Father Robert Ayiko, the chairman of the Arua-based Ediofe Hills Football Club, says his team must win its two games next week if they are to avoid relegation from the national super league.
Ediofe Hills FC will survive relegation if Masaka FC, which leads by three points, is beaten by mid-table Iganga FC and Boro-Boro FC, who are six points ahead, and sixth placed Bunamwaya.
Father Ayiko says it is only in such circumstances that Ediofe would have garnered six points to put it level with Boro-Boro and clear of the red zone that has the Maroons, Biharwe and Mbale CRO.

The matches ahead are going to be tough as Ediofe meets fourth placed Express FC and Kabale's Biharwe that has had a dismal first season and my unleash the kick of a dying horse.
Fans of Ediofe have complained that the once vibrant club is failing because of poor management and poor pay for players. However Father Ayiko dismisses this. He says that although Ediofe Hills' fortunes changed for the worse at towards the end of the season, it enabled players like goal scorer Caesar Okuti join the Cranes for international duty.
