THE second round of the City Tyres Super League kicked off over the weekend and all indications are that there will be a tight battle in groups A and B.
According to this season’s format, the top two teams in each group will qualify for the quarter finals, to be joined by the best two third placed teams from the three groups.
The remaining seven will be engaged in a relegation battle to determine the five who fall off to the first ‘regular’ division.
Express coach Godfrey Nyola says all teams are worried about the embarrassment of fighting to stay in the top league.
“We must first of all ensure that we avoid playing in the relegation battle because one can never be sure to survive,” Nyola confessed.
But while Nyola’s Red Eagles look certain to make it from Group C, other top sides like SC Villa in Group A and KCC in Group B face stiff competition for the two automatic qualifying places.
Villa who have played only one game in the competition due to the Tusker Cup venture which ended in Mwanza on Saturday, return to local action on Sunday away to Mbarara.

  • Jackson Mayanja’s unbeaten Kiyovu FC dented APR’s Rwanda league championship winning credentials after a pulsating 0-0 draw at the Kamanyola stadium on Saturday.
    “We are third and with a good chance for the title,” said Mayanja.
    APR had team tactician Jacob Mulee suspended earlier because of poor results.

  • FUFA referees from Zone Two have protested the appointment of only three football referees from their area to officiate in the on-going City Tyres Super League.
    In a letter by zone referees chairman Moses Wagambula, they accused the FUFA normalisation committee of side-lining 152 active and qualified referees in six districts.
    Only Gerald Dunga and assistant referees Yahaya Kitti and Abdallah Kayiwa were invited for the national Cooper tests.
