Bright Stars will be seeking to end their 5-game unbeaten run when they travel to Fort Portal to take on home side Tooro United FC at Buhinga Stadium on Thursday.
The two sides will be climaxing their 2018-19 Uganda Premier League season first round fixtures.
However, the spotlight will be shining brighter on visitors Bright Stars who are going through a patchy spell.
Fred Kajoba’s side has not won in their past five outings that has seen them lose two and draw three.
They last tasted victory on match day nine away from home against Paidha Black Angels.
They are coming at the backdrop of a goalless draw with Vipers SC last Saturday in Mwererwe.
Tooro United are however in winning moods. The Wasswa Bbosa coached side beat Ndejje University by 1-0 at Buhinga Stadium in their last immediate game courtesy of Allan Kayiwa’s lone goal. The latter has been a vital cog for Tooro United scoring as many goals.
Forward Simon Sserunkuma is expected to return after missing out the last two games. The adroit attacker is reportedly been in Vietnam undergoing trials.
Bright Stars, for their part, will seek inspiration ftom team captain Nelson Senkatuka, Brian Kayanja and Opejo Kokas to leave the encounter unscathed.
