With just one away win so far this season, two points separate Mbarara City from relegation. This is not a good place to be languishing in for a team who wants to remain in the league.
But with coach Livingstone Mbabazi returning to the team, there are expectations all over among the club’s fans, as many are dabbing it as the return of the savior. But the final bend of the season will determine if this status can be achieved by the team that has only managed 3 wins this season so far.
The run of poor results by the Ankole Lions has been attached to the prolonged absence of former head coach Ssenyondo from the touchline, who has been away on U -17 national team duty as an assistant coach. It’s yet to be seen how Mbabazi will carry on his club duties with national team engagement.Final Report Comment: Given the style of play Mbarara City is expected to climb up the table just enough to stay clear of the relegation battle, but that will be only if the results come their way. Ugsports.net predicts a mid-table finish for the Ankole Lions.
