The automatic promotion place in the Elgon group of the FUFA Big league is up for grabs as leaders Arua Hill visit second placed Gaddafi FC at Kyabazinga stadium Bugembe.

Gaddafi will only target victory if they are to make their chances of direct promotion clear.

They currently trail Arua Hill by 3 points with the West Nile side boasting of a very superior goal difference of 14 compared to Gaddafi’s meager 6.

Arua Hill may seal their place in next season’s Uganda Premier league if they manage to avoid defeat with a game to spare.

The first leg meeting between the two sides ended in a high scoring 2-2 draw when Gaddafi fought from behind on two occasions to steal a point from Arua.

In their previous league outings, Gaddafi whitewashed Paidha Black Angels 6-2 whereas Arua Hill beat Calvary 2-0.

The Hussein Mbalangu coached side will miss experienced midfielder Gaddafi Gadinho who is suspended for tie after accumulating 3 bookings.

Forward Allan Mugalu has also recovered from a groin injury and he is available for selection.

Gaddafi will look up to Ronald Obere, James Otim, Ronald Bithum and Pascal Ngoobi for inspiration.
