TENSION (The struggle to beat the drop)

One certainty in any Azam Uganda Premier league season is that the three bottom placed clubs will be relegated to the Big League. Any team struggling to reach at least the 35 point mark that supposedly ensures safety ( Proline have done) faces a tense final few games that are destined to end in tears for their supporters, players and management, With the replacements already confirmed after Mbarara city joined Maroons and Masavu on Sunday 7th, May 2017, its inevitable that some 3 teams have to create room for them.

With JMC Hippos already having confirmed relegation, SWIFT SPORTS analysts have managed to put all the teams that are liable for possible relegation on the scale.

A 2-0 win against Sadolin Paints last week should act as a stepping stone for The Saints in a bid to stay in the top flight league. They climbed from the 14th to the 10th position clinching the 30 points mark, leapfrogging Bul, Police, Lweza and Kirinya JSS.
The Bombo based side is under Cranes assistant coach Moses Basena who is expected to play a vital role in the last decisive matches.
They host Soana on on Tuesday before making two tough trips to Arua and Kitende to face Onduparaka and Vipers respectively. Onduparaka are yet to lose a game at home while Vipers are yet to concede at the St Mary’s in the league.

Strikers Julius Malingumu and Godfrey Wakaza, Skipper Dennis Sekitoleko, overlapping left back Isaa Mubiru, Patrick Gonahasa, Aggrey Kirya, Katende Ezekiel and goalkeeper Alex Mugabi will be looked at for performance. A win and a couple of draws can guarantee them 90% safety.
