Uganda Cup Quarter Finals:

Sunday, 19th April 2015

Kyambogo F.C VS KCC – 3:00 P.M

Kyambogo football club and KCC play in the Uganda Cup quarter final duel on Sunday at the U.P.K grounds.

At stake is a place to the last 4 stage where Lweza and BUL F.C have already booked their berths.

The other semi final is between Sports Club Victoria University and Sports Club Villa at Namboole stadium.

Kyambogo F.C has had a great run in this tournament having ejected giants in Vipers, The Saints and Jinja side, Sadolin Paints along the way.

Goal keeper, Paul Etyang and skipper Charles Ssemanda remain two crucial elements for team Kyambogo for their flamboyance thus far.

Other Kyambogo’s inspirational figures are; Nicholas Mutumba, Thomas Mugabe, Kintu Ramsey, Paul Malunge and Andy Obonyo.

We are not under any sort of pressure, we are at home and each player has the belief of eliminating KCC

Kyambogo team skipper, Ssemanda remarks.

KCC still in mathematics of retaining the league envisages the Uganda as the direct access to representing Uganda on the continent next year since the Uganda cup winner earn a ticket to play at the CAF Confederations cup.

January signings, Baker Lukooya and Joseph Ochaya share a rich vein of goal scoring form for the club in the last two club matches.

The duo scored in the 3-0 and 2-0 victories over Rwenshama and Sports Club Victoria University respectively.

They will be called upon to salvage the ‘Kasasiro lads’ at this stage.

Yasin Mugabi, who has been the first choice goal keeper for this season is expected to maintain his slot ahead of Benjamin Ochan.

Herman Wasswa, William Wadri, Simon Namwanja, Paul Mucureezi and Tom Matisko are the other KCC players expected to spark the 2004 Uganda Cup winners.

Kyambogo F.C will miss the services of star player, Gift Talikwa and KCC’s long term injury casualties Savio Kabugo and Francis Olaki still remain side lined.

In case the game remains locked in terms of scores by the full time whistle, then extra time will be played and possible penalties to determine who joins Lweza, BUL and the winner between SCVU and SC Villa in the cup semi finals.

The draws for the semi finals will be held on Wednesday, 22nd April 2015.
