The Battle For Survival Continues
Soltilo Bright Stars, 12th on the log with 27 points, host 11th-placed Gaddafi FC-28, at Kavumba in the battle for survival.
Despite being 12th and 11th on the log, both sides are far from safety as they sit only three and four points respectively above relegation.
Hosts have just jumped out of relegation following a 1-0 win in Wakiso derby against Wakiso Giants in their last encounter.
The derby win marked their first back to back win of the season after defeating Tooro united earlier, taking the tally to four matches unbeaten now.
It’s a rare thing to find in any league fixture, but this is going to be their third straight league game played at home where they last lost three months ago with 3-0 against Express.
They will also be looking forward to defend against a double following a 1-0 defeat in the reverse fixture played in October at Jinja.
The Soldier Boyz on the other hand, are visiting Kavumba at the back of the poorest form in the league currently.
They are winless in their last eight games, ever since defeating Mbarara City on February 20.
To make matters worse, they have so far won only once away from home this season, and that was October last year when they beat Mbarara City 1-0.
So today afternoon, the Jinja based side will be looking forward to returning to winning ways, avoiding third straight loss and completing a double not forgetting a relief from relegation threat.
