Lweza football club return to action four days after the loss to rivals Vipers SC in the Entebbe road derby on Tuesday.

The orange brigade welcome Bright stars at Muteesa II stadium, approved Wankulukuku this Sunday with an aim to redeem themselves from the midweek loss.

Head coach, sickness Ibrahim Kiirya believes they have addressed the mistakes the team committed in the game against Vipers and are now fully focused to encounter Bright stars.

“We had mistakes in the game against Vipers but we have gone back to the drawing board and addressed them, so I believe we are in the right state to take on Bright stars,” he said.

Kiirya however, conceded it won’t be an easy encounter facing Bright stars who are rock solid at the back.

“It won’t be an easy game. Bright stars are not easy to break down but we have laid strategies on how to unlock them,” Kiirya indicated.

Bright stars on the other hand managed to pick a vital point against SC Villa and this will be a big boost going into Sunday’s game.

There are no major injury concerns for Fred Kajjoba’s side with right back Andrew Kaggwa who limped off in the game against SC Villa back in training.
