The red eagles make a short trip to Kavumba to get on an unpredictable Soana that have had an impressive start to the season sitting third on the logo on 23 points, patient only eight behind league leaders KCCA.

Soana head coach Sam Ssimbwa was heavily linked to the Express job before Lule eventually was announced and he meets a side that he is familiar with.

Ssimbwa was at Wankulukuku in 2011/2012 season helping Express win the league title, check their last and have now gone four seasons trophy less.

Soana come into the game on the back of a comfortable 3-0 win against BUL away in Jinja and will hope the result will give them momentum in the clash against Express.

However, the Kavumba based side will have concerns about their home record this season failing to record victory in their previous 4 homes games.(drawing two and losing two).

In the similar capacity, Matia Lule will have to improve his defence especially on away grounds.

Express have conceded 9 goals in their last three games away from home (3-2 vs Villa, 3-3 vs Police and 3-1 loss to KCCA)

This will be the 7th meeting between the two sides with each team winning on two occasions while the other three meetings have ends in draws including the recent meeting on 12/04/2016 which ended one all.

Soana boost of the best defence lines in the league conceding just nine goals thus far. Only Sadolin Paints and Kirinya Jinja SS have shipped in fewer (8).
