Startimes UPL: Unbeaten Bright stars visit hungry tax collectors


Bright Stars will visit URA FC at Nakisunga, Mukono on Wednesday as the Uganda Premier League Match day 5 returns.

The Kavumba side will continue to search for their first win of this campaign under Head coach Asaph Mwebaze after their previous game ending in a one-all draw.

Unlike the previous seasons at this stage, this is the first time Bright stars have had four consecutive draws in the first four games of the season.

Ahead of his first home game, Mwebaze says his team need to step up and manage the games better.

We were in a winning position against UPDF and we recklessly gave away that position in the last minutes of the game as we could have won but unfortunately we didn’t,”

We go into the game against URA hoping that we can do the things a bit better, faster and probably score more goals as we have been working on that the past week.

The Tax Collectors
The hosts on the other hand, will be on the same mission of collecting maximum points at home.

The Tax Collectors will be playing their 5th game of the season, as they seek to close the gap at the top.

Timbe’s men come into this one, off a comfortable 4-0 win over Busoga United in the previous match day 4 on Tuesday 18th.

URA, who have been inconsistent this season will have to forget all the past if they are to get back in the title race picture this season if they win this fixture.

Last game.

Bright stars drew 1-1 in their previous game with UPDF while URA won away at Busoga United.
