0

Bright Stars will be targeting their fifth win of the season when they host a flying KCCA FC side that is currently on top of the UPL log.

Morley Byekwaso’s charges are still unbeaten in their last nine games after loss to Maroons FC and Arua Hill in the process early this season.

And now they face a Bright stars side that has won four of their last six games and currently sit eighth on the log.

However, despite KCCA’s good run, Bright Stars head coach Asaph Mwebaze is optimistic that they can get three points on Tuesday.

“Yes we definitely respect KCCA, they are top of the League and perennially challenging for the title but we have tried to play very well this season ,” Mwebaze stated.

“We try to be compact and definitely think we do have a chance although the last two games haven’t given us positive results but winning will give us 20 points, are good thing for a team like ours.”

For KCCA side, they will need to be at their best and utilise all the available chances if they are to get any positive result in the game.

On the other hand, the visitors will only have to continue on their run in order to have a chance against the home team

However despite the bright first half into the season, Byekwaso anticipates a tough contest, and urges his team to have team work .

“We need to have the team work we have had all season so far. If we can go there and dominate them and create chances than we can pick a positive result on the road..”
