Fufa Women Elite League
Kawempe Muslim vs Kampala Queens
Valley ground 4:00pm
The battle between Annet Nakimbugwe and her daughter Hasifa Nassuna has been a cause of attention for the times the two have met on previous occasions.
And it will not be any different this Tuesday as the two once again face off in a Fufa Women elite league game to be played at the valley grounds in Kawempe.
Nakimbugwe has on most cases lost to the daughter with the latter being triumphant in 3 of the 4 league meetings including when the mother was at now defunct Buikwe She Red stars.
The last meeting was last year at Villa Park and Kawempe captained by Nassuna defeated Nakimbugwe’s Kampala Queens 1-0 courtesy of defender Yudaya Nakayenze powerful header.
Kawempe who come into this clash on the back of a shocking exit from the Fufa Women’s cup at the hands of Muteesa I Royal University will be seeking to make amends in this fixture.
Besides, a win for the two time league champions will mean Kawempe Muslim become the first team to seal a slot into the playoffs.
At 30 points, Kawempe lead Elizabeth group on 27 points in 9 games and victory would take them 12 points ahead of second placed Muteesa who have 3 games to play.
Kampala Queens on the other hand still have hopes to play in the playoffs but need to win all their remaining games. Surprisingly, all the games are against fellow contenders in Kawempe, Muteesa and UCU Lady Cardinals.
Faridah Bulega’s charges are 3rd on 16 points and a win against Kawempe Muslim will take them level on points with second placed Muteesa.
The top two teams in either group of Elizabeth and Victoria qualify to the playoffs to determine the champion.
