Blacks Power FC vs Arua Hill SC
Venue: Emokori Ground, Bukedea
Arua Hill will face Blacks Power in their last Big League meeting of the current campaign away from Arua on Sunday 16/05/2021 (4:00PM) and this will be at the Emokori ground. As the Leopards take on the eastern Uganda based outfit, the Bukedea based team are looking forward to level points with the Leopards whereas Arua Hill SC are aiming to complete a double, and maintain their position at the apex of the table as the second round resumes.
Arua Hill SC won their last fixture of the first round away against Paidha Black Angels and are eyeing to maintain an away winning streak. In their first round meeting with Blacks Power at Barifa on the 25/03/2021, they emerged victors following a 3-1 win, thanks to Paddy Muhumuza, Caesar Okhuti and Emmanuel Mutebi who scored the goals.
If the Leopards maintain the same against Blacks Power on Sunday, they will be registering their fifth win of the season and second away win.
Blacks Power are in 3rd position on the table with four wins in seven matches on the road. If the Bukedea side take their tally to five wins, they’ll level points with Arua Hill SC but their movement will depend on what happens between second placed Gaddafi FC and Mbale Heroes.
A Leopards’ win will present a perfect second round start for the table leaders whose desire to keep grip on the top spot would have been achieved as their points would have accumulated to 18. A draw though will still give them the right to lead but risk equaling points with Gaddafi FC.
Gadafi Gadinho will start in the midfield as his fitness and body shape has improved lately as Mbalangu confirmed. The gaffer also revealed Alfred Leku will lead the attack meanwhile Caesar Okhuti’s availability will be clear by tomorrow morning.
