Maroons FC head coach Mohammed Ssenfuka is confident that his side will finish the job and earn promotion back to the StarTimes Uganda Premier League from the FUFA Big League.

The Prison Warders who were relegated in the 2019/20 season will play already relegated Nyamityobora FC on the final day of the season at Kyakyeka Stadium on Thursday.

“I know Nyamityobora will try to prove something despite being already relegated, they will want to go down in strength,” Ssenfuma told www.football256.com.

“But at this moment, the entire team knows exactly what we want, this game is more important to us than our opponents.”

“Nyamityobora can be a party spoiler, yes, everyone is ready for the task at hand and I am confident that we shall win and go up,” a relaxed Ssenfuma noted.

The Luzira-based side is positioned third on the 11-team FBL log with 35 points, one adrift of joint-leaders Kataka FC and Blacks Power FC who are tied on 36 points.

As Maroons will be playing Nyamityobora, Kataka, and Blacks Power will also be in action against Kyetume FC and Luwero United respectively.

Ssenfuma’s charges have a chance of earning promotion as the FBL champions as well, but there is also a possibility of them missing out on promotion.

They will win the league provided they win and both Kataka and Black Power lose.

On the other hand, they will miss out on promotion should they lose and Kyetume beats Kataka.

The Slaughters who are positioned fourth with 34 points are also still much in contention for promotion and a win in Mbale will guarantee them an immediate return to the SUPL.

The three top teams will earn automatic promotion to the SUPL while on the other hand, the three last teams will drop to the Regional League.

In the relegation case, Nyamityobora and MYDA FC have already dropped out of the FBL, and now Proline will be hoping that at least Kitara FC versus Ndejje University FC ends in a draw for them to survive.

Ndejje occupies the final relegation position, ninth with 23 points while Proline is placed eighth with 25 and the latter has played its 20 games.
