Bright Stars will be seeking for their first win of the 2019/20 StarTimes UPL when they play host to Tooro United at Betway Muteesa II Stadium at Wankulukuku.

The hosts are in 14th place, inside the relegation zone, with four points from their seven league games.

It promises to be a long season for Bright Stars if we are to go with their poor start but a win against Tooro on Tuesday may be the start of something good.

Mohammed Kisekka’s charges will feel hard done by the officials that handled their 1-1 draw against KCCA at Lugogo after denying them a genuine goal after the ball protruded through a torn net.

However, they put up a commendable and spirited performance against a respected Mike Mutebi side but whether they can replicate the same against Tooro, remains to be seen.

Joseph Janjali will continue to be the team’s source for goals but Alfred Onek, Ronald Ssempala among others are expected to reduce on that burden as well.

The visitors on the other hand, have blown hot and cold this season. From beating KCCA to losing to minnows Kyetume at home needs a PhD explanation from coach Wasswa Bbosa.

Tooro will be playing at a familiar ground – Wankulukuku – where they hosted their first two league games this season against Busoga United (2-1) and Maroons (0-2) and will seek to benefit from this advantage as well.

They have collected nine points but have lost games which they could have won including the above against Kyetume and against ten man Vipers where they could have got a point at least.

The car dealers have enough quality to negotiate past Bright Stars including Godfrey Lwesibawa, Charles Musiige, Steven Luswata among others but their players have blown hot and cold this season.

Last season, Bright Stars held Tooro United to a goalless draw but the latter won 2-0 at their home ground.
