfrogging BUL and Police who are currently 7th and 8th respectively.
