LEAGUE: Uganda Premier League
DATE: February 16, 2021
VENUE: MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo at 4pm
*Note: Fans registration for seasonal tickets is ongoing at the club offices
BUL FC will be hoping to continue their impressive record against Police FC when they travel to Lugogo on Tuesday afternoon.
The Jinja City based soccer giants have won their last five duels against the cops with three of them coming on the road.
Police head into this contest on the back of four victories from six matches, the latest coming against Kyetume FC.
Meanwhile, BUL FC have won only one game away from home this season against Busoga United 1-3 BUL FC, lost two on the run against UPDF FC (2-1) and Kyetume (1-0) and remained 12th on UPL table rankings despite of their 2-1 home sweet win over KCCA on Friday, while the peace keepers are currently in second position.
Goals from Musa ‘Simba’ Esenu and Robert Mukongotya earned them that latest victory, and the most impressive.
However, Charles Lwanga’s late consolation goal at Kyabazinga Stadium means that Arthur Kyesimira charges have not kept a clean sheet yet this season.
At the other end of the pitch, the Lugogo side are the third highest scorers with 14 goals so far and have the best defence in the league, having conceded only 3 times in six games.
It could be a vital week ahead for BUL, as after visiting Police they face Express and Vipers in the next fixtures.
Right back Peter Onzima and forward Abdul Malik Vitalis Tabu are ruled out of this tie with groin and toe injuries respectively. Striker Deogracious Ojok will also not feature after sustaining a knock in a practice match against Uganda Cubs on Saturday.
Influential captain Fredson Gwoto and Richard Wandyaka are still short of match fitness.
Head Coach – Arthur Kyesimira said his team is aiming at shooting down Police at their own backyard despite having injuries in his camp.
“We have a few injuries but the rest of the team is in good shape. We have prepared well and expect nothing short of three points from tomorrow’s game.”
Club captain – Fredson Gwoto expressed the team’s readiness to win against their opponents and re echoed the coach’s remarks.
“Coaches have prepared us very well. We are ready for Police and we promise to come back with a comfortable victory.”
