SUPL: BUL FC aims at returning to winning ways as they take on Tooro United

2 min read

BUL FC will be at Kyabazinga stadium in Bugembe when they host Tooro United on Friday afternoon.

The Eastern Giants head into this fixture on the back of a disappointing 3-0 defeat to Bright Stars last time out, but the Eastern Giants have not registered successive losses this campaign.

Alex Isabirye’s men have put up a splendid show this season, currently occupying the fifth place after posting nine wins, six draws and five losses to count 33 points from 20 matches.

They are desperate to reclaim the fourth spot after being leapfrogged by Arua Hill SC who won their match day 21 game on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Ibrahim Kirya’s men have won the fewest top-flight games (three), and their 14 defeats is the highest in the league.

They went down 4-2 to Police in their last trip in the league but won an important game last Friday.

Shock victory at home to league leaders Vipers SC could have provided Tooro with a serious dose of momentum, but they have not been helped by their three wins and three draws as they still remain at the UPL log base with just 12 points from 20 outings.

This encounter will be the 15th meeting between the two teams since 2013.

The game will not be easy because playing a team fighting relegation sometimes is hard. They won against table leaders Vipers SC in their last game but we are at home and we need the three points,” BUL FC head coach Alex Isabirye said.

BUL FC have won six games, drawn and lost two a piece in 10 home matches this campaign.

They have seen a return of 21 goals and seven only conceded across those games.
