The title race has inevitably gone to the wire with less than four fixtures to be played.

Defending champions and current table leaders, KCCA football club (on 52 points) from 26 games entertains 3rd placed Uganda Revenue Authority (on 47 points) in a top of the table clash.

Second placed Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU), held goal-less last week by army side, Simba football club travels to Kavumba recreational stadium to play Police football club, currently lying 9th on the log (with 35 points).

SCVU is likely to name a strong team with defender Savio Kabugo, Dennis Iguma and Mathew Odong returning from injury.

Perennial mid-table team Police FC coached by Angelo Lonyesi is confident of another home victory following that 3- 2 result against Entebbe in the last game.

Equally so, the relegation race gets stiffer each passing day as the season comes to a close.

With bottom placed CRO virtually having sealed a berth in next season’s FUFA Big league, two more teams are severely fighting to keep in the top flight league.

Masaka L.C (20), Proline (21), Entebbe FC (23), Bright Stars FC (27) and Simba FC (27) are the teams still engaged in the mathematics against relegation with three games to play.

Masaka Local Council welcoming back team skipper, Ronald Lukungu faces an acid test with a date against an on form Express football club at Wankulukuku stadium, that has won five successive games.

Livingstone Mbabazi coached Bright Stars, 0 – 1 losers to Express in the last game hosts Entebbe FC, another side that lost their last game 2 – 3 against Police at Kavumba last Friday.

16 time record league record champions, SC Villa coached by Steven Bogere travels to the Mbale Municipal stadium to face a dejected CRO, who lost 0 – 4 to URA last Friday on the same venue.

SC Villa will bank on the form of striker Victor Emanayo, Karim Ndugwa and team skipper Ronald Muganga.

With the going getting tough both at the top and at the opposite end of the table, expect drama, tears and smiles.
