The hosts on the other hand are on a four match winning run and haven’t lost a point at home this term.

The reverse fixture this season ended in a 1-1 stalemate at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium in Wakiso. Viane Sekajugo scored a second half equaliser to cancel out Muhammad Shaban’s first half goal.

Surprisingly, the two scorers will not feature in this edition with Sekajugo serving his final match of a 4 game ban slapped on him for verbally assaulting match officials. Mohammad Shaban is serving a club ban resulting from indiscipline.
