Norman Ojik played the game against Entebbe but still not fully fit while Hassan Wasswa Dazo, Hakim Ssenkumba, Muwadda Kateregga and Richard Kigozi Gazza did not make the trip.Mugabi is one of the players missing for Wakiso Giants.For Dove All Stars, they are in desperate need of a big result that may see them reach the promotion playoffs.The Arua based side are currently fourth on the standings with 31 points, three behind third placed UPDF who occupy the final playoff spot in the Elgon Group.Also trailing UPDF by 4 goals in terms of goal difference, Dove All Stars need to win by at least four goals and pray UPDF losses their last game.When the two side meet in the first leg, Wakiso and Dove All Stars drew 0-0 at the Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe.In the other Elgon Group games to be played on Thursday, Nebbi Central hosts UPDF FC at the Nebbi Grounds while Kataka entertains Amuka Bright Stars at the CRO Grounds in MbaleThe FUFA Big League games to be played on ThursdayRwenzori Group-Kitara vs Kireka United @Kigaya Grounds, Hoima-Kiboga Young vs Kira United FC @Busumate Grounds-Bumate United vs Water FC @Christ High Schoola Ground, Bundibujjo-Kabale Sharp vs Proline FC @Kabale Municipal Grounds, Kabale-Kansai Plascon vs Dove FC @Bishops SS Grounds, MukonoElgon Group-Nebbi Central vs UPDF FC @Nabbi Grounds, Nebbi-Kataka FC vs Amuka Bright Stars FC @CRO Grounds, Mbale-Dove All Stars vs Wakiso Giants @Green Light Stadium, AruaComments last_img read more
