Kampala Hockey Club (W) will go top of the table in the National Hockey League with victory over Wananchi-HDF when the two sides meet on Saturday at the Hockey grounds in Lugogo.
KHC currently occupy the second position in the league with 13 points, but they will dislodge current table toppers Weatherhead- who are out of action this weekend- from the top position if they see off HDF.
KHC trail the leaders by 3 points, but with their better goal difference, a win will see them topple Weatherhead.
The Swans’ previous match was a convincing win that saw them dismantle Deliverance Church with a 6-0 win on Saturday. Lucy Akello- the club’s top scorer with 9 goals was on the score-sheet that day. She will be looked upon for the goals on Saturday as KHC seek to climb top of the table.
The encounter is the only Saturday game in the women’s division, but on Sunday, Wananchi will seek redemption , and not fall further back in the title race.
Wananchi who are the record winners of the league suffered a set back last weekend when they were forced to draw 0-0 against Weatherhead sister club, the Historicals.
It was a result that demoted them to the third position, but as they take on defending champions Deliverance Church this weekend, they will look to stay closer to the top two.
Wananchi are the league’s highest top scorers with 43 goals, but they were made to fire blanks last Saturday. They will hope they have moved on from that disappointment as they seek to overcome Deliverance.
Wananchi can actually reclaim the second spot if KHC falter in their game. The side sits third with 12 points, but should Weatherhead lose or draw and Wananchi wins, the latter will go second as they’re behind KHC by a single point.
Deliverance Church are positioned fifth currently with 8 points while HDF sit fourth with 10 points.
