The soldiers have two matches to go and will face off against fifth-placed Strathmore University and a final fixture against leaders NCPB.
"As of now, NCPB have a goal aggregate of 325 as compared to Ulinzi who have 217. The true picture will be known after Ulinzi play Strathmore next week," said KHF league coordinator George Asimeto.
"The scenario is, if Ulinzi wins both games against Strathmore and NCPB on the last day, the title will be decided on goal aggregate as both teams will have lost one match."
