Preview – Another Draw For The Sharks?
Wakiso Giants are slowly writing unwanted history since the campaign started and there is no indication that they are stopping soon.
The Purple Sharks have drawn nine out of their opening 11 games of the season and will be hoping there is no 10th (draw) when they take on BUL on Saturday.
The only two games that have not ended in draws are the 1-0 win at Mbarara City and the 3-0 loss to Express FC.
These results have put head coach Douglas Bamweyana under pressure and he knows that they must improve so as jot to become a fourth full-time coach to lose his job at Wakiso in the last two years.
Wakiso will start the day in 11th spot with 12 points and are hoping to erase the memories of the 2-2 draw at home to lowly MYDA this past Wednesday.
For BUL, they have not written their name in glory either, this season.
The Jinja based side have been struggling too as they have won only four games so far and lost as many as six.
Sitting just a point and spot above Wakiso, Arthur Kyesimira’s side know that they must start gathering points steadily to climb up the table and run away from a possible dog-fight to fend off relegation fears.
The victory away to Onduparaka FC last time out must have lifted their spirits after going on a four game losing streak prior to that.
This will be the third meeting between the two sides in history.
The first two meetings saw BUL collect four points of Waksio, last season including a 0-0 draw when they last faced off in Jinja.
