Debutants Blacks Power will play their maiden game of the topflight whe they host Alex Isabirye’s BUL FC at Aki Bua Stadium in Lira
The new comers’ head coach Peter Onen will face his former employers whowon the Stanbic Uganda Cup last season.
They will vest their hope in last year’s Big League MVP Mike Siwu and the best goalkeeper Emmanuel Odongkara
Bronson Nsubuga, defender Mike Kawooya and Baden Mujahid are also expected to carry the Westnile based club.
BUL will have to negotiate the fixture in the absence of key attacker Simon Peter Oketch who misses out on the match day squad for reasons unexplained.
Karim Ndugwa, Frank Kalanda defender Walter Ochora and Richard Wandyaka will be the men to watch for BUL.
Onen is very aware of the superiority of his opponents but believes a side with a better tactical approach will take the day
“We are debutants facing a side better than us with experience but as you know football a side with a better tactical approach takes the day.”
Despite winning the Uganda Cup last season Isabirye will not take this game for granted since these are two different competitions,
“First games of the season are not easy being new in the league can not stop our opponents to desire for three points.”
“We start the season with a task of competiting, we can not take this game for granted because we won the Uganda Cup. These are two different competions and our prayer is to have a good day so that we can get the maximum points.”
BUL FC has no injury concerns, neither do they have suspensions and it leaves Isabirye with a wide range of options to choose from.
