The place to be is Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, Wakiso on Saturday afternoon when Wakiso Giants host Police in the first game of the second round of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
The highly anticipated clash will see both national team coaches in our own Charles Livingstone Mbabazi and his colleague Abdallah Mubiru facing off.
Kirizestom Ntambi and Tom Masiko are all ruled out through injuries although the latter could be available for our next game as he started training this week.
Also doubtful is versatile Ayub Kisaliita but the rest of the squad is fit and available for selection.
Yasin Mugume is back into the team after missing the entire first round through injury.
· This will be our first game in the New Year and also the first for new coach Charles Livingstone Mbabazi.
· This will be the second competitive against the Cops. They edged the reverse fixture 2-1 at Lugogo.
· Viane Ssekajugo leads our goal scoring charts with 7 goals and has been involved in 12 goals all through.
· Only Hassan Ssenyonjo and Viane Ssekajugo played all 15 first round games.
· Ivan Ssebuguzi is the only player that didn’t feature in any league game in the first round but could make his debut against the Cops.
· In the 17 league games played at home since last season, we have lost only 2, won 11 and only 3 draws.
· Yasin Mugabi, Yasin Mugume and Hakim Ssenkumba will face their former bosses if selected
Baker Kasule (Assistant coach)
“We have had good preparations and we hope to give fans a good spectacle. Our target is to improve on the first round results and lift the team to a better position.
“The camp is good save for Kirizestom Ntambi who is injured and Tom Masiko who returned to training but will not be available for selection on Saturday. The rest are fine and available.”
Hassan Wasswa Dazo
“As players, we are motivated and set for the game. The target is to begin the second round with a win and playing at home gives us self-belief.
“Police is a good team with a good coach but we must stand up and show we are better.”
