FBL: Sporting, Kirinya in Clashes For Life

Onduparaka are six points away from Premier league

Eight interesting fixtures are lined up on Thursday in the country’s second tier league. The battle for a direct promotional spot takes centre stage in the Elgon group where both table leaders -Onduparaka and Sporting United will be looking to maximising their options heading into the last day.

In the books, ampoule Onduparaka have a rather easier encounter against eighth placed Boma Young FC who are mathematically safe from relegation.

The caterpillars top the group with 47 points, three away from second placed Sporting United though the Lira side stands a game at hand. The two will play the decider on 14th May in Aria.

However, before that Sporting under coach Ongwal Engwedo have to navigate through Ndejje University today in Luweero. Ndejje will not be a walkover as they seek maximum results to keep hopes of a playoff spot which is tightly contested by Paidha Black Angels.

Ndejje have racked 40 after 21 games, one more than Paidha who have three points lesser. The Black Angels are in Mbale to play CRO FC.

In the Rwenzori group, the main action is centered in Jinja where Kirinya will be hosting Masavu. The visitors have playoff spot secured but work on finishing second to get a ‘weaker’ opponent in the playoff semis.

Jinja SS with 46 have a slimmer chance of grabbing the direct promotion spot in case they win the last remaining games and Proline falter.

“The mood is great, the boys are mentally and physically ready for the last lap. We can no longer manage to falter tomorrow (against Masavu),” Jinja SS coach Abbey Kikomeko said.
