The record champions will look up to Martin Kizza, goalkeeper Samson Kirya and George Senkaba for inspiration.Match Facts:Villa won the first meeting between these two sides earlier this season 2-0 at the Masaka Recreation Grounds.With the 1-0 win over Bul turned into defeat, this means that UPDF go into the game having won only one of their last nine games in all competitions (D3 L5). The win was against URA in a 1-0 victory at Bombo at the start of last month.UPDF have won only 2 of their last nine league games (D3 L4), a run that leaves then only a point from safety.The Army side side has been good at home this season, losing only three of their 13 games in Bombo including the Bul loss incurred by virtual of a board room decision.For Villa, they come into the game having lost only one of their last 12 games in all competitions (W9 D2).In the league, the Jogoos have tasted defeat in only two of their last 23 games, 1-0 at home to Vipers and then a similar scoreline away to KCCA. In that period, Villa has gone on to win 15 games and drawn the other six.However, their away form has been worrying all season, managing only four victories in their 12 fixtures on the road (D6 L2).Against the current bottom three, Villa has all four of its fixtures against them and that will serve as inspiration for Mukatabala and co.At Kavumba, Soana will entertain Onduparaka desperately in search of three vital points that will ease relegation fears for Smart Obed’s side.A run of poor results that have seen Soana lose four and draw one of their last five league games has put the Kavumba based side only two points above the relegation zone with three games to play.For Onduparaka, they are on course to their best ever league finish as they currently seat fourth, four points ahead of Kirinya JSS in fifth.Another game to be played on Saturday will see relegation threatened Mbarara City and Proline do battle at the Kakyeka stadium.With only two points separating the two sides, it will be a match that will be played in a spirit of a final as a loss for either side may have grave relegation implications.Proline start the day second from bottomMbarara seat in 12th at the start of the day with 28 points from 27 games while Proline occupy 15th but have a game in hand.Elsewhere, Kirinya JSS will host bottom of the pile Masavu FC with the visitors desperate for points as time is running out on them.With only three games to go, Masavu are still rooted at the foot of the table and seat four points adrift of safety. For Kirinya, they will be targeting a best ever points tally in the top flight as they currently have 38 and seat in fifth on the log.At Namboole, two former giants will clash as URA entertain Express FC.Sam Simbwa who is the head coach of URA currently was the last man to stir Express to the league crown in the 2012 season and if he defeats his former side, he may have probably put some impact on their (Express) relegation.Sam Simbwa was the gead coach of Express when they last won the leagueExpress are currently seating only goal difference away from relegation and with them yet to play title chasers Villa and Vipers, three points from the game on Saturday will be welcomed as ‘god’.Comments Azam Uganda Premier League

We would appeal to everyone attending the rally, that safety on our roads is paramount and should always takes precedence above everything else. Please, keep the race in its place”.
