Defending Champions Acholi fought hard to hold Bunyoro in their backyard last weekend and they will be hoping to chance on their ever reliable home crowd at Pece Stadium to eliminate Bunyoro on Saturday.

On the same day, Kampala entertain Bukedi in Bugolobi. The reverse fixture ended one all in Butaleja with Travis Mutyaba salvaging a point for the City Boys.

The diminutive forward is however doubtful for this encounter having picked a hamstring during national team training.

Fred Kajjoba, the Kampala Province coach is convinced his troops will be able to overcome a stubborn Bukedi side.

Martin Kizza, Richard Basangwa, Owen Kasule and Titus Ssematimba are the players that Kampala will be hoping to get the job done.

Sunday will see Karamoja hosting West Nile in Moroto and the home side will need a miracle to overturn the first leg defit.

West Nile will still be without striker Muhammad Shaban who got injured on national team duty but they are optimistic for another convincing win.

The other game on Sunday will see Buganda, winners of the inaugural edition take on Kigezi in Nakisunga.

The first leg ended goalless and the hosts will be delighted to welcome back midfielder Saidi Kyeyune who missed the first leg due to National team commitments.

It should be noted that the winners on aggregate will progress to the next level.

In case the scores are level after the second leg, away goal rule will come into play.

However, if the score is still tied, then the winners will be decided on kicks from the penalty mark without playing extra time.
