Onduparaka FC plays host to Maroons FC in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at the Green Light Stadium on Tuesday 13th January.
The Caterpillars head into the game having savoured maximum points last week without breaking a sweat against Tooro United, after Tooro failed to raise the minimum required number of licensed players.
Maroons on the other hand, got their second round to a bad start as they suffered a 2-1 home loss to bottom side Proline FC
Onduparaka sit fifth on the log and could go third if results elsewhere go their way. While Maroons are 10th on the log with 19 points, seven points above the relegation places.
The last time both teams met in the first round, Onduparaka picked up a narrow 1-0 victory courtesy of Captain Gaddafi Wahabu’s penalty.
Onduparaka’s interim coach Simeon Masaba has a fully fit squad, but it is still not clear if they have resolved all their licensing issues, as they only had seven players licensed for the Tooro game.
The Caterpillars have already lost thrice at home this season, suffering a 3-1 humbling home loss to SC Villa the last time they played in front of their own fans.
The Prisons’ Warders have not been good travellers, failing to win in any of their previous three away games, but more worrying for head coach Douglas Bamweyana, they have not won in their last six fixtures, drawing three and losing as much.
Maroons have won just once against their hosts, with Onduparaka have registered three victories while only one fixture has ended in a stalemate.
