· MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo 1pm Live on UBC/Star TV
The Purple Sharks make a trip to the MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo with optimism of earning a result that will see them qualify for the semi-finals of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
The boys lost a goal lead in the reverse fixture to lose 3-1 in the home fixture and now need to win by at least three unanswered goals.
Midfielder Gadaffi Wahab, a second half substitute in the first leg last week is optimistic of overturning the deficit.
“It was a bad day in office but we still have more 90 minutes to turn things around,” midfielder Gadaffi Wahab stated.
Team News: Ivan Bogere is back from an injury that has kept him out since the 1-1 draw away to Busoga United.
Hassan Ssenyonjo is still in the sickbay and so is striker Kipson Atuheire who also missed the first leg.
Key Stats: This will be our sixth competitive game against Police FC; 1 win against the Cops 3 and one draw in the last five meetings.
An outright 3-0 win will see us reach the semi-finals for the first time in the club’s history.
The Squad: Emukule, Kiirya, Komakech, Muwonge, Masiko, Ssebuufu, Kawooya, Kasule, Ssenfuka, Wahab, Kaddu, Ssekajugo, Atendele, Kaggwa, Lubwama, Satulo and Bogere.
