The hosts have only managed 4 wins and the rest ended in stalemate.

In the first round meeting at Kavumba, Soltilo Bright Stars earned a spotless 2-0 victory thanks to a Nelson Senkatuka brace.

Despite their impressive form in the Stanbic Uganda cup where they have reached the semi finals, Bright Stars have contrasting performances in the league.

They are only 5 points ahead of relegation threatened Busoga United who are sitting 12th with 23 points.

BUL still have hopes of improving on their position as victory would push them above URA who are currently occupying 4th place on 34 points.
