Maroons has managed to collect 12 points from the eight games played away from home drawing six times and winning twice.
Charles Ssempa, Shafik Kagimu and Nicholas Kagaba will lead Paul Nkata’s side in search for a second consecutive win at home.
URA FC will miss out the services of Fred Okot and Godfrey Ssembatya due to suspension leaving out the rest of the players fit for selection.
Solomon Walusimbi, Pius Obuya, Eddie Kapampa and Ashadu Bugembe will be the men to watch as Maroons FC hunts for a first ever win over the tax collectors.
A win can propel the tax collectors from 8th to 6th position.
A win can not move Asaph Mwebaze’s side to further positions but will close the gap as Kirinya Jinja SS is in the 5th position with 37 points.
