During the break, they engaged in a friendly match, ending 2 all against Proline at Lugogo.

BUL on the other hand remains stable under Peter Onen and all his assistants.

Key battles and actors:

The duel between the two clubs is expected to be epic given the demands of the second round.

Right from the technical benches were key decisions will be called, it remains a close contest thus far.

BUL will look to the sharp scoring boots of Ojok, Villa Oromchan, Richard Wandyaka and new man Ssebutinde in the much desired quest for the goals.

Midfielders Ezeikel Katende, Douglas Owori, Yunus Sibira and Patrick Sembuya will provide the back up from the middle of the pack as defenders Willis Otong and skipper Mayanja offer the shield.

Maroons’ tried and tested Wasswa, new signing Otto, Dan Wagaluka, Pius ‘TZ’ Obuya and Rashid Agua are all potential match winners who could provide the magic for maximum points away from home.
