UPL: Top clubs seek to bounce back from Cup embarrassment

Top Ugandan Premier League clubs will be out to bury the disappointment of Uganda Cup elimination as the league resumes on Tuesday at various venues.

League leaders Vipers SC have a new technical bench after Edward Golola and his team was sent packing following their shock Cup loss to lowly Kajjansi United.

The new bench led by Fred Kajoba will be out to bring confidence back at St. Mary's when they travel to Bombo Barracks to take on 10th placed Mbarara City. 

In another match, second-placed KCCA FC will take on 13th placed Kyetume at The Mighty Arena in Jinja. The Kampala side will be out to register a double over their mid-table side who are seeking their sixth win of the season.

No special favours

At Lugogo Stadium, struggling side Proline FC efforts to crawl out of the basement continues as they host a rampaging Police FC. Police have won their last three matches and don't look like they are in the mood of dishing out any favours especially after being knocked out of Cup by non-league side Admin FC in Tororo on Saturday. 

In the final match of the day, on-form URA FC travels to Fort Portal to play Tooro United at St. Pauls Seminary. Tooro has had a tough campaign this season but the Taxmen are on course to register their fifth win on the trot. Tooro will surely not be a blot on such stellar record.
