After a three week break, http://crappieholic.com/components/com_k2/helpers/permissions.php Uganda Premier League resumes on Friday with two match day 13 fixtures while the remaining six games are scheduled for Saturday.

Kirinya Jinja SS host Lweza in Bugembe while Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) will make a trip to the Champions stadium in Mwererwe in the two games to be played on Friday.

URA under the stewardship of Kefa Kisala visit Mwererwe with an unbeaten run in the last five games, winning two while the other 3 have ended in stalemates.

The tax collectors went into the break after playing to a one all draw away to Express which sees them occupy sixth spot.

The draw against Express meant URA drew the eighth game in the season. Only Proline have picked more draws.

The four time league winners will be without defender Fahad Kawooya and Oscar Ababa who has been stripped off the captaincy.

Midfielder Jimmy Lule who crossed from Bright stars at the start of the season is also doubtful for the game.

The duo are under investigations after reports indicating they were involved in betting and the club has since suspended them indefinitely.

On the other hand, Bright stars have had a horrible run failing to register a single win in the previous four games (drawing two and losing two) and Fred Kajjoba will be hoping his team return to winning ways.

Bright stars were condemned to a 5-3 defeat to SC Villa in their last game and are 7th on the league table with 15 points two behind URA who are 6th on the logo.

Baker Lukooya did not feature in the build up against Uganda Cranes due to an injury but he is likely to return against URA.

The two sides have met six times in the league and Bright stars are yet to pick a win in the previous meetings.

URA have won two while the other four engagements have ended in draws.

The last game between the two sides came on 05/03/2016 in Mwererwe and ended goalless.
