She Corporate FC, UCU Lady Cardinals, Rines SS WFC, Olila H/S WFC, Asubo Gafford Ladies FC, Lady Doves and She Makerere are all not safe.

They are within a 5 points zone at the bottom of the FUFA Women’s Super League and in danger of dropping into the FUFA Elite League.

With the FUFA Women’s Super League season entering its final three games, just 5 points separate 4th-placed Lady Cardinals from 10th-placed She Makerere.

So, who is most at risk of dropping down to the FUFA Women Elite League? Here are the seven teams fighting for survival.

4. UCU LADY CARDINALS

The Mukono-based side have won 6, drawn twice, and lost 7 times in 15 games. They have scored 21 goals and conceded 22 goals so far.

They lost their previous league game 2-0 to Uganda Martyrs LWFC at home.

In the first round, they collected six points out of the possible nine against the remaining games.

Points: 20
Remaining fixtures: Lady Doves(H), Olila H/S WFC (A), She Makerere (A)

5: SHE CORPORATE FC

It has already been a difficult season for the reigning champions, seeing them fighting relegation.

The Sharks have been struggling to score goals in the second round after their key players Naome Nagadya, Joanita Ainembabazi, Phiona Nabbumba, and others moved on for greener pastures.

With only three games to the climax of the season, the Sharks are only three points above the relegation zone.

Points: 18
Remaining Fixtures: Asubo Gafford (H), Rines SS WFC (A), Kawempe Muslim LFC (H)

6: RINES SS WFC

It is becoming a habit for Rines SS WFC to fight against relegation every season, and they needed a result in their final game to survive last season.

The first round of the season was really tough for them but they got back to their feet in the second round winning 3, drawing 2 and losing just once.

Rines SS WFC clawed their way out of the relegation zone with Sunday’s priceless victory at relegation rivals She Makerere home ground.

Points: 18
Remaining Fixtures: Kampala Queens FC (A), She Corporate FC (H), Asubo Gafford LFC (A)

7: OLILA H/S WFC

Olila suffered a damaging 3-1 home defeat to Kampala Queens FC last Sunday that piled the pressure on boss Pande Cifu.

The Soroti-based side’s recent form has been inconsistent; quite simply, you do not know which version of Pande Cifu’s side will materialise each week.

Will it be the side that beats Uganda Martyrs or loses against bottom teams?

With only one point separating them from the last two teams, Olila will visit She Makerere this Sunday with both teams eyeing maximum points in a do-or-die encounter.

Points: 16
Remaining Fixtures: She Makerere (A), Ucu Lady Cardinals (H), Uganda Martyrs LWFC (A)

8: ASUBO GAFFORD LADIES

Gafford finished the first round at the bottom of the log, but the appointment of Coach Rogers Nkugwa brought better fortunes.

Since the arrival of coach Rogers Nkugwa, Gafford has won 4 and lost 2 in 6 games played so far in the second round.

Points: 16
Remaining fixtures: She Corporate FC (A), She Makerere (H), Rines SS WFC (H)

9: LADY DOVES

It’s been dark days for the Masindi side since they drew with She Corporate FC at home and dropped to the  red zone with three games to go.

The Believers have failed to win a game in the second round, drawing 3 and losing 3, leaving them in the relegation positions.

The 2020/21 champions will have to win at least two of their three remaining games or even win all the games or else they may find themselves playing FUFA Women Elite League next season.

Points: 15
Remaining games: Ucu Lady Cardinals (A), Uganda Martyrs LWFC (H), Kampala Queens FC (A)

10: SHE MAKERERE

She Makerere suffered a demoralising 3-2 away defeat to relegation rivals Rines on Sunday which left them rooted to the foot of the table, one point from safety.

Fred Ndawula‘s side have collected seven points in the second round but the effort is not enough for safety as they’re at the bottom of the table.

The campusers will have to use home advantage since they have won all their home games in the second round and they still have  two home games of the remaining three games.

Points: 15
Remaining fixtures: Olila H/SWFC (H), Asubo Gafford LFC (A), Ucu Lady Cardinals (H)

Basing on current form, She Makerere and Lady Doves are likely to be relegated from the league if their relegation rivals don’t slip up.

The Fufa Women’s Super League will resume this weekend with five games;
