Ssekamatte in spotlight as Arua Hill visit off color Bright Stars

Soltilo Bright Stars host Arua Hill at Kavumba in a bid to arrest their poor start to this season.

Bright Stars have only managed one win so far and sit 14th on the table having collected only five points from the nine games played.

Arua Hill come into the game while sitting 7th with 13 points. They will be searching for their fifth win of the season so as to move to the 5th place.

Bright Stars have lost their last two games 2-1 to UPDF FC and 4-2 to Wakiso Giants.

Arua Hill won their recent game 3-1 over Tooro United courtesy of goals from Alfred Leku, Sam Ssekamatte and South Sudan international Innocent Media.

Ssekamatte will be facing his immediate former paymasters having left Bright Stars to join the Arua based club at the start of the season.

He was arguably the best player for Bright Stars last season after scoring 12 goals and helped them finish 5th.

Team News

Bright Stars will be without defender Warren Buule who is injured. James Angu is ruled out by school engagements.

Japanese midfielder Kazuto Kushida and defender Derrick Ngobi return after missing the previous game against UPDF.

Arua Hill will miss their striker Leku and right back Joseph Vuni who are currently with the Cranes in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Innocent Maduka and goalkeeper Richard are injured while Robert Eseru is ruled out by fever.

A win for Bright Stars will automatically lift them from the bottom three.
