Arua Hill SC traverse West Nile to face Paidha Black Angels in their final first round fixture of the FUFA Big League on Sunday 25th April.

At the Bar Okoro Stadium, they seek to bounce back to winning ways in order to protect their position at the top after drawing with Gaddafi FC last Thursday.

The Leopards will be without the services of skipper Caesar Okhuti who suffered a groin injury shortly after opening the lead for Arua Hill in the 2 : 2 draw last thursday.

Also defender Patrick Matovu won’t play as recommended by the Physiotherapists to ensure proper recovery.

Allan Mugalu and Dan Birikwalira both have minor injury issues though they trained. Their fate lies in the hands of expert recommendation whose report will be out tomorrow morning.

Forward Sabir Edema trained today for the first time after he returned from sick leave but the game is too early for him.

Arua Hill opponents Paidha Black Angels are last in Elgon Group with a point collected in six games, they could turn and channel their frustration on the Leopards, but the boss is confident his boys are prepared for whatever comes their way.

“What we are working for is a win, for us our anticipation in every game is maximum points,” Mbalangu insisted

“Only when it doesn’t go as planned, that’s when we turn to a point,” he added.

“But we are going there full swing to get three points,” he continued.

“Paidha being at the bottom of the table doesn’t mean they’re weak, every team is strong, it’s how you use your chances and how you prepare for the game.

“So we know we are going to find a difficult game because it’s also a derby but we know how we play derbies.” He concluded.
