Express FC have everything to play for when they host Soana in their last game of the 2016-17 season at Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku.

The Red Eagles want not only to finish in the top five sides but also complete their first ever double over the Kavumba based side.

Matia Lule’s side come into the game 6th on the log with 43 points and victory will see them leapfrog Onduparaka in case they fall to Bul at Kakindu.

The Red Eagles scrapped a 2-1 over Soana in the reverse fixture in December but a lot has changed at the Kavumba side since with Alex Isabirye now in charge.

Then, it was Sam Ssimbwa, now at Sofapaka who was at the helm of the club.

The six-time league champions will also use the game as precursor to their Uganda Cup semi-final against KCCA whose date is yet to set.

Both sides come into the game on the back of slim 1-0 wins over Jinja sides with the hosts winning away to Sadolin Paints while the visitors beat Bul in Kavumba.

The previous five league meetings have produced 2 wins for Express, one for Soana whilst the rest have been stalemates.
