Preview: BUL Fancy Chances In Jinja Derby
BUL will hope to pick maximum points when they welcome Gaddafi FC in Njeru in the Uganda Premier League.
The two Busoga region sides shared spoils in the first round fixture – Ibrahim Kazindula’s goal for BUL was canceled out by Bakari Magumba as the game ended 1-1.
The hosts will be targeting return to winning ways after a 1-0 away defeat to SC Villa.
The defeat was very damaging as Villa moved five points above in second place.
“We started the second round badly, we even lost our last league game to SC Villa in Lira. But we have tried to correct the mistakes we did in the previous matches,” BUL coach Simeone Masaba said.
“We have also prepared the boys very well to see that they can play this game brightly.“
“Of course we know it’s a derby game, anything can happen and we come expecting the intensity of the game to be high but we are going to try to control the game so as to have it in our favor.”
Gaddafi on the other hand, were held to a goalless against Express on March 19 at Kakindu Stadium.
And a win can send Gaddafi to as high as fifth place, a manifest of how tight this season’s League.
