Bright Stars vs Kirinya Jinja, 4 PM
Bright Stars will play host to Kirinya Jinja SS in the Uganda Premier League encounter at Champions Stadium, Mwererwe in Matugga.
The hosts will hope that history repeats itself as they play the school boys.
This will be the fifth meeting between the sides in the top flight – Bright Stars are yet to lose against Kirinya in the league.
In the four occasions, Bright Stars have won twice and drawn as many games against Kirinya.
Both wins came last season when they beat up on Kirinya home and away.
This season, Bright Stars are seventh on the log with eight points and they can climb up to second with victory if the other results can go their way.
Kirinya on the other hand, have collected six points from five games and the team will leapfrog Bright Stars on the log with a win.
Kirinya come into the game in buoyant moods after coming from a goal down on two occasions to draw with Vipers in Jinja – The school boys ended the game a man down.
He is back. Ready for duty.
