Preview – Onduparaka hoping to return to winning ways

Onduparaka, come into this game on the back of a 3-1 loss at home to Vipers SC last weekend.

That defeat was only their third of the campaign but second on the trot after also losing by the same score line, to Police FC on match-day nine.

The Caterpillars are usually hard to beat in Arua and having beaten Kyetume 3-1 on match-day eight, they will fancy their chances against Vipers.

The win against the Slaughters was their first and only one at the Green Light Stadium this campaign, having drawn all of the opening three fixtures there.

Starting the day in 8th, Onduparaka can climb as high as 5th with victory.

For BUL, they will be hoping to register their second successive victory after beating MYDA 3-1 last time out.

After a slow start that saw them win only two in nine, BUL are still on the hunt for points and head to Arua hoping for a good result.

After overcoming KCCA FC on match-day six, BUL went on to lose both of their next two encounters as they went down 2-0 at Police and 4-0 to Express FC before overcoming MYDA.

Those results put them in 12th spot with just 10 points from their opening 10 games.

Sitting just five points away from the drop zone is not an ideal situation for them and they know that they must start winning games so as to escape a potential dog-fight at the end of the campaign.

The Stats

This will be the 9th meeting between the two sides since December 2016.

In the previous eight, each has won twice with the other four all ending in draws.

This fixture has never produced an away victory with all four wins going to home sides.

Last season, BUL beat Onduparaka 4-0 in Jinja after the two sides had drawn 0-0 in Arua.

The draw ended Onduparaka’s two game winning run at home to BUL.
