AUPL: Struggling Sadolin Paints Seek Solace Against Bright Stars

Uganda Premier League
Sadolin Paints vs Bright stars
Mandela National stadium 4pm

Sadolin Paints find themselves in the relegation following a poor run since the start of the second round of the league.

The Painters have lost all the three games they have played in the league this year( 2-0 Police, case 2-0 Kirinya Jinja SS and 1-0 SC Villa) a run that saw them languish in 13th position on 17 points, just a point above the drop zone.

They take on Bright stars at Mandela National stadium on Saturday seeking to bounce back.

Head coach Peter Kirumira concedes the team is struggling and believes they need to recover early enough to avoid the relegation monster.

“It is true we have struggled since the start of the second round but we have gone back to the drawing board to make sure we return to winning ways,” he said.

“The pressure on us is evident because our position on the table is worrying and we need to start getting points before it’s too late.

Allan Oryek, Peter Katumba and Daniel Ekoyu who did not start against SC Villa are expected to return to the starting team.

On the other hand, Bright stars come into the clash on the back of a Uganda cup exit at the hands of neighbours Baza Holdings.

Fred Kajjoba’s charges have not lost a game in second round drawing twice (SC Villa 0-0 and Soana 1-1) and winning once against Lweza (2-1) and the stars are on a 6 unbeaten run in the league.

The two sides have met 5 times in the league with either side winning on two occasions while the other encounter ended in a stalemate.
