Preview: Struggling Caterpillars hosts Poor Tooro United
From their recent shock defeat to relegation zone dwellers Busoga united and losing away hard to points due to hooliganism, the host Onduparaka will have no excuse and choice but to win in order to redeem their season in the quest to put a stop on their average performance when they host another red drop occupant, struggling Tooro United on their match day 15 at AbaBet Green Light Stadium.
The hosts suffered Point deduction which saw them drop in red zone as of now following Bright Star’s one all draw against Express on Friday, and a win for them will be so much of a relief when they retain a two point gap breather from relegation as they re-occupy the 13th position.
The Caterpillars have gone seven matches without a win, their last win and only their second win of the season came in November last year after a 1-0 against police, since then they have lost and drawn many.
The visitors will be looking forward to put an end to a 12th match losing streak and probably to register their second win of the season since their only win which came in their season opener after a 1-0 against Mbarara city fc.
A win, which looks far from reach to the visitors, will not only be a Godly sent motivator and a confidence booster but will also be a life saver which can bring their hope of relegation survival to life in order to avoid what happened to them last season when they were relegated to big league.
Their last meeting came in January 2020 at st Paul Seminary grounds in fort portal where the caterpillar won 3-0 by Forfeiture after Tooro’s failure to field in the required number of players due to license issues and Tooro has only one win in the entire four long trips made to Arua.
