JINJA – Bul FC will host URA at the Njeru Technical Center in Jinja as the StarTimes Uganda Premier League enters into week 7.

Peter Onen’s side are flying high at the moment having won a league-high four games (level with Vipers) this season and sitting in second on the log.

Two of the four Jinja-based side’s victories have come at home, defeating Paidah Black Angels 3-0 and then thumping Ndejje 4-1 on Saturday afternoon. However, their only loss this season has also come at Njeru, when Tooro United came calling and walked away with all three points on match day two.

Onen will be banking on midfielder Daniel Shabena and vice-captain Hamis Tibita to inflict the necessary damage onto URA. The duo have each scored three goals this season with Shabena finding the back of the net twice on Saturday.

For URA, they come into Tuesday’s game still unbeaten in the league and sitting 8th on the log.

The Tax Collectors have drawn a league-high four games this season including the 0-0 draw at home to Nyamityobora on Friday.

Coming up against a Bul side that has scored seven goals in three league home games will have to worry URA who have fired blanks in their last two games.
