SUPL: BUL FC take on Gaddafi in Jinja derby
Kyabazinga stadium will be the venue as BUL FC lock horns with neighbours Gaddafi FC in Uganda Premier League this Sunday.
The Eastern Giants make their first return to Kyabazinga stadium in more than three weeks, and this time they face locals Gaddafi who are in their early stage of topflight football.
Three positions and five points separate the two teams and they find themselves in completely contrasting situations.
BUL had to deal with their own setback in late October when they lost home to Express.
But, Alex Isabirye and company have not allowed that result to affect their performances henceforth as they made light work of Onduparaka, Mbarara City and SC Villa to beat them 2-0, 1-0 and 2-1 respectively in addition to drawing away to URA.
“It is going to be a tough one because Gaddafi has started winning games,” Isabirye said.
“Both teams are from the same area and almost close to each other, and players of both sides have practiced and played together for so long. Therefore, the game won’t be easy.”
“But, I emphasize that we are trying to build a competitive team. We are at home and we need the three points because we have been teaching our players on how to get them,” he added.
This is the first competitive but third meeting between the two teams, BUL FC boasts with a 1-0 win and a two all draw from their previous two friendly encounters.
Isabirye’s men have two victories to show from their three home league games and they are also unbeaten in their last four matches.
The Eastern Giants have scored nine goals in just six games this season, they have conceded only five.
