A draw against Proline will keep Isaac Ntege’s Kirinya-Jinja S.S in the league

League debutants Kirinya-Jinja SSS did a pretty good job against Lweza on Tuesday to take their survival bid to the final day.

The side secured a hard fought draw against Lweza to brighten their survival hopes, and now only a draw against Proline on Saturday – the final day of the campaign will seal league status for the side.

Of the sides battling relegation, Kirinya-Jinja SSS are somewhat off pressure. They can actually lose the game and still stay in the league provided Lweza fails to defeat Police by a difference of over four goals.

Football is a game of uncertainties, but it is unlikely that Lweza who have struggled upfront will defeat Police by a huge margin although they thumped Express 4-2 early this month.

Abbey Bogere, however, will not take that chance therefore; he will be keen on avoiding defeat against a side they lost to 1-0 in the reverse fixture.

Kirinya-Jinja SSS’ home form makes for a good reading. Five of their six victories in the league have come at home and they have collected 23 points in front of their home fans. Only KCCA [37], SC Villa [34], Onduparaka [31] and Vipers [30] have scored more points at home than Kirinya, and the only visiting team that managed maximum points against the side was Express.

They should be able to confirm their league stay in style with victory over the side they boast of a better head to head.

Aside from finishing the league strongly, Proline have nothing to fight for. Mujib Kasule’s men are safely placed eighth in the league with 38 points, and victory tomorrow will only lift them a place up to seventh, but that’s if Soana lose to Express.

Kirinya-Jinja SSS are tenth in the league with 32 points, level on points with local rivals Bul and three off the red line.
