Wounded Maroons Football Club visit Kataka Football Club at Mbale Municipal Stadium as matchday six of the FUFA Big League kicks off.
The Prison Warders have lost their last two games 2-1 and 1-0 to Calvary (away) and Mbale Heroes at home.
Kataka managed to secure a 1-0 victory from Blacks Power at Emokori grounds in Bukedea.
Charles Ayiekoh, the Maroons head coach, is optimistic his team will bounce back to the rails.
“We have a very big task facing a side that has not lost any game at home with young players who play attacking football but all in all we shall overcome I believe.”
“All we need is to win this game to come back to normal, good enough we are not far away, teams are neck to neck.” He added
Ayiekoh will still miss Emmanuel Olinga, Samuel Omara, Solomon Walusimbi, Abraham Tusubira, Junior Amanya, Caesar Olega, Nelson Mandela due to injuries but welcome back Musa Ssali.
Puis Obuya, Fred Amaku, Ronald Orombi, Eddie Kapampa and Belmos Opio are the players expected to inspire the visiting team to bounce back to winning ways.
Kataka lie second on the Elgon Group table with nine points two behind table leaders Arua Hill SC, maximum points can temporarily take them on top of the table.
The Prison Warders are fourth with seven points and they will move to the second position if they win.
