Express frantic to offer to set things right at Brilliant Stars

Following back-to-back defeats since the resumption of the second round, Express FC seek a return to winning ways when they visit Soltilo Bright Stars.

The Red Eagles lost 3-1 and 4-3 to Mbarara City and KCCA respectively but made amends in the Uganda Cup where they progressed to the round of 16.

There has been reported unrest at the club since the defeat to KCCA with rumors that Alex Isabirye wanted to leave the club and players missing training but that has been kept under the carpet by the Red Eagles.

“We didn’t do well in the last two games but the issues which led to our defeats have been rectified,” assistant coach Augustine Nsumba told the media.

“If all goes according to plan, we shall get maximum points from this encounter,” he added.

The seven-time champions, 8th on the log with 25 points are just two positions above the day’s opponents who are on 21 points.

The visitors are without Alpha Ssali (national duty), Marvin Oshaba and Eddie Asiimwe who are suspended due to accumulation of bookings.

Elsewhere, Mbarara City host Busoga United in a relegation six pointer at Kakyeeka.

Wasswa Bbosa’s men are 11th with 20 points, just five ahead of Busoga United who occupy the last slot in the relegation zone.
