After qualifying for the quarter finals of the Stanbic Uganda Cup, our focus is now back in the league as we seek to improve our position on the table.
On Friday, we host UPDF targeting a fifth league victory and a win is all we target.
The Purple Sharks go into the game buoyant after wins over Tooro United in the Cup and over Police FC in the league.
“We did the bare minimum of what was expected of us in the Cup against a lower division opponent,” said Coach Douglas Bamweyana. “Now, we focus on the league where we need to improve on the results that haven’t really matched our results but am delighted we have got better of recent,” he added.
In UPDF, we face our boss Kefa Kisala who managed us in the first round of the 2019/20 campaign.
Team News: Hassan Ssenyonjo, Fahad Kawooya, Hassan Wasswa and Geriga Atendele who were rested for the game against Tooro United on Tuesday are back in the squad.
Frank Ssebuufu who got a knock in that 2-2 draw has been declared fit and is part of the squad.
Key Stats: This will be the fourth meeting with UPDF. The previous three have had one win for the Purple Sharks, one for the army side and one stalemate – goalless one in the reverse fixture.
The Squad: Emukule, Kiirya, Komakech, Atendele, Muwonge, Bogere, Kawooya, Wasswa, Faizul, Ssenyonjo, Wahab, Senfuka, Sekajugo, Lubwama, Kaggwa, Satulo, Kaddu, Ssebuufu
