One certainty in any Azam Uganda Premier league season is that the three bottom placed clubs will be relegated to the Big League. Any team struggling to reach at least the 35 point mark that supposedly ensures safety ( Proline have done) faces a tense final few games that are destined to end in tears for their supporters, players and management, With the replacements already confirmed after Mbarara city joined Maroons and Masavu on Sunday 7th, May 2017, its inevitable that some 3 teams have to create room for them.
With JMC Hippos already having confirmed relegation, SWIFT SPORTS analysts have managed to put all the teams that are liable for possible relegation on the scale.
Just like SC Villa, Bright Stars have played a game more than others and have 2 left. Despite sitting 9th on the log, the Matugga based club is still uncertain with 31 points and have not won a match since February.
They have played a set of consecutive draws in the last 4 games making them the team with most draws in the league. They sit only 5 points above Sadolin Paints but have their destiny in their hands. A tie against URA in Lugazi and their last game against JMC Hippos at home should yield some points for them.
In this pivotal moment, Fred Kajoba’s men will not only rely on their defense but also on striker Fred Segujja, goalkeeper Nicholas Sebwato, John Opejo Kokas, Victor Aweko, Seif Bate, Joshua Kawadwa and former Express forward Yafesi Mubiru.
