Preview: Bright Stars Target Double Over Kitara
Bright Stars will be targeting a league double over Kitara when they start the second round of the Uganda Premier League.
The Stars won the reverse fixture 5-0 in the first round thanks to an hat-trick from Joseph Akandwanaho and Marvin Joseph Ssemayange brace.
Both sides host at Kavumba and visiting Bright Stars will play with confidence given that they will be playing on a familiar ground.
The Stars form deteriorated as the season progressed, and eventually managed just win in their last five games.
Whether they have utilised the break accordingly will show in their first second round game.
