The Women Super League comes to a conclusion today Wednesday with two matches to be played at the FUFA Technical Center Njeru.

In the main event match will be the two finalists Lady Doves from Masindi facing off  UCU Lady Cardinals at 12pm.

Lady Doves FC will be aiming for their first ever League Title win against UCU Lady Cardinals FC in tomorrow’s encounter.

The two clubs have also met before this season in group two where Lady Doves stunned UCU by 2-1 courtesy of Fazila Ikwaput’s brace and Hasiffa Nassuna scoring the one goal for UCU.

The Believers will be hunting their first ever top division title since promotion.

The two clubs have met Four times both in competitive matches and friendly matches but Lady Doves have two wins whereas UCU has only won once in the finals of 2019.

Lady Doves FC’s goal merchant Fazila Ikwaput is still a doubt with an injury sustained in the early minutes of the semifinal game against Kawempe Muslim where she collided with Valley warriors defender Samalie Nakacwa  and stretched off the pitch, but we shall wait until the final medical report is made about the extent of the injury, so the club will depend on players like Reticia Nabbosa, goal keeper and captain Daisy Nakaziro, Jowelo Nagadya and not forgetting the outstanding Lydia Nyandera. 

UCU Lady Cardinals will have their hopes in captain Hasifah Nassuna, goalkeeper Ruth Aturo and Shadia Nankya for the Title.
