Ahmed Borin, Mbabazi’s assistant believes they have done enough home work following a disappointing result from their last game.

“In our previous game, we did all we could but did not get the maximum points because luck was not on our side.”

“That challenged us to push more harder for this fixture so that we can at least get maximum points despite anticipating a tough tie.” Borin added

The hosts will only miss out on the services of Faizal Anini due to suspension.

Alex Gitta targets nothing but maximum points in Arua,

“This is an important match for us as a club. Our sole objective is to get positive results.”

“In the first round we played against Onduparaka in Arua at 3:00pm and one hour difference is little so no worries and our players can easily adapt to the conditions and of now is is not very hot.”

Wakiso Giants will be without Samson Kirya, Ivan Bogere, Frank Ssebuufu, Simon Namwanja, Hassan Wasswa Dazo and midfielder Ibrahim Kasule.

They welcome back defender Alex Komakech, Edward Satulo and Sharif Kimbowa.

Maximum points will temporarily take Arua Hill SC to the fifth position replacing Express FC.

Wakiso Giants can also move to the sixth position in case of victory as they will be going to 30 points.
