Kitara vs Bright Stars FC

4pm

Masindi stadium

We return at home for the first time this new year 2024 to face Bright Stars FC this evening in final game of the first round of the StarTimes Uganda premier league.

Kitara comes into this clash after registering their fourth loss of the season away at Busoga United and will be targeting to maintain their home form.

 

The last fixture at the Masindi stadium involved the hosts thrashing Arua Hill 7-1. If they can replicate that form this evening is what the fans will be hoping to see.

On the other hand Bright Stars beat Maroons FC 1-0 at Kavumba Recreation grounds and will be keen to upset their hosts when the two sides meet.

 

The win was the visitors first over the top half placed teams. Their other three victories came at home and against Busoga United, UPDF and Arua Hill who are 13th, 15th, and 16th respectively hence it will be an uphill task to get maximum points off third placed Royals at the Masindi stadium.

Bright Stars is yet to win a game away from home; here’s how they have fared in their last four matches.

 

NEC 0-0 Bright Stars

KCCA 3-1Bright Stars

Gaddafi 2-2 Bright Stars

Mbarara City 1-1 Bright Stars

Meanwhile the Royals have been solid at home since their 1-0 defeat to Maroons. They have since gone ahead to win all the subsequent matches.

Kitara last 3 home matches:

Kitara 7-1 Arua Hill

Kitara 1-0 Express 

Kitara 1-0 NEC

 

Should Kitara go on to win, they will finish the first round of the league among the top three a target they set at the start of the campaign.

Team news:

All players are available except for goal keeper Jamil Kiyimba and Benjamin Nyakoojo who are recovering from injury.
