Bul Football Club continues with the desperate fight against being relegated to the second tier league.

Since the second round kicked off, the Kakindu-based side has blown hot and cold on several occasions.

Having comfortably out muscled Express 3-0, they fell in 2-0 in the subsequent game to The Saints and URA (in the Uganda Cup), drew one all against Kirinya-Jinja S.S before winning against Police and lately Bright Stars.

Acting head coach Peter Onen has acknowledged the role of his attacking midfielder cum attacker Robert Achema in the recent premier league matches.

Achema has scored three goals in the past two matches he has been introduced in the game as a substitute.

Onen is proud that the former SC Villa Jogoo and Sadolin Paints player always adheres to the instructions given prior to his introduction.

He (Robert Achema) is an impact player who has won us crucial games.

We need the mentality of such players and their experience.

A culprit against Kirinya-Jinja S.S in the epic derby, Achema has since rediscovered the passing and finishing touch scoring against Police at Nelson Mandela National stadium, Namboole and recording a brace before home fans against Bright Stars.

To Onen, Achema was relegated to the bench after the Jinja derby because he was better suited to cause an overhaul in the game.

I know it very well, Achema has the potentiality of turning around the game in our favour and he has done it to perfection against Police and Bright Stars.

BUL lingers in the relegation peripheries and needs at least 5 victories to be assured of being associated with the drop zone politicking and talk.

Any of JMC Hippos, Kirinya-Jinja S.S, Lweza, BUL, The Saints and Police could be relegated if results fail to turn their way.
