Bright Stars will visit the league reigning champions Vipers on Friday, February 22 at St Mary's Stadium in Kitende.
The two sides played to a goalless draw during the first round encounter at the Champions Stadium in Mwererwe.
Coming to the match proper, Bright Stars had just earned a hard-fought 2-1 win on the road away to URA at Namboole Stadium during the Uganda Cup contest.
However, in the league, Fred Kajoba’s side remains winless in approximately nine matches.
Vipers themselves had had their own tale to tell, being held in their last game during their one all draw stalemate away at the Buhinga against Tooro United last week.
Therefore, the urge for maximum points from any of the two clubs in contention will be a key priority.
Vipers is still in serious competition with KCCA for the top spot and maximum points on the evening will see them close the gap to just four points.
Bright Stars on the other hand, eyes the 8th place with maximum points at Kitende.
The defending champions have a strong squad since many of the experienced players such as Dan Sserunkuma, Tom Masiko, Moses Waiswa, the Burundian duo of right back Abdul Karim Nizigiyimana and goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora, tricky forward Abraham Ndugwa, Yaya Lutimba, Geofrey Wasswa, Tadeo Lwanga and others earn their daily bread at the famous Kitende hill.
However, the visitors remain unfazed by the ‘big’ names. The Stars themselves have skipper Nelson Senkatuka, Jamil Karisa, Sula Ssebunza, Augustine Kacancu, Derrick Ngobi, Brian Enzema, Henry Kiwanuka and Brian Kayanja among others to boost of.
If fielded, Bright Stars midfielder Methiodious Jjunju returns to the fortress where he spent a long spell of his teen era as captain for the Vipers Junior Team.
Dan Birikwalira is injured but even though he was fit, he would not have been an option to think of since he is on loan at Bright Stars from Vipers.
The other interesting contest will definitely be on the sidelines as Kajoba alongside Paul Kiwanuka comes face to face with Michael ‘Nam’ Ouma who is working hand in hand with Edward Golola.
