Tuesday December 28
Uganda Premier League
Kick off : 3PM
BUL Football Club, who have lost just one home game this season, welcome Arua Hill SC to Kyabazinga stadium for what promises to be an incredibly entertaining tuesday afternoon clash.
This is a clash between the third and the fourth with the duo separated by a single point.
Alex Isabirye’s side are enjoying a four -game unbeaten run in the league, drawing their last two games though.
The Eastern Giants have won 6 games, drawn four and lost two of their 12 outings this campaign to sit third on the table after collecting 22 points.
Breathing in their neck is the in-form Kongolos who are looking to stretch their unbeaten run to seven. Livingston Mbabazi’s leopards have won four of their last six games, with their last loss coming home to KCCA FC in late November.
Overall, they have won six games, drawn and lost three apiece to gather 21 points.
The Kongolos have the fourth best away record in the league having only been beaten twice on the road.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides.
This game has come to soon for Ambrose Kirya and Hamis Tibita who are still in the treatment room because of injuries. Isabirye therefore does not have any fresh injuries in his team and almost has a full squad to select from.
What they said
Team manager Alex Isabirye:
“The players are ready and I believe we have the potential to win this game. We count 22 points and they have 21, and each team wants the three points. Fortunately we are at home and I think we shall win. I therefore urge the fans to come and support us because were are incomplete without them.”
“We expect to win tomorrow’s game because every player is in good conditions and we have got enough preparations. And for that reason, our fans should come and support us in big numbers.”
