*Preview: UPDF Host Maroons In Battle Of Forces

The Army side UPDF will be looking forward to return to winning ways when they host the Prison Warders in a league game in Bombo.

The hosts are winless in their last five games since their only win of the season which was a 3-2 against Busoga United.

They have lost four in a row and have since dropped in 13th position with only five points from eight games.

However hosting a side which is yet to win away from home hands them confidence and Brian Ssenyondo will be fancying his side’s chance to return to winning ways.

Maroons on the other hand, have lost their last two games since beating KCCA at the end of last month which was their second win of the season.

On the road this season, they have only managed a draw in three outings.

They started the season strongly and occupied the top places just after three games, but a recent 3-1 defeat in Luzira to struggling Blacks Power in their last game has seen the side drop to 10th with just eight points.

This is going to be the third league meeting between the two sides and the first one in five years.

Head to Head.
Maroons 1-1 UPDF
UPDF 0-0 Maroons
