Soltilo Bright Stars will kick off the second round of the Startimes Uganda Premier League with a visit to the Prisons Grounds in Luzira to play against Maroons FC.
This will be first game of the second round of the 2022/23 season the team plays since the earlier scheduled match against Vipers SC was postponed due to the latter’s involvement in the CAF Champions League. It will also be the first league match the team plays this year as both the last two matches the team has played have been Stanbic Uganda Cup matches.
Coming into this match, the team has won all its 3 previous competitive matches and will be hoping to continue with the run. This however will not be an easy feat as the opponents, Maroons FC, will also be out for a strong fight and will be with the home advantage.
The first leg of this fixture ended in a goalless stalemate in what was a hotly contested affair at the Kavumba Recreation grounds last October. It will similarly be a close encounter as our gaffer faces off with his former pay masters.
This will be the 8th time the two teams meet with the Kavumba side registering 3 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws.
