MATCH REPORT: OJOK, MUKONGHOTYA SCORE TO SECURE SUPERB AWAY VICTORY.

Players celebrate after Ojok scoring an opener
  • BUL secure second away successive victory
  • Ojok and Mukongotya on target
  • The Eastern Giants host Kitara on Saturday

BUL FC cruised to a 2-0 win against Soltiro Bright Stars at Kavumba Recreation Grounds on Wednesday. 

Deogracious Ojok’s fine strike from close range in the first-half saw  BUL FC well in control at half-time. 

The Eastern Giants continued in the same vain at the start of the second-half and their magnificent play presented another goal scoring opportunity on 49 minute. Fredrick Kigozi sought for the head of Ojok with a well laid in cross but the forward’s free header flew a few inches wide of the post.

They made sure of their victory nine minutes after the hour mark. Robert Mukongotya, who had been a threat to the hosts throughout the game, arrowed in a second goal for the team with his trade mark thunderbolt from a free kick near the centerline.

The goal kicked BUL into gear and they began to have more joy containing the Bright Stars threat and continue to pose problems for their opponents at the other end.

With this cushion, assistant coach Dan Mubiru brought on some fresh faces. Ibrahim Mugulusi replaced Charles Sempa, Martin Aprem came in for Mukongotya while Musa Esenu took up the place for Ojok in the 70th, 85th and 89th minutes respectively.

This was BUL FC’s first win in the last six visits to Bright Stars.

The result lifts the Eastern Giants to 9th position on the sixteen team log with 16 points from 13 games played in the Uganda Premier League ahead of Saturday’s clash with Kitara FC at Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe – Jinja City.

MATCH PREVIEW: BUL FC READY FOR KCCA TEST

MATCH: BUL FC Vs KCCA FC

LEAGUE: Uganda Premier League

DATE: February 12, 2021

VENUE: Kyabazinga Stadium Bugembe at 4pm

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

This fixture usually produces fireworks and you can expect no different on this Friday when the Eastern Giants host the 13 league champions, KCCA FC, at Kyabazinga Stadium – Bugembe in JinJa City for what is always an eagerly-awaited occasion.

Setting the scene: 

BUL FC are in 12th position with 4 points from 5 league games. KCCA FC, meanwhile, will be glad to return to domestic action after suffering a painful ejection from CAF Confederations Cup at the hands of AS Kigali of Rwanda and sit in 5th place on the table with 9 points gathered in the league.

How are we shaping up?

Since suffering consecutive defeats in our last two away games before the season went into recess, the team has gone on to comprehensively win three practice matches and drawing one, scoring a whopping seventeen goals and conceding only five.

The boss – Arthur Kyesimira, who will be in charge of his first game this season will now look to ensure his charges improve our home form which has yielded only one point from two home league games so far. In the opening 5 league games, coach Arthur Kyesimira was serving a national call at the Uganda Cubs (U17 Uganda National Football Team) in Rwanda where they emerged champions.

Team news.

Deogracious Ojok returned to full fitness and the coach has almost full squad at his disposal apart from right back Peter Ozima who is nursing groin injury and Vitalis Tabu with swollen toe

“The team is in good shape. We don’t have any new injury in our squad. We have prepared very well – mentally and physically and ready to shoot down KCCA FC again and also subsequently crush any opponent that shall come in our way in the league,” said Assistant Coach Daniel Mubiru.

How about our home record against KCCA FC?

BUL FC has won two games out of the eight games since 2011. We have drawn three and lost three, scoring eight and conceding a similar number of goals in the process 

We won our last game against them 3-0 and the team will be looking forward to winning back to back home games against the yellow boys for the first time.

Head coach Arthur Kyesimira has confirmed that Fredson Gwoto is BUL FC’s new captain.

The 26year-old has been at the club since he joined from Admin FC in 2019, the coach said he will now lead the team out with immediate effect.

“Gwoto will be wearing the captain’s armband with effect from today. We thank the outgoing leadership of captain Dennis Okot Oola and Jimmy Kulaba for taking the club to where it is now but we felt the group needed a fresh breath in life.” Assistant coach Dan Mubiru stated after the evening training session.

Equally, Gwoto was quick to appreciate the trust coaches have put in him.

I know this hasn’t come by mistake but rather working hard and doing what coaches expect out of me. Being disciplined, respectful and God-fearing are the other aspects of my strength.”  Gwoto revealed.

Fredson will be deputised by Walter Ochora, Jimmy Kulaba and Tibita Hamisi as 2nd, 3rd and 4th team captains respectively.

This is not the first team Gwoto is captaining, but he is also the current skipper of Bukeddi Province team and he was Admin FC’s team captain before joining BUL FC.

BUL FC is in preparation for the recommencement of the Uganda Premier League
