David GOMBE 

Wakiso Giants will be seeking for a third straight win when they host URA FC on Tuesday at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium.

The Purple Sharks have won both of their previous games a 2-1 home win against Blacks Power and the 1-0 victory at UPDF FC.

The tax collectors on the other hand are aiming to return to winning ways after their 2-2 disappointing home draw against Soltilo Bright Stars. They will however be motivated with the previous visit to Kabaka Kyabaggu when they shred Wakiso 5-0 last season.
