Bright Stars will be targeting maximum points when they take on struggling newcomers Kitara FC at Kavumba Recreational ground.

The hosts, after a poor start that saw them pick one point from the opening three games, beat MYDA and held Wakiso Giants before the league went for a break.

They sit 12th with five points from as many games and will fancy their chances on Saturday.

Kitara FC on the other hand, will be playing at a familiar ground, given that they host games at the same venue.

After their 1-1 draw with Kyetume in their first ever top flight game, the side has gone into a deep slumber – losing the next four games including conceding five against UPDF and Police in a row.

They have scored four goals in five and the departure of their main striker Brian Mululi provides more selection headache for coach Tony Ssekito whose side is rooted at the foot of the log.
