Preview: Stubborn Bright Stars Aiming To Hurt Tax Collectors

Bright Star will be seeking to continue with their good run against the big sides, at home, when they host URA FC at Kavumba.

They head into the URA game full of confidence having fought back to beat Express 2-1 in their last league game.

Bright Star’s Sam Ssekamatte will be the man to watch with the forward having a decent form this season.

On the other hand, URA will look no further than collecting all the three points.

Knowing that table leaders Vipers dropped all the three points to Express on Friday, URA will have no room for error as they will be seeking to leapfrog the Venoms at the top.

With everything in their favour to storm the league summit, this time round the Tax Collectors will blame themselves for failing to go to the top seat if they squander the chance.
