By: David Gombe
Kirinya Jinja SS will face off against neighbors BUL FC in a duel dubbed the Jinja derby. Kirinya is the inform team after having managed to collect 4 points from their opening two fixtures while their neighbors have not won a match, neither have they managed to score a goal this term.
Kirinya come into this encounter on a high not after a remarkable 1-0 win over the tax collectors URA Fc on match day 2 on Saturday last week thanks to a Isaac Ntege free kick, whereas Kefa Kisala’s BUL FC are short of confidence after suffering a 1-0 loss to Vipers Sc on Friday last week.
Charles Ayiekoh’s side will miss the services of playmaker Mutanda Bashir alongside Mugoya Mustafa, Sabir Nest and Allan Drajua.
Amaku Fred who has missed the opening two games returns after getting his passport.
Tactician Charles Ayiekoh will put his trust in loanees Ibrahim Kayiwa who joined from Vipers and Musa Esenu to make things happen for them in front of their home fans.
BUL Fc have a clean health bill coming into this game with no players on the sidelines, this means that Kefa Kisala is spoilt for choice.
He will however look at forward Patrick Asiku and Daniel Shabena to find the back of the net for BUL Fc for the first time this season, having failed to find 1 for over 180 minutes.
The two neighbors played to goalless draws at Bugembe and Kakindu respectively, this time around both sides are expected to turn this around after strengthening tremendously in the transfer window.
