Having won their previous three games, Maroons FC will be out hunting for their fourth consecutive league win when they visit BUL FC at FUFA Technical Center, Njeru on Tuesday, in the 2019/2020 Star Times Uganda Premier League.
This will be the seventh league meeting in the top flight between BUL and Maroons. The hosts hold the upper hand in the fixture, after winning five of the previous six meetings between the two, with Maroons’ only win in the fixture coming in 2012.
It is a pretty close game to call, as both sides are enjoying quite a good run of form, with the hosts lying fourth on the log, after winning three and losing just one of their four league games so far, that includes a 1-0 victory over Wakiso Giants in their last league game.
The visitors are on an even more impressive run. Since their 3-0 loss against URA on the opening day of the season, Maroons have since won their next three games on the bounce, lying a surprising third on the log.
Douglas Bamweyana has been responsible for turning around Maroon’s fortunes, despite being unfancied before the start of the season.
But the partnership of Rashid Agau and Steven Mukwala has been as instrumental for the Prisons side. The pair have scored four of the six goals Maroons have scored this season, with each finding the back of the net twice in four appearances.
They must come to the fore if they are to condemn BUL to their second home loss of the season.
BUL have scored four goals and just conceded three, with Deogracious Ojok bagging two goals so far while Walter Ochora has chipped in with one. The pair will be at the fore once again for Peter Onen’s team.
Can Maroons end BUL dominance in the fixture
It will surely be a mouth-watering tie between the two sides with the fact that they’ve all had a vibrant and colourful start to the 2019/2020 Star Times Uganda Premier League and none of them would wish to go off track this early.
But still, the hosts hold an upper hand in this one having come out on top in five out of the six encounters between the two. Playing at home, a ground they are yet to lose to Maroons at since April 2012.
