Preview: Arua Hill host Struggling Tooro United at Barifa.
Arua Hill SC will welcome wounded side Tooro United at the Barifa Stadium in Arua City on Sunday.
The Livingstone Mbabazi side come into this one after picking a vital win against Busoga United away from, thanks to Afred Leku’s lone strike.
Back at home, they host a side that has a poor start into the new season as they sit second from the bottom.
Mbabazi’s charges will bank on the fact that they beat the same side by 1-0 in a FUFA Big final held at Njeru this year, thanks to Rashid Kawawa’s lone strike.
On the other hand, Tooro United have been a shadow of themselves ever since they returned to the Uganda Premier league.
They have only collected four points, and lost six out of their opening eight games so far.
Heading to Arua, they come off a 4-2 loss to UPDF, a game that had four penalties awarded.
Sitted second from the bottom, Tooro United will have to be at their best if they are to pick any positive result in Arua.
And that looks far from sight given the financial struggles at the club. They have reached in Arua on Sunday morning after players had threatened to boycott to travel.
This will be the second competitive meeting between the two sides. The first one came in a FUFA Big final with Arua Hill winning it by 1-0.
