With the Uganda Premier League almost reaching its climax, we take a look at survival chances for Kitara FC taking into consideration their current league standings and the points they can take from their remaining 6 matches, starting with what happened in gameweek 25 that will start tomorrow, Tuesday 18, 2021.

Kitara FC currently occupies the bottom position on the Uganda Premier League table with only 10 points after playing 24 games this season. The boys from Hoima district at this stage in this competition will need to win all their remaining league matches if they are to survive relegation. But even despite them winning all their matches, chances are they still will sink, because their survival chances would still be hanging on the assumption that teams currently above them in the 13th and 14th position don’t win or draw in any of their games.

But mathematically speaking the boys from Hoima have already been relegated and they just need to confirm it when they play MYDA FC in game week 25. Because a defeat in that game will mean that even if they were to win all their five remaining games, they will go to 26 points, which is the same amount of points as that of Busoga United who now stand in the 13th position.

Kitara FC remaining league matches will come against, MYDA FC (H), Express FC (A), KCCA FC (A), URA (A), SC Villa (H), and on the final day away to Mbarara City. With their remaining four games coming up against UPL heavy weights, Kitara FC’s fate of surviving in the top flight division of Ugandan football are close to none, as they don’t stand any chances of picking up all the points in all their remaining matches.

So from the look of things and mathematically speaking, their survival is indicating a red flag and my best guess is that RELEGATION will be their fate, and this will mean them passing the baton to one of the teams that will be promoted from the Uganda Big League this season.
