The two sides are next to each other on the pile with the cops lying 4th with 24 points while the taxmen are third with 27 points.

The team settled for a stalemate in the previous match but the head coach Abdallah Mubiru hopes for better today despite a number of missing players.
“It’s true we have more injured players but the available can deliver. We have worked over our mistakes that denied us three points in the previous match with SC Villa and I am hopeful that the boys shall have better game management,” Mubiru said during a pre match press conference.
The visitors beat Kyetume FC 2-0 in the previous match and haven’t lost in their last six matches winning five and drawing the other.
