Tuesday April 5, 2016 Bul Vs Express – Kakindu @ 4.30pm
Bul are enduring a difficult moment after the suspension (forced sick leave) of head coach Alex Isabirye and the absence of goalkeeping coach Bright Dhaira who is mourning the death of his son Abel Dhaira.
The self-proclaimed ‘Eastern giants’ fatally lost their last two games conceding eight goals. On Friday, the team under assistant coach David Kiwanuka were thoroughly punished 5-2 away to Soana in Kavumba dropping to twelfth on the league standings.
“We are not in any kind of crisis because every team has bad and good times,” remarked Kiwanuka ahead of Express visit who are in blistering form. “We are rectifying the problem and are positive that the results will change,” he explained to upl.co.ug.
Statistics show that coach Wasswa Boss’s side have been the most impressive team in the last five fixtures, considering they have won four games while the hosts have a single victory.
However coach Bbosa is wary of playing Jinja sides away from home after losing to Sadolin and JMC Hippos away.
“I have lost two matches in Jinja this season – against Sadolin in Bugembe and recently in Kakindu against council (JMC Hippos),” he said. “In both, we failed to score but now we hope for better results tomorrow (Tuesday) he remarked.
The previous meeting between these two sides saw Express humble Bul 4-0 in Wankulukuku with goals from Ibrahim Kayiwa, Ceaser Okhuti and a brace by Emma Kalyowa. Okhuti has since joined KCCA and Kalyowa left for Lweza.
Bul will miss the services of forward John Wakalaita who twisted his right ankle in training while Keeper Emma Kalyowa will wait for a late fitness test. Simon Sserunkuma won’t be available for the visitors.
The visitors will be boosted by the fact they have not lost a match to Bul at Kakindu; drawing the last three and winning one.
