Kakindu stadium, Jinja 4pm
Reigning champions Express FC start life without Wasswa Bbosa with a trip to Busoga United.
The two sides clash at Kakindu with the hosts fighting for their life while the visitors want to stay in touch with the leading pack as they intend to defend their title.

Former Bbosa assistant James Odoch will be in charge and is aware of the threat the second from the bottom side poses for his charges.

“Tomorrow’s (Friday) game is going to be tough; my history tells me we’ve always had a tough time when playing away in the east,” he told the club website.

“Busoga is a good team despite their league position but according to the training we’ve done, the boys are in good shape and I believe we shall win the game”.

The visitors are without long term absentee Arthur Kiggundu at left-back but have everyone available for selection as they look to end a run of three games without maximum points.

Busoga United has won three of the previous 5 home meetings losing two.
Overall, the sides have met 11 times, Busoga United won 4. (L5, D1)
