Preview – Bbosa Expresses Confidence

Wasswa Bbosa targets nothing but victory against Bright Stars in is first home game of the 2020/21 campaign.

On match-day One against Onduparaka, the Red Eagles were on their way for maximum points before a Walusimbi red card which was followed by Living Kabon penalty.

“We are ready for the game, we had a whole week to correct our mistakes to see that we can score and defend as well,” Bbosa said on Friday.

“Bright Stsrs are a good team, and we give them respect but we are home and we want to win.”

Bbosa was not bothered by the absence of Walusimbi among others, saying that they added 30 new players hence have enough to fill the void.

The club, after missing Match-day two against Vipers, will come into the game having rested extra days in comparison to Bright Stars.

The visitors lost their opener at home to KCCA, in a game they should have salvaged a point after misses in the closing stages.

Against URA, Bright Stars defended well and managed to pick a deserved point.

They face a stern test against a new-looking Express side who have set their targets on winning the league title.
