Mbarara City FC welcome Bright Stars at Kakyeka Stadium in one of the five StarTimes Uganda Premier League games on Saturday.

The game will be played behind closed doors after Mbarara were fined by FUFA for allowing in fans at Kakyeka Stadium without consent in the league game against Vipers.

The Ankole Lions have had a week of mixed emotions, breaking SC Vipers unbeaten run before falling to Onduparaka.

Kitegenyi, who scored the all important goal against Vipers is suspended.

Against Onduparaka, its a game that left a bitter test to Mbarara after complaints about poor officiating in the lead up to Livin Kabon’s penalty.

They return at Kakyeka where they have won their last two games and will fancy their chances to make it three in a row.

Sadiq Ssempigi is expected to remain on the touchline as the club finalise final touches with Livingston Mbabazi.

The visitors on the other hand, despite an impressive start to the league season, they have lost three in a row (BUL, Onduparaka and Vipers).

To make matters worse, they are yet to win a game on the road – drawn four and lost twice.

Its one of those trips that Bright Stars will be happy for a point.
