Busoga United and Arua Hill SC will both be targeting maximum points when the two face off in the Startimes Uganda Premier League on Tuesday at FUFA technical center, Njeru.
This will be the third meeting between the two sides given the fact that Arua Hill came into the League last season and the Kongolo have won both the last two encounters.
Kenneth Lukyamuzi’s charges won 3-2 away in their last league encounter against Wakiso Giants last week on Saturday.
Back home, the Jinja based side have eyes on their second win at home as they have only picked one so far this season against Blacks Power.
On the other hand, Arua Hill who have ambiitons of bouncing back with victory, having lost 1-0 to Eastern Giants BUL in Arua last week on Tuesday.
The loss subjected Livingstone Mbabazi’s men to fifth loss this season. (URA away 1-0, Vipers away 1-0 , SC Villa home 1-0 , Gaddafi away 2-0 and BUL, home 1-0) .
Despite making a statement in their opening three games winning twice as they beat KCCA, UPDF and drawing once against Blacks Power, Arua Hill have since had a mixed number of results and are yet to live to their best.
The Kongolo going on to win only two times in the last seven games against Onduparaka FC at home and Express away since then.
Heading into this one, Mbabazi’s major worry will be the fact that his team has received three recard cards this season, hoping his boys will keep a clear head in order to take home three points
Arua Hill is sitted 8th on the League table with 16 points in 11 games this season.
Busoga United win their previous game 3-2 away against Wakiso Giants thanks to a Laban Tibita comeback brace while Arua Hill at home lost to BUL FC.
