Weatherhead will open game week 9 in the National Hockey League against Badgers on Sunday looking to tighten the grip at the top of the table.
Weatherhead currently top the table standings with 19 points, but they can not afford to falter as Wananchi posses the same number of points. Steven Jjuuko’s side only lead by a better goal difference, and they will not mind if things remain that way at the end of this round of play.
They take on Badgers who will feel confident having drawn 2-2 against KHC Originals last weekend, but Weatherhead will feel they have enough firepower to dislodge their opponents.
Thomas Opio, Collins Batusa, Moses Tushabe and Maxwell Mugisha are Weatherhead’s main sources of goals, and as such will be expected to have their names on the score-sheet.
The former three each scored twice last Saturday as Jjuuko’s men hammered Thunders 6-1.
Weatherhead title rivals Wananchi will cap this game week against City Lions. It promises to be another tough encounter for the defending champions who had to dig deep to beat Rockets 2-1 last Sunday.
They face Lions who forced a 1-1 draw against KHC last weekend.
The other game week 9 games include KHC Originals against Makerere Stingers and Thunders vs Rockets, both games on Saturday.
On Sunday, bottom placed Weatherhead Titans will face KHC. All games will be played at the Hockey grounds in Lugogo.
