Star winger Chieffy Caligdong faces his former team for the first time as Green Archers United Globe and Philippine Air Force aim to earn their first victory in their clash in the United Football League action Thursday at the Emperador Stadium in Mckinley Hill in Taguig.

Caligdong, who transferred to Green Archers early this year, meets Air Force, where he played for almost a decade, at 5:15 p.m.

Despite Caligdong’s move to his new team, Green Archers are yet to secure a victory after dropping its first three matches of the season.

Air Force also started its League campaign on a bad note, losing its first two matches to join Green Archers, Pasargad FC and Philippine Army as the only squads without a win at this stage of the competition.

Aside from Caligdong, striker Tating Pasilan, midfielder Arnie Pasinabo and goalkeeper Patrick Deyto are also expected to boost the Green Archers.

Veteran striker Ian Araneta, meanwhile, will lead Air Force in its search for its first victory of the season.

In the nightcap, the Loyola Meralco Sparks aim to continue its winning ways as it tangles with the struggling Pasargad at 7:30 p.m.

The Sparks look to nail their fourth straight victory to grab a share of the lead in the League table. Pasargad, meanwhile, looks to finally score their first triumph of the season after suffering three straight defeats at the start of its campaign.

AKTV will begin the live coverage at 5 p.m.
