Players during training in Mbarara this evening

MATCH: Mbarara City Vs BUL FC

LEAGUE: Uganda Premier League

DATE: Wednesday March 17, 2021

VENUE: Kakyeka Stadium @4PM

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

BUL FC will be looking to make it three wins on the spin on Wednesday when they go up against Mbarara City in a Uganda Premier League match at Kakyeka Stadium.

The team has enjoyed recent successes over Bright Stars and Kitara FC in their immediate last two games and this will be the inspirational factor in downing their Wednesday hosts to whom they have come second in their last three visits to Kakyeka 

This will be the eighth meeting between the two sides, with the Eastern Giants winning twice, drawing on two occasions and losing three of them.

BUL head into Wednesday’s tie with a lot of confidence, however, after not only winning their immediate last game, but, also because it comes on the back of hard-fought two consecutive away victories over Onduparaka and Bright Stars. 

They are positioned 9th while the Ankole Lions are found in 12th place on the UPL table with 19 and 13 points respectively

Robert Mukonghotya will be in contention for a starting slot after missing the Kitara game while on suspension. Joseph Ssemujju is still sidelined as is Hamis Tibita.

Kenneth Ssemakula is also not available for selection because license troubles.

The team will still have to do without the services of Abdul Malik Vitalis Tabu (toe injury), Peter Onzima (groin injury) and long term absentee Ambrose Kirya with knee pain.

Head coach Arthur Kyesimira speaking to players after training


“Last season we lost to Mbarara City here 1-0, a game that we played very well but we lost a lot of chances. We prepared well this season, this time round we have had a good run on our away games but it counts for nothing tomorrow. All I know is the boys have desire and motivation to do better not only on away or home games but they want to win every game.” Arthur Kyesimira Head coach
