Soltilo Bright Stars FC are enduring a torrid end to the campaign that has had them lose each of their last three domestic games, without scoring a goal.

They occupy ninth on the 15-team Uganda Premier League log on 35 points with a game to the end of the season.

They are however in the semi-finals of the Uganda Cup, despite trailing 4-0 to Vipers SC from the first leg.

The team's technical staff is pleased with how the season has panned out and certain the future in well laid out.

"There's a lot of progress and a lot of achievement from the season," said Bright Stars' assistant head coach Tom Ssali following their 1-0 defeat to Arua Hill SC in their final home game of the season on Tuesday.

"To me, when you look at the way we want to play, we put the ball down, build attacks from defence. We have a team philosophy and style," he added.

"Bright Stars has its own identity, whoever comes to play against knows that the team has this particular kind of style, so I am happy we worked on style of play, our philosophy and it's coming out."

"So, if we continue building on that, the Bright Stars of next season will be even more different and better than this one," Ssali vowed.

The Kavumba outfit is certain of a top ten finish this season, but could even ascend to seventh with victory in their last game against KCCA FC.

This reflects an improvement from last season, where the team needed the final day to be certain of top-flight football.

They eventually made 12th with 36 points in 30 matches, ahead of record holders SC Villa.
