Ankole lions have enjoyed an impressive form during the first round of Startimes uganda premier league compared to last season where they finished the whole season battling in relagation zone save for the seven penalties they received along different matches that helped them avoid dropping down
During the first five months Mbarara city things are seemingly on up as they pretty sit in 3 position with 24 points . They have collected 19 points at home of those 21 points that they are supposed to get.They have won 6 games at home .
The sorry side of Livingston Mbabazi’s coached side is that they will miss the services of rejuvenated attacker Karim Ndugwa and Experienced shot stopper Ali Kimera,both of them are suspended after receiving redcard in a previous engagement against Onduparaka .
Kirinya Jinja SS will bank on their striker Joel Madondo who has scored 8 goals so far to get them goals ,however the school boys will miss defender Isaac Isinde who is doing trials at Malaysian side Universities Kebongsaan.
