- Proline Vs Police – StarTimes stadium, Lugogo 4.30pm
Proline are in dire need of points to stay up as host Police but more focus will be on midfielder Gift Ali.
The attacking central midfielder faces his immediate former bosses who inspired to victory against his current bosses in the first round fixture at Namboole.
Gigi was involved in both goals as dominant Cops won 2-0 against Proline but he crossed the line back via a failed deal to Kenya’s Tusker FC.
To Gigi, the game means a lot to his ‘new bosses’ than him as an individual but the target is to win.
“It’s a tight game against a good side in Police,” said Gift. “It’s evident from the table standings that they are way better but we are looking forward to picking our first win of the first round,” he added.
As an individual, I am always professional and play my heart out for a team so it will be no different.
It won’t be Gift Ali alone though, in Police’s ranks, they have Rahmat Ssenfuka and Denis Marco Bigala, two former Proline players.
Ssenfuka has been superb for the Cops this season and we await to see his battle against a player he partnered with in midfield for the entire first round.
Proline, second from bottom with 22 points are winless in ten successive league games and defeat against the seventh placed Cops (32 points) will further frustrate their survival chances.
Ibrahim Kibumba is suspended for the Cops after he picked up a Red Card in the defeat to SC Villa and that gives chance to skipper Martin Mpuga to return to the side.
