Our Saviour ended Falcons hot start to the season when the fresh men breezed past the six time champions 75-53 back in May.
Falcons had stringed together six wins in a row to start the season but after that loss to a team the was assembled in the off season, the losses have come easy with wins increasingly becoming difficult – in fact Falcons have won just 5 of 14 games since then.
With both teams at 11-10 for the season, a win for a either side can lift them to as high as the fifth place and avoid the top seed in the playoffs who will be determined on Friday night when City Oilers take on the UCU Canons.
Back in May, it was Syrus Kiviiri (24 points) and Yves Kalambayi (19 points) who tormented their former employers and might be no different tonight as Our Saviour boasts of three formers Falcons as their key players.
Falcons come into the game on the back of four losses (to UCU, Oilers, Ndejje and Warriors) and win in their last normal season game will give them some confidence heading into the post season.
Veteran forwards Steven Omony and Isaac Afidra will be tasked to lead the Falcons.
Our Saviour meanwhile comes into the game on the back of a tough 80-79 last minute loss to City Oilers last Friday and will be looking to making amends.
