Three matches on as UPL resumes

Three matches will kick off Week 20 of the Ugandan Premier League on Friday 9th March, with relegation threatened Proline hosting Bul, as Masavu welcome Bright Stars at Fisheries Training Institute and Kirinya Jinja SS host UPDF in Bugembe.

After managing a draw in their last game, against bottom side Express, Proline will be playing in the red zone for the first time in the season and hope they can get a win to rise out of there again. It will not be easy though, as they have Sam Kintu and Mustafa Mujjuzi suspended.

Bul are tenth on the log with 22 points and hope they can get a win after going winless in the last three. Aziz Kemba, Charles Tibingana and Yusuf Mukisa will be facing their former team if called upon in this game.

At Fisheries, Masavu will be hoping for a win that would drive them out of the relegation zone when they host Bright Stars. Abraham Ndugwa, who recently got a national team call up, will be among the key players in this game but Arthur Ssemazi and James Kasibante will also be key men.

Meeting with UPDF

Bright Stars just got eliminated from the Uganda Cup and will be looking to recover here. Nelson Sekantuka will be their key man in this clash.

In Bugembe, Kirinya Jinja, who are fifth with 28 points, will be hoping to extend their fine run when they host UPDF, after picking three wins in their last five matches. Fred Amaku, who scored in the first leg meeting with UPDF will be a key focus again in this clash.

UPDF on the other hand, will hope to continue with their good run after picking four wins and a draw in the last five matches, which has seen them rise from the relegation region.

They may however miss key man Fahad Bardiro who is reportedly chasing a lucrative deal in Cameroon.

All matches kick off at 4pm.
