SC Victoria are without a win in two league matches, but have lost none at home in the second round of the league.
On Friday, Victoria hosts desperate Express that faces relegation.
Fifth-placed KCC will welcome Masaka LC side who haven’t registered any win in the last seven league games.
Vipers’ will travel to Mbale to play against CRO; they are meeting a side that has not tasted any league defeat since November 12 save for Simba.
With the presence of on-form strikers, Mia Farouk, Yunus Ssentamu and Edward Golola, the Vipers’ coach is yet to write-off his men for Friday’s win.
“All players are fit to face CRO and hopefully, we will win that game to remain in the title contention,” recounts Golola.
In case of a win, Vipers will have stretched the lead to five points ahead of second placed URA.
Elsewhere, Simba will be looking for a first win in five games when they travel to SC Villa at Nakivubo, while BUL will want to cling on to their hopes of climbing to the top five as they take on Soana at Kavumba.
