Centre Moses Mer Maker will be expected to feature for City Oilers for the first time this season when the record league winners take on newcomers Rezlife at Lugogo.
Maker rejoined the Oilers in the recently concluded transfer window.
He was part of Oilers squad that won the title last season when he averaged 8 points and 6 rebounds before leaving the Country last year.
The South Sudanese was also part of Oilers squad that featured at the Road to BAL in Dar Es Salaam.
The Big man returned last week but missed Saturday’s game against Power which the Oilers won by 30 points at YMCA!
He was part of Monday’s practice session and will be expected to feature on Wednesday.
But the side will be without shooting guard cum small forward Luak Ruai who went to a training camp in Georgia.
South Sudanese forward Michael Ngut will continue to miss out with a reported injury.
The Oilers have their eyes on finishing the regular season unbeaten. They have all their 15 games, and sit second on the table behind Nam Blazers who have played five games more.
They beat Rezlife Saints 88-54 on March 29 and the second round fixture finds two teams with differing ambitions.
Rezlife Saints (3-11) are fighting to beat the drop this season, having won just three games this season, the fewest in the Division.
JKL (4-12), Ndejje (5-10), Rockets (5-11), UPDF (5-12) and KCCA (6-10) are the other sides in this year’s relegation drama.
The Saints, coaches by City Oilers former player Daniel Najja Juuko, have lost four games in a row – Our Saviour (47-60), KIU Titans (65-84), UCU Canons (60-72) and KCCA Panthers (48-70), with their last win coming against JKL Dolphins (57-55) on May 10.
