Maroons, Express resume title charge
Bell Super League table leaders, Maroons, return to action this weekend hoping to consolidate their position.
Four other ties are also lined up, with three on Friday and the rest the following day. Friday will see Victors hosting Simba, Masaka travelling to Bunnamwaya and Express away to Kira Young.
Maroons, who will hope they win to keep the distance between them and Express, will then take on Entebbe Young on Saturday and Police will pray to put behind their defeat to Entebbe in the previous game when they face off with Kira Young.
Maroons, coached by Asaph Mwebaze, are enjoying their best season yet, topping the standings with 29 points after 11 games.
They dispatched Kira Young 3-0 in their previous outing and will have to remain at their best against a rejuvenated Entebbe side.
And Express, who play a day earlier than Maroons, will be under pressure to pick maximum points at Bunnamwaya, who are also still looking for their first win of the season, if they are to keep the leaders within sights.
The Red Eagles beat Masaka 2-1 in their previous encounter and trail Maroons by seven points, both having played the same number of games.
