Soltilo Bright Stars drew 2-2 with Police FC in their most recent game.
Fred Kajoba will receive a boast of Halid Lwaliwa and Siraje Ssentamu who return from injury after missing the trip to Onduparaka while Abraham Ndugwa and Milton Karisa are still out of action.
Orit, Mucurezi together with striker Yunus Sentamu will be expected to be key in inflicting damage to the visiting side.
