Head coach Frank 'Video' Anyau believes his side’s next game will be a turning point if results go their way.

Relegation-threatened BUL FC are looking to change the course of their fate when they host 4th-placed Vipers SC this Friday at Kakindu Stadium in the Azam Premier League.

They have registered one win in their last five games and are second from the bottom on 16 points.

Head coach Frank 'Video' Anyau (pictured) believes his side’s next game will be a turning point if results go their way, saying the it will be a “do-or-die” tie for them.

On top of that, he expects his players to work hard enough for a vital three points.

''My BUL FC is on the wrong end of the table and basing on how our opponents Vipers FC are currently, it means that this is a do-or-die game for us .

“We have to attack Vipers FC right from the word go if we are to get a win and move with the pressure group. It’s very tight but at the moment we have no option but to fight for the win,” said Anyau.

“Of course our supporters will have to back the team.”

BUL suffered a 2-0 away defeat to The Saints FC three days after easing past Express FC 3-0 at home. Before then, it had been a disappointing run of a loss and two draws.

And more recently, they were beaten 1-0 by URA FC in the Uganda Cup.

But with a game in hand on their relegation zone rivals (Jinja SSS and JMC Hippos), Anyau’s side still have a chance to crawl out of danger.

A combination of David Bagole, Robert Achema and new team captain Yunus Sibira in midfield could prove a handful for Vipers as they link up for pacy Villa Orum Chan who netted a hattrick against Express.

After their local rivals Jinja SS winning 2-0 against Saints and are ahead of them on goal difference, the pressure is now on BUL to win Friday’s clash.

Victory will lift BUL out of the relegation zone if Sadolin Paints, who are on the edge, do not beat Bright Stars FC the following day at home.
