Competition: Uganda Premier League
Game week: 27
Date: MYDA FC Vs BUL FC
Venue: King George IV Stadium, Tororo
Kick Off: 4:00pm
It’s exactly 3 weeks since BUL Football Club last played a league game before switching to Stanbic Uganda Cup and then international break.
It’s either an advantage in disguise for Alex Isabirye’s men to take chance and beat Malaba relegation-bound side, MYDA FC with flesh legs or maintain their bottom redline fight on.
BUL FC did beat MYDA 4-1 in Bugembe at Kyabazinga stadium and they will need to replicate the same performance if they’re to complete a double against them in Tororo.
Coach Alex’s team is motivated.
Well, from a 3day retreat in Lugazi as his inaugural training session to let him learn players behaviour further to traveling two days prior to match-days for all our distant matches like in Masindi (verses Kitara), Kabale (in Uganda Cup vs Kigezi Home Boys) now to Tororo but most importantly to note is the latest outing where they treated all players to an outing away in Busowoko falls on the Nile just to change their usual living environment. That’s him (Alex Isabirye). But, I mean what happens in Hollywood…remains in Hollywood
In the sickbay remains the two longtime absentees in Ambrose Kirya and Hamis Tibita (both with knee discomforts).
While Robert Mukongotya and Dennis Okot Oola are just returning having sustained injuries during Uganda Cup game against Kigezi Home Boys and they did not travel to Malaba.
Key match facts
- This would be the second competitive match between the two sides. The visitors won 4-1 in first round

- The visitors BUL FC have at least scored a goal or so in any of their previous five games away in all competition.
- This is Alex Isabirye’s 10th game in charge in all competitions. (W4, D2, L3)
What he said:
“Am optimistic we shall perform better in our game against MYDA FC. Yes,we beat them 4-1 at home but they’re a changed side in second round.”
“Now they would lose a game but not so easily like it used to be in the first round. They put up a fight to give opponent value for money.”
“They’re dangerous team now since they have nothing to lose or fight for. But I have warned my players as well.” Alex Isabirye
