BUL have gone three league games without a won since beating up on Police 2-1. They drew with URA and Ndejje, losing to Tooro United in between the two draws.

Kirinya Jinja on the other hand, have won four of their five previous games, with KCCA loss the only dark spot in their previous five games.

What they said:

James Otim (BUL FC Player) – I am not scared of anything, I have ever played for Kirinya but this is a new chapter. The team is in good shape, and we are ready for the good game.

Peter Onen (BUL Coach) – It’s a normal preparation for the big game as we normally do in all our games. Its not that special, we are going to do basics.

Abbey Bogere (Kirinya Jinja Coach) – We are well prepared. Johnson Bagoole is out but we have good replacements like Joram Kirya and Zziwa Vincent. Its a crucial game, and we will be eyeing top five positions. Its a derby which non of us has ever won and I have told my Playerd not to play under pressure.

Joel Madondo (Kirinya Striker) – We are well prepared, the Coach has given us everything, I anticipate a good game, I expect to give 100%.
