SUPL: URA, Vipers, Express to continue battle for top position.
Match-day 23 of the Startimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) is set to continue tomorrow with a sumptuous lineup of six (6) games, with a raging battle for top position between URA FC, Vipers SC, and Express FC, which looks set to go down to the wire.
URA FC will be playing host to Police FC at the Arena Of Visions, Ndejje.
The ‘Tax Collectors’ (URA FC) need a win against the ‘Cops’ (Police FC) to maintain top position in the standings for at least another Gameweek.
The Sam Simba coached side (URA) drew with Vipers SC in their last game, but are now looking to move their season’s tally to fifty four (54) points.
Vipers SC will visit a side that is in kind of a goal drought, that is, SC Villa, at Bombo playground at 4pm.
The Kitende-based side (Vipers SC) are second on the log, one (1) point behind table leaders, URA FC. If the Fred Kajoba coached team are still in the hunt for the league trophy, they have to do their best to collect maximum points against the ‘Joogos’ (SC Villa).
Vipers SC’s Yunus Ssentamu is expected to continue his goal scoring streak against SC Villa to try and help his team go top of the table or at least keep the pressure on URA FC.
Express FC will be up against 7th placed UPDF FC at home at the Betway Muteesa II s
In their previous game, Express FC won 2-3 away to Kyetume FC, courtesy of a hat-trick from flamboyant talent, Erik Kambale.
The ‘Red Eagles’ (Express) have a chance of climbing to the top of the table if they win against the army side (UPDF) and their title rivals in URA FC and Vipers SC fail to win their respective games.
