BUL FC start list that won against Blacks Power last saturday

It was a flying start for the Eastern Giants, thrashing Blacks Power 5-0 in the opener last weekend, which has left them in second spot on the table with three points, one behind early leaders – Maroons.

This is the kind of showings they want to carry into their second game of the season to set tone for the show down with URA coming six days later, and look to make it two on the bounce against the army side.

A positive result will begin to continue last season’s formidable home form which helped the Eastern Giants finish fourth last campaign.

As for UPDF, they have started the season fairly picking up a point off Express in the opening match but their winless streak stretched to three going back to last season.

Team News:

All players are in good health and ready for selection.

Assistant coach Richard Kasule

Assistant coach Richard Kasule Bakabulindi spoke ahead of the match and said the team is in the best conditions to win the game.

“UPDF is a strong team and it has been here for long. They have good coaches and we respect them. But despite them having all that, we expect to get all the three points tomorrow.”

That is the same line captain George Kasonko moved along, saying the 5-0 victory in the first match present much encouragement to win every game.

They are well experienced but we have also prepared well for them. We won our first game and it gave us the real picture of what we want to achieve this season, and that’s winning every match that comes across.”
