Newly promoted Uganda Premier League entity Gaddafi takes on Soltilo Bright Stars during matchday four at the Gaddafi Arena in Jinja city on Friday, 29th October 2021.

These two clubs have not won any game with Gaddafi having a point after their 1-all draw away at Tooro United in Fort Portal at Buhinga Stadium.

This was after falling 2-0 to nemesis side Busoga United on matchday one and slipping 2-1 away to Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.

Soltilo Bright Stars remains without a point in their opening two matches following losses away to Mbarara City (3-1) and lately at home to Onduparaka (1-0).

The contest on Friday afternoon therefore will be one for the two clubs in the box to earn their first maximum points in the 2021-2022 season.

Talking points:
This is the first-ever clash for these two clubs and it will purely be more experimental, especially so for the opening minutes.

Gaddafi’s head coach Abdul Mubarak Wamboya is eyeing the first three points at home in a game that will be played behind closed doors after a FUFA sanction for violating COVID-19 regulations.

His counterpart at Soltilo Bright Stars, Baker Mbowa is also optimistic to kick-start and got off a shoddy start.
