Onduparaka welcome Peter Onen’s BUL FC at the Greenlight stadium in Arua in one of the four StarTimes Uganda Premier League games of Saturday.
The West Nile club is targeting to bounce back after successive defeats against Tooro United (1-0 at home) and Police (2-1 at Lugogo).
They face a buoyant BUL FC side which is fresh from winning the Jinja derby against Kirinya Jinja SS courtesy of Richard Wandyaka.
BUL FC are fifth on the log with 42 points and aim for the fourth spot currently occupied by Mbarara City with a point more.
Onduparaka, 8th on the table with 37 points are on verge of losing three consecutive league games for the first time since gaining topflight promotion in 2016.
The previous five league meetings between the two sides have seen either side register one win and three draws.
The first round encounter ended 1-0 in BUL’s favour at the Technical Center in Njeru.
The home side will be without captain Rashid Toha and Gadaffi Wahab who are battling their way from injury.
Peter Onen already named a 20-man squad for the assignment in Arua.
Hannington Sebwalunyo, Paul Mujanpwani, Richard Matovu, Hakim Magombe, Musa Malunda, Walangalira Musa, Abdul Mayanja, Jimmy Kulaba, Willis Otong, Jamaldin Buchochera, Fadir Marijan, Pierre Muhindo, Richard Wandyaka, Douglas Owori, Daniel Shabena, Yunus Sibira, Charles Sebutinde, Vincent Pimundu, James Otim
