MATCH: SOLITILO BRIGHT STARS FC Vs BUL FC

LEAGUE: Uganda Premier League

DATE: Wednesday March 10, 2021

VENUE: Kavumba Recreational Center Stadium @4PM

*Note: Fans registration for seasonal tickets is ongoing at the club offices

Head Coach Arthur Kyesimira will be after a quick response from his players as BUL FC pay a visit to Bright Stars for their Uganda Premier League tie at Kavumba Recreational Grounds on Wednesday.

The team suffered a setback in their last time out at the hands of Wakiso Giants in Bugembe, with Viane Ssekajjugo being the chief orchestrator of the 1-0 defeat. BUL had won two games on the trot before that unfortunate match.

The hosts are in 10th place while the Eastern Giants are in position 11 on the sixteen team log with 14 and 13 points respectively.

Solitilo Bright Stars suffered defeat against Onduparaka in their most recent outing at home and Wednesday now provides the opportunity to the Eastern Giants to pile more misery upon their hosts by bagging all three points and make more ground in the chase for top positions on the UPL table

Team News

Forward Joseph Ssemujju will have to undergo a late fitness test having missed the last two games with ankle problem.

While Abdul Malik Vitalis Tabu (toe injury), Peter Onzima (groin injury) and long term absentees and new recruit Ambrose Kirya remain on the sidelines.

Goal keeper Davis Mutebi is back from illness while captain Fredson Gwoto might be restored back in the team after a compassionate leave.
