-Bright Stars vs URA FC
-Onduparaka FC vs Police FC
-Kirinya JSS vs Bul FC
The StarTimes Uganda Premier League will continue on Sunday afternoon with three games.
In Mwerere, Bright Stars will take on URA FC at the Champions Stadium.
In their previous games, Bright Stars lost 1-0 away to Police FC while URA drew 0-0 at Mbarara City.
Before the loss to Police on Wednesday, Bright Stars were on a stroll of sorts, winning three and drawing as many in their previous six games, a run of results that saw them climb as high as fourth.
Fred Kajoba’s side have not lost a League game in Mwerere this campaign, winning two and drawing three of their five fixtures.
For URA, despite being one of only two teams yet to taste defeat this season, the Tax Collectors have consistently punched below their weight with most of the games ending in draws.
Sam Simbwa’s side has drawn League high 8 games including all of their last 6.
The problem has clearly been scoring goals as the Tax Collectors have managed to find the back of the net on a joint league low of 5 occasions (only level with Paidah). They have also missed two penalties already, more than any other side in the division.
Away from home, URA has drawn all their five games on the road, scoring two goals and conceding as many in the process.
This will be the 11th top flight meeting between the two sides with URA winning four and losing only one of the other 10. The Tax Collectors’ only loss in this fixture was the 1-0 defeat in the reverse game last season.
Elsewhere, Onduparaka FC will host a revamped Police side who are riding high on confidence.
After losing their first three games of the season, Abdallah Mubiru’s side have made a remarkable turnaround that has seen them lose only one of their last 8 games whilst winning 5.
In the other game of the day, Kirinya JSS will host Bul at the Mighty Arena in Jinja.
The two Jinja based sides who currently contest in the ‘Jinja Derby’ have been performing decently so far this season and currently sit mid table with 18 (Bul) and 17 points (Kirinya).
In their last games, Bul defeated Onduparaka 1-0 while Kirinya overcame Paidah with the same score line away from home.
Sunday’s fixture will be fifth meeting between the two sides in the top flight with none of them winning any of the first 4.
The reverse fixture last season ended 1-1.
