Off color BUL endure worst winless run in 10 years


Proline FC condemned BUL FC to their eighth defeat of the season thanks to Mustafa Mujuzi’s penalty and a brace from youngster Rogers Mato.

Winger Joseph Semujju had scored inside the opening minute to give BUL and new coach Arthur Kyesimira hope of a positive result.

The result stretched the winless streak of the Jinja outfit to nine league games and 10 in all competitions.

The past nine league games have seen BUL suffer six defeats managing only three draws, a record that leaves them seventh on the UPL table.

In fact, BUL FC are the only club in the league that haven’t won any game in the second half of season. Unappealing for a side that virtually rubbed shoulders with the title contenders in the opening half.

The gradual slump in performance of the club saw Peter Onen fired from the head coach role soon after the disappointing exit from the Uganda Cup at the hands of Mvara Boys in Arua mid way last month.

The insignificant winless streak is the worst BUL have endured since they gained top-flight promotion in 2011.

In their debut season and 2012-13, BUL FC went eight games without registering any victory.

BUL will hope to bury the unwanted record when they take on SC Villa in their next game on Sunday 23rd at Njeru.

Their tormentors Proline will also continue with their survival charge when they take on Bright Stars in a relegation six-pointer on Saturday.

Proline are sitting bottom of the table with 18 points accumulated after 22 games.
