Bright Stars Vs Police FC

Champions Stadium, Mwerere

Friday @4:30pm

MWERERE – On form Pollice FC are away to Mwererwe based side Bright Stars FC at the the Champions Stadium in one of the two Uganda Premier League games on Friday.

The two sides come into the game on the back of wins; Bright Stars won a big one against URA 1-0 at Namboole thanks to a goal by skipper Nelson Senkatuka while a Juma Balinya double helped Police edge boggy side Onduparaka 2-1 at Lugogo.

With the two games between the two sides ending in stalemates last season, Bright Stars will be eager to put one over the Cops.

What the players say:

Juma Balinya (PoliceFC).

“We’ve trained well and put behind us, the onduparaka’s victory. So we are focusing on tomorrow’s game and more than ready.”

Nelson Senkatuka (Bright Stars).

“We are prepared for it just like any other game.”

“There are no big ones or small ones in this league. Every team can turn up and put up a fight on any day so we will approach the game as we always do to try and win, especially that we are at home.”

Team news

Police has only one injury concern as Ruben Kimera is a doubt but other players are all fine ready for tomorrow’s game.

Abudallah Mubiru will have top scorer Juma Balinya to look up to for a win at home.

Fred Kajoba has no injured players and is ready to revenge because he lost the first encounter to Police earlier in the season.

He will have captain Nelson Senkatuka to back on for inspiration.
