Soana Fc will welcome UPDF at Kavumba recreation on match day 9 of the Azam Uganda premier league.
Last season both sides won at their respective home venues with Soana winning 3-1 at Kavumba and UPDF won 2-0 in the return fixture at Bombo.
Soana comes into tomorrow’s contest after winning 1-0 away to stubborn side Kirinya Jinja SS thanks to a Allan Kayiwa strike, whereas UPDF lost 1-0 to leaders Police at home courtesy of Hood Kaweesa goal.
The home side has no injury concerns ahead of the encounter while the army side will be without suspended Denis Ssekitoleko due to accumulation of cards but the rest of the squad members are available for selection.
Soana will bank on Allan Kayiwa who was impressive away to Kirinya Jinja SS Fc and custodian Joel Mutakubwa, while Julius Malingumu is expected to lift up the army side.
David Katono Mutono is unbeaten in the three league games he has managed since taking helms at Soana, a win at Kirinya, a goalless draw with Mbarara City and drew 1-1 at Vipers Sc.
