· Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, 4pm
Following a three weeks break, the Purple Sharks return to action with a home tie against Mbarara City in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
The reverse fixture ended 1-0 in favour of us at Kakyeeka stadium with Kipson Atuheire netting the winner on his debut.
Edward Satulo is out with a long term injury. Rahmat Ssenfuka and Faizul Ibrahim returned to training but game comes too soon for them and Viane Ssekajugo starts to serve his four-match ban.
Ivan Bogere could start his first home game after debuting in the goalless draw with UPDF.
Coach Bamweyana said:
“We feel ready and the target is to have consistent decent results. The break has helped us to work on areas where we lacked and we are raring to go.”
This will be the fourth time we come up against the Ankole Lions; we have won two of the previous three and lost one.
Coach Livingstone Mbabazi returns to face the Purple Sharks since he left last year. His first ended in a 2-2 draw with Kyetume in a fixture we came from two goals down.
A win will see us secure the first double over the Ankole Lions for the first time.
