Its action parked Tuesday coming up at 4PM EAT at Kavumba Recreation Grounds as Soliton Brightstar's faceoff  the prison warders - Maroon FC in the only match of matchday 2 of the Uganda Premier League. As the opener for Match day Two, the two sides aim to put up a perfect start as the came comes just few days after impressing on match day one. 

The visiting side Maroons are still fresh from the well played matchday one goal scoring moods were they had thrashed Busoga United 5-0 on day one while Bright Stars held champions Vipers to a goalless stalemate at Kitende. 

With such a form for both teams, we aim to see a very fierce and entertaining game display at the kavumbi recreationally stadium, failure for the two sides to score by first 15 minutes of the both half's may mean a draw in this game but however any thing can still happen. 

Key to watch in this matchday two encounter is the Maroon FC's top goal poacher Fred Amaku, who in the previous Maroon FC Vs Busoga United FC was the man of the match. In His statement, Amaku promised to convert goals and great opportunities as he is quote; 

"My job is to create goal scoring opportunities for my teammates and myself. I love to score goals, because they win you games on important occasions!"

As per the current table standings, Maroon FC are Second placed on the table as their overwhelming 5:0 win against Busoga united places them Second on the Uganda premier league table whereas Brightstar's are 7th on the table after a stalemate draw up against Vipers as of the Match Day one.

In a pre match interview by Asaph Mwebaze whose name is synonymous with Maroons having been their coach for over thirteen years says he wants to build on the point at Kitende.

“We shall build on this point as we move into the season,” he said on Friday. Mwebaze will hope to have forward Nelson Senkatuka who missed the opener at Kitende available but is boosted by the availability of Bob Olouch and Frank Kato who were ineligible to face Vipers last week. 

His opposite number Muhammad Senfuma also has Andrew Samson Kigozi available after he missed the first game due to malaria. Brian Nkuubi is back from national duty with the Sand Cranes and it remains to be seen whether Senfuma will throw him in the mix immediately. Abraham Tusubira has an ankle injury while skipper David Ndihabwe was carried off in the opener. The last eight meetings have produced three wins for each and two draws.
