Preview: Can MYDA get off the mark at home?

MYDA FC’s biggest undoing this season has been their worst home record. They have picked just two points from eight games at King George Stadium in Tororo.

They have not kept a clean sheet at home, and conceded three goals in each of their first four league games in Tororo.

They have slightly improved however, and return to Tororo where they beat Proline FC 3-1 in Uganda Cup.

The side, under new coach, will fancy their chances against a Bright Stars FC team that has blown hot and cold this season.

In the first round at Kavumba, MYDA led 2-0 but the Stars fought back to win 3-2 thanks to goals from Ronald Ssempala (2) and Ibrahim Kasinde.
