Soltilo Bright Stars have no fear and respect for Express who they meet in the league on Friday according to assistant coach Tom Ssali.
The Kawempe based side visit Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku buoyant after picking their first win of the season in the last outing against Onduparaka.
They face a more confident Red Eagles side that is unbeaten since the 2-0 loss to rivals SC Villa and have won their last two successive games (exclusive of Busoga United game) which was abandoned while they led.
“We are going to Wankulukuku but we are not going to be conservative,” he told the club media. “We shall go with an attitude to attack and win the game and we believe we can get the desired result from there,” he added.
James Odoch expects a tough game against a stubborn team buoyed by picking their first win but he says his team is good enough for all three points.
“They are a stubborn team and those small teams usually raise their game playing against us,” said Odoch.
“Winning their last game against Onduparaka will motivate them but we have enough to win the game,” he added.
The Red Eagles are boosted by the return of midfielder Ssenoga who missed the last game through suspension.
Head to Head
The two sides have met 17 times in the league since Bright Stars earned promotion in 2013.
Express have a higher win ratio with 5 wins against the visitors 3 with the rest ending in stalemates.
Last season’s two meetings ended in stalemates with the corresponding game ending 1-1 at Wankulukuku.
