Malaba Youth Development Association is a team that comes all the way from Eastern Uganda. It is located In Tororo and currently they occupy the 15th position in the league. Their most recent match in the UPL came against their immediate neighbors Busoga United where they beat them by 3:0, in a performance that gave them their third win of the season.

But today our focus is basically on their survival chances in the league for next season top flight football in the country. The Flying Eagles of Malaba need a total of 18 points from their remaining 6 league matches if they were to stand any chance of surviving in the league, and even with all the 18 points, their survival is also still hinging on the conditional probability that the teams above them lose almost all of their remaining matches.

This season, MYDA FC have won only 3 games, drawn 5 games, and lost 16 of the 24 matches they have played already in the league. The total amount of points they have surrendered this season are about 58 points, which are enough for them to lead the Uganda Premier League table.  This has done damage to their UPL survival hope for next season, as they need to stand as the most qualified team along with Kitara FC to exit the UPL in favour of the two teams that will qualify from the Big League this season.

In their 6 remaining fixtures, they travel away to Kitara FC on game week 25, play home at Wakiso Giants, followed by another home fixture against BUL FC, before they go away to Express FC and host KCCA in the second last game and finally end the season at home to Uganda Revenue Authority who might on that day be crown champion of the Uganda Premier League.

All these fixtures are tough ones and sincerely speaking MYDA FC have an uphill task ahead of them if they were to pick any points from them. But roughly they need to win all their matches that will give them a total of 18 points from the 6 games starting with gameweek 25. They need to go to 31 points in game week 30, in order to survive given that the teams above them fail to win or keep drawing in their remaining games which is practically impossible. So my predictions RELEGATION come game week 30.

Predictions RELEGATION with close to no chance of survival.
