The Purple Sharks come into this game after suffering a 1-0 defeat to Express FC last week at Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku.

Bright Stars on the other hand cruised to their first win of the season with a narrow victory over struggling Tooro United at Kavumba Recreation grounds.

The hosts have won two and lost once in the three games they have hosted this term whereas Brights Stars have only managed a draw in their three visits this season, losing the other two.
