Friday 10th March presents a premier league duel between two struggling Jinja sides as bottom side JMC hosts Sadolin Paints at Kakindu Stadium in a second Jinja derby in a space of four days.
Although the visiting team ended a run of four straight defeats last weekend in their 3-0 victory over Bright Stars at Namboole, it’s a tale of two teams struggling for form.
Sadolin displayed one of their best performances this season against Bright Stars, scoring three goals for the first time this term, but were unable to keep URA in check on Tuesday as they lost 1-0 in the fading minutes of the game.
It was a painful loss as admitted by their head coach Peter Kirumira, and now tomorrow’s game is a match they can’t afford to lose considering their current worrying position in the league.
For the first time since shifting to Namboole for their home games last month, the Painters return to their home town looking to avoid a slip up against a team they edged 1-0 in the first round to claim their first victory of the campaign.
For JMC, this may be their last chance to turn their season around. It’s been a catastrophic campaign for the side, one the fans will want to forget as quickly as possible.
Their failure to secure a win this season has kept them bottom of the table with only 8 points, and they enter tomorrow’s match low in confidence following a 4-2 loss to Proline on Tuesday
