Preview: Struggling Tooro United Seeking Resuscitation

Tooro United will be in search for a positive result when they welcome on-form BUL FC at Buhinga Stadium in the tourism city of Fort Portal.

The Club has lost their last seven league games and the streak doesn’t look like it will end any soon.

Financial constraints at the club will be blamed for the poor run of form at the club currently.

And on Wednesday, Tooro United players hit the streets to solicit funds from any well-wisher.

They collected approximately Sh300,000 which they shared amongst themselves. That is the current situation at the club.

It’s a big workload for Coach Edward Golola to turn things around at the club, but close sources say that the gaffer might be gone even before Christmas if the conditions persist.

The same cannot be said of BUL FC who are in a good form of their lives having beaten Busoga United, putting their neighbours to the sword in a 5-0 win on Tuesday to move third.

Coach Alex Isabirye however predicted a tough encounter.

“Its going to be a tough game for us, Tooro United have lost a couple but such teams tend to get back and fight when things are not going their way.

“Being on a bad run does not directly indicate that they are a bad team. We expect them to give us a big challenge but like I always keep telling you, we are here to compete and my boys will come out with maximum points.”

The Stats

Tooro United

  • Sit second from the bottom with 4 points from 9 games (1W, 1D, 7L)
  • They have let in 23 goals, the highest any club has conceded this season so far.

BUL FC

  • The Eastern giants are third with 17 points from 9 games (5W, 2D, 2L)
  • Only URA, KCCA and Vipers have scored more goals than BUL’s 16
  • They have lost once (Vs KCCA) in their four away games this season.

The Meetings

  • The last meeting was in October 2019 when BUL came from down to win 2-1 at St Paul Major Seminary Playground in Fort Portal. Yafeesi Mubiru scored for Tooro but Musa Esenu and Robert Mukongotya led the visitors’ comeback.
