Preview: Bright Stars Target Third Consecutive Home Win

Bright Stars are gearing up to face SC Villa in their tenth match, aiming for a third consecutive home victory at Kavumba.

Fresh from a resounding 3-0 win against Arua Hill in their previous home game, Bright Stars are riding high on confidence.

They’re unbeaten in their last four matches, securing two wins at home against Busoga United and Arua Hill, alongside two away draws with Gaddafi and Mbarara City.

Their recent unbeaten streak propelled them from the red zone to the 9th position with ten points, trailing just two points behind 7th placed Villa.

A win could elevate Joseph Mutyaba’s side to sixth spot.

Despite their solid form, Bright Stars are yet to keep a clean sheet at home, and memories of Charles Bale’s strike haunting them from last season add extra motivation for revenge.

Coach Mutyaba is banking on home advantage and hopes the referees remain unbiased, expressing concerns about the potential influence of Villa’s passionate fans on the match officials’ decisions.

On the other hand, SC Villa is seeking their first away win of the season after drawing all their previous away fixtures against Maroons, Vipers, and Mbarara City.

While they clinched a 2-1 victory against Busoga United in their recent match, their inconsistency this season has hampered their push for the title.

The upcoming clash will mark the 21st encounter between the two sides, with Villa claiming eleven victories and Bright Stars securing only three wins in their previous twenty meetings.
