Onduparaka are a step away from being relegated and will be visiting an unfriendly ground at Lugogo against title chasing KCCA FC at 4pm.

KCCA are enjoying a rejuvenation under new coach Jackson Mayanja who has relentlessly spoken about settling for nothing but the league title.

KCCA can go top of the table if they win before the current leaders SC Villa visit Maroons on Wednesday.

Villa have 46 points from 24 games while KCCA come second with 44 points from 22 outings.

Mayanja has won both his first two games against Villa (4-1) and Gadaffi (1-0) last week in Jinja thanks to a Julius Poloto lone goal.

Onduparaka sit bottom of the table with 14 games from 23 games and could be officially relegated next week if they lose today at Lugogo.

The Caterpillars rallied from behind twice to force a 2-2 draw in the Arua Derby against neighbors Arua Hill in their last game.
