BUL Football Club – Jinja host MYDA on Friday afternoon looking to end their three-match winless streak in the Uganda Premier League.
Both sides fell to defeat in the previous round of matches, with Arthur Kyesimira’s side coming up short at Vipers SC while MYDA FC were put to the sword in their own backyard by Express.
Ranking 13th on the UPL table with seven points, 14 points behind pacesetters Vipers SC, and with 21 games remaining to end the season, BUL can realistically still challenge and achieve a top four spot. Why not?
Therefore, the soccer giants from Jinja City still have ambitions to end the season on a high and will be determined to rekindle their season on Friday with a comfortable victory over the UPL newcomers from Tororo whom they are meeting for the first time in the league.
MYDA have endured a shoddier run of their own, collecting just one point from nine matches and suffering four defeats in succession on the road. They are glued in 16th place on the UPL sixteen team log.
Forward Deogracious Ojok will be subjected to a late fitness test but mid fielders: Abdul Malik Vitalis Tabu, Joseph Ssemujju and right back Peter Onzima are still out with injuries.
Kenneth Ssemakula will again be not available for selection. The youngster is away on national duty with Uganda Hippos in Mauritania for AFCON finals
Assistant Coach Daniel Mubiru said that the team will be out on Friday for nothing short of three points.
“We are most likely to win tomorrow’s game against MYDA. We respect them because they are also struggling and need the three points but we have had better preparations,” the coach noted
Despite sitting in the bottom half of the table, the coach is hopeful that BUL FC can still ascend to the top.
“We are optimistic we can still catch up with teams in the top pack because we have rectified the issues that we have had before.”
