Midfielder Owen Kasule says Lweza’s clashes against The Saints, Bul, Kirinya-Jinja SSS and Police -the side’s relegation rivals- in the Premier League are no-lose games for the side.

The Kajansi boys risk being demoted to the Big League as they find themselves seated 14th in the league standings with 22 points, with only eight games left to the climax of the campaign.

With the side occupying one of the dreaded positions in the League, Kasule is aware the pressure is on them to win against teams around them.

He said: “No one in the club is happy about our current position in the League which is why we have to fight so hard to make sure we leave that position.

“In not so long from now, we play The Saints and then Bul our relegation rivals. These we must treat as must win games for us, we cannot afford to lose against our direct rivals, because then we will be burying ourselves.

“We play Soana on 31st and they are not also safe. We have to fight in that game and make sure we don’t lose. We need at least two victories to be on a safe side and these should come against our relegation rivals. It is just a point separating us from Bul and The Saints and then two from Police.”

Since the turn of the year, Lweza have failed to secure maximum points in the League, drawing four while losing three times.

The side hosts fellow strugglers Soana next week on Friday at Wankulukuku when the League returns before travelling to Arua four days later for a duel with Onduparaka who are unbeaten at home.
