League debutants, MYDA FC are on the brink of relegation back to the Big League with 4 games to the end of this year’s UPL.
They lost 2-1 to Wakiso Giants on Friday 21 May 2021.
This leaves them second last on the table only above relegated Kitara FC. They are currently on 14 points.
With 4 games to play, there’s a possible 12 points up for grabs if they manage to win all their remaining games. Which would take them to 24 points overall.
This would be a massive escape for MYDA FC but it would not be enough to dodge relegation unless Busoga United fails to win any of their four remaining games.
A 4-0 defeat to table leaders Express FC on Friday summarized how bad the season has been for Kitara FC.
The loss all but confirmed Kitaea’s relegation to the Big League as it is now mathematically impossible to overtake Busoga United currently occupying the 13th position.
They currently have 13 points with four games to the end of the season. If they win their next 4 games, they stand at 25 points.
The last team above the relegation zone is Busoga United FC with 26 points for the season.
This means even with maximum points, Kitara FC cannot go above Busoga United FC leaving them in the relegation zone therefore automatic relegation to the FUFA Big League.
Kitara FC are the first team to be officially relegated this season.
In the mixup for the relegation battle is MYDA FC, Busoga United FC as mentioned above, BUL FC, Kyetume FC, Onduparaka FC and Mbarara City FC.
