BUL Bidco FC assistant coach Dan Mubiru says it will be incredible to have some fans back in the stadium for their home game against URA FC at the Kyabazinga Stadium in Bugembe on Tuesday.
StarTimes Uganda Premier League clubs were allowed to have up to 200 fans for games, after getting clearance from FUFA and provided there is enough social distancing.
“It will surely be a different atmosphere when the fans are around and pushing the boys,” Mubiru said during his press conference.
“It has been a bot different without them so it is incredible to have some of them back.”
“Obviously, it has been long without football and then without fans, so we welcome them back to witness what we have been preparing all along,” he added.
BUL FC has played three games this season drawing against SC Villa, defeating Busoga United in the Jinja derby but disappointingly losing away to UPDF last Saturday.
BUL who currently lie sixth on the log will back themselves on the form of Joseph Ssemujju who has had an impressive start to the season, scoring four goals in three games including a treble against Busoga
“We are done with our preparation the team is in good shape,” Mubiru said, adding; “We are ready to give in our best so that we succeed in tomorrow’s engagement.”
On the other hand, URA FC will once again be with some of their starting players from injury for their trip to Bugembe.
Captain Shafiq Kagimu and striker Juma Dada have made the travelling squad. But coach Sam Ssimbwa will continue to be without Patrick Mbowa, Hassan Kalega, Cromwell Rwothomio, and Jackson Nunda.
URA lies fourth on the log, they are still unbeaten but have drawn two of their opening three games against Mbarara and Bright Stars before securing their first victory of the season against Villa on Saturday.
This fixture has produced a worrying number of draws, with only eight victories registered in 16 games since 2012.
