The final group stage fixtures will see Bulemezi take on Mawokota at Kasana Grounds in Luweero while Mawogola host Buddu in Ssembabule on Sunday.

Elsewhere, Gomba's chances of making it to the quarterfinals came to an end following their 2-0 defeat to Ssese in a match played at Lutooboka playgrounds in Kalangala.

The record champions, who have played in eight finals, have won four matches and lost four leaving them in fourth sport in the Masengere Group with nine points while Buvuma is bottom of the log with no point.

Defending champions Ssingo are top of the group with 14 points followed by Ssese and Bugerere with 13 points each although Ssese has better goal difference.
