0

Express FC will hope to continue winning when they host Bul FC in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at the Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku.

The Red Eagles won the last game against Onduparaka and will hope to build on that when these two sides meet.

The hosts will need their forwards in Allan Kayiwa and Marvin Oshaba to be very sharp. They will be boosted by the return of Anwar Ntege.

Ahead of the game James Odoch was optimistic about his team working hard to take the win;

We are done with our training ahead of tomorrow’s game against Bul Fc. They’re on an unbeaten run and they are a good side.

We go into the game hoping to take all points to close the gap from the table Leaders. We have a few sick players but all the advantage is to us as we are home. We shall work hard to take the win.”

On the other hand, invincible BUL who have tried to tick almost all the boxes will fight tooth and nail to maintain their perfect start to the campaign.

BUL who have had a great defensive record this season Will once again look to their forward line of Karim Ndugwa, Jerome Kirya and Richard Wandyaka who all hold a total 10 goals this season.

Last game.

Both teams won their last game against the same opponent, Onduparaka Express edging it away from home 2-1 and BUL winning 1-0 at home.

What would a win do?

A win for Express would put them in third place in place of Arua Hill with only a point more of the Arua side while a win for BUL will help stretch lead at the top by 4 points.
