FRIENDLY MATCH RESULT
BUL FC 8 Danida 0
BUL FC v Soana at Kakindu stadium
Following a two-week league break, BUL FC head coach Frank ‘Video’ Anyau has called on his players to maintain their shape when the league resumes.
This Saturday, they will play against their traditional nemesis Soana FC.
The Jinja-based outfit will be boosted by their 8-0 win over Jinja’s lower division club Danida FC in a friendly build up game at Tobacco Abbey Dhaira playground.
Anyau’s men will look to maintain their recent two game unbeaten run when they face Soana, a side that won the reverse fixture 1-0 last season.
But the BUL tactician has been critically vocal about the brief breaks.
“These short holidays are somehow bad to our players because players tend to relax and lose their form,” he said.
“But once you get friendly matches, they tend to help your players boost their morale to bring back that appetite though I must say that friendly matches are not league points.
“We need to see my players keep their shape well before these three crunch games,” said Anyau.
Following their 0-0 draw against Jinja neighbours Sadolin Paints FC , BUL are just a place above relegation on goal difference with 11 points .
