Preview – Busoga Out To Continue Fine Run Against Purple Sharks

Busoga United have enjoyed their past two games against Wakiso Giants and will be hoping for more of the same on Tuesday.

The Students are currently on a two-game winning run against the Purple Sharks having defeated them early in the season and late last campaign.

The hosts must be feeling confident going into the encounter as they are currently on a three-match unbeaten run (W1 D2).

The two draws in that run have both come in their last two games including a 2-2 draw away to Kitara FC last time out in a game that saw Busoga concede late to throw away two points.

Currently in 12th with 25 points, Busoga are just five points away from the relegation zone and know they need to win more games to move clear of a potential relegation scrap, late in the season.

For Wakiso, they have sort of found their groove of late after a poor start to the campaign.

Douglas Bamweyana’s side have lost just one of their past seven competitive games (W5 D1).

In the league, they have won four, drawn one and lost once in the past five outings.

Coming off a 5-1 thrashing of UPDF last time out, Wakiso will be feeling hot against the Students on Tuesday.

Before a kick of the ball on match-day 23, Wakiso sit in 9th with 26 points.

Match Stats

This will be the 4th meeting between the two sides since the first back in November 2019.

Busoga have had the edge in the first three meetings, winning twice and losing the other.

Last season, either side won their respective home fixture with the one at Njeru ending 1-0 in favour of the Students.

Earlier this season, Busoga defeated Wakiso by the same score line at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium.
