UPDF has an uphill task this weekend at Nam boole Stadium as they battle to stay in the top bracket of the National Netball League.

Skipper Annet Nakiwu’s side is currently third on the table after losing their previous encounter to Prisons a week ago. They are scheduled to play two games today as they bid to maintain their place.

They will start the day with a game against newcomers Maroons before facing the mighty NIC in their other game of the day.

“We just need to work extremely hard to make sure we stay in the top positions and this means we have to balance our strength not to lose any game,” Nakiwu said.

NIC lead the table with 12 points in six games.
