Preview: Giants seek to end winless Streak against inform Bul
Wakiso Giants will be targeting to return to winning Ways when they host inform Bul FC at Wakissha on Tuesday.
The Giants are yet to win any League game ever since their 1-0 victory against UPDF on December 11th last year. They have only managed to pick two draws and lost one in their last three league games.
Back at home, they host a high flying side in Bul FC that has been in great form this season and are currently third on the log.
They welcome a second high scoring side in Bul FC (24) and will need to be at their best if they are to pick a needed result at home.
However, the Purple Sharks will bank on the fact that they beat the same side on both league meetings last season, winning 1-0 away from home in Jinja and picked a 2-1 win at home.
On the other side, the Visitors will be targeting to extend their good run they have had since the start of this campaign.
Sitted in the third position, Bul have picked 25 points from 13 games and are now only 4points behind current table leaders Vipers SC.
They come off a 4-0 win at home against Arua Hill in a game that saw them end the year on a winning note.
Against Wakiso Giants, they face a side that beat them on both occassions and will all go out for revenge.
Ahead of the contest, Bul FC’s forward Martin Aprem is optimistic they will pick another maximum points on the road.
“We hope for maximum points, we have prepared well , have no injury scares and we need to win this one as well, he told the Club’s media.”
Having it in mind that a win against the Giants will see them leapfrog KCCA FC in the second position, Alex Isabirye’s men will have no room for error as they seek to remain in the title race this season.
Wakiso Giants currently sit in the sixth position with 21 Points collected from 13 games so far.
They have picked only one win in their last five league encounters. ( W1, D3, L1).
Bul FC are currently third on the UPL log with 25 points after 13 games played.
They are yet to lose any game in their last five league outings. (W3, D2).
