Uganda Premier League
Wednesday, 28th April @4pm
-Express FC vs Onduparaka FC
-MYDA FC vs Vipers SC
-Wakiso Giants FC vs Police FC

The Uganda Premier League match-day 21 continues with three games on Wednesday.

At Wankulukuku, Express FC will be hoping to continue their chase for the title when they host Onduparaka FC.

The Red Eagles are also in search of their first-ever home win against Onduparaka.

They have struggled against the Caterpillars at Wankulukuku and are yet to register a victory off them ever since the Arua based side was promoted to the top tier in 2016.

Coming off a 1-0 victory at Vipers SC at Kitende, Express can not afford to lose any points especially after leaders URA FC beat Mbarara City FC 2-0 on Tuesday to move further up-top.

Before a kick of the ball, Express sit seven points off the pace and Bbosa is confident they can cut that deficit back to three with a rare victory against the Caterpillars.

Express are the only side yet to lose a game at home this season, winning five and drawing the other four of their nine games so far.

Coming off a 1-1 draw against Mbarara City in their last home game, Express will not be taking anything for granted against Onduparaka.

The Caterpillars have been struggling in the last few games, winning just one of their last seven games.

They are also currently on a four-game losing streak including a 1-0 home loss against KCCA FC this past Sunday.

Joseph Mutyaba’s side are steadily sliding down the table and currently sit in 11th on 24 points, just five away from the relegation zone.

They know they must start winning games so as to put reasonable distance between them and the dog-fight.

The first meeting between the two sides, this season, ended in a 1-1 draw.

In Tororo, Vipers will be attempting to bounce back from the loss to Express last time out.

The Venoms are now playing catch up as they sit four points adrift of leaders URA FC.

The game against MYDA gives them the right platform to return to winning ways if we are to go with the poor form of the hosts since joining top flight.

The reverse meeting saw Venoms humble MYDA 7-0 at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.

There will be no room for errors for Vipers and failure to squeeze out a win will mount more pressure on coach Fred Kajoba.

MYDA who are yet to win a game at home, will seek to capitalise on Vipers poor form to cause a big upset on Wednesday.

And a result against a defending champion will surely pour more life into an already lost battle to survive relegation.

With seven goals to his name, Ibrahim Nsimbe will carry MYDA FC’s scoring burden on the day.

At Wakishha, in-form Police FC travels away to poor Wakiso Giants FC.

The Purple Sharks will be aiming at brightening their survival hopes when they host the Cops at the Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium in Wakiso
Wakiso Giants will not have room for errors after Kyetume lost out to Kitara yesterday.

They are only a point above the relegation zone and a win against Police FC will see some pressure off them.

The sharks have only managed one win in their last four league fixtures losing their previous one against kyetume.

On the other hand Police FC come into the game with a upper hand after a 6-1 victory against MYDA FC in their previous league outing.

Forward Ben Ochen will be the man looked at to lift the cops again having netted four goals in the previous two fixtures.

Both teams played out a goalless draw in the reverse fixture at the Omondi stadium.
