Proline host Alex Isabirye’s BUL in the first leg quarter finals of the Stanbic Uganda Cup at MTN Omondi Stadium in Lugogo.

Proline eliminated fellow big league side Mbale Heroes 3-1 on aggregate to progress to the quarter finals. Here they face a more serious opponent in BUL who won their first match under Isabirye by beating Onduparaka 3-1.

BUL also defeated Kigezi HomeBoyz 4-2 on aggregate to make it to this stage.

Isabirye comes in this game targeting nothing else but victory,

“We are expecting a tough side that managed to win it a season back despite resting out only two days since we left Kabale we are ready for the game”

“We are shall be a bit concious by not opening up as we target winning the game”

Proline will look to Nicholas Ssebwato, Hamisi Diego Kizza and Hakim Kiwanuka inspire them to victory.

Yusuf Mukisa is nursing a knee injury, Norman Kugonza is suspended while Savio Kabugo will out on compassionate leave for the loss of his father in law.

Richard Wandyaka, Musa Esenu, Simon Peter Oketch and Kenneth Ssemakula are the men to watch as BUL will be targeting to move away with first leg victory.

The two sides will have to play a second leg where the aggregate winner will progress to the semi finals.
