StarTimes Uganda Premier League
Maroons Vs Bright Stars
Prisons Grounds Luzira
@4: 30 pm.
LUZIRA – On Tuesday, Maroons FC play host to Bright Stars at the Prisons Grounds, Luzira in one of the five StarTimes Uganda Premier League games.
With 22 points from as many matches, Maroons is not yet safe from relegation, a battle that involves all the three new clubs in the league, Paidha Black Angels, Nyamityobora and Ndejje University.
The visitors on the evening, will kick off the game with 6 points advantage over Maroons and would also need maximum points to further ensure safety.
Brian Majwega, Pius Obuya, Solomon Walusimbi, Maxwell Okello, Bronson Nsubuga, Ronald Orombi, Emmanuel Olinga, Felix Okot, defender Martin Mpuuga, and striker Isaac Otto will be some of the lads looked unto to inspire the home team.
Abbey Mutyaba, another Uganda Cranes new face will rest out the match after successfully recovering from an earlier knock that saw him miss the away defeat to Onduparaka.
Bright Stars, as usual, will be led by their captain Nelson Senkatuka. Senkatuka has steady and assured support from John Ssebadukka, Alfred Onek, and Brian Kayanja.
Brian Enzama and Augustine Kacancu have of late formed a deadly midfield partnership that many clubs have struggled to crack. Derrick Ngobi, the experienced left-back Samuel Ssekitto, and the all-rounder Sula Ssebunza are also other important players for Bright Stars.
Maroons are 13th with 22 points while Bright Stars is 11th with only 28 points.
Bright Stars won the first encounter 1-0 at the champions Stadium in Mwererwe.
