- Wakiso Giants Vs Tooro United – Bugembe 4pm
Tooro United visit Fufa Big League side Wakiso Giants in the Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of 16 at Bugembe eager to break their impressive home record.
The hosts are yet to lose a game this season so far but most importantly, they haven’t conceded at home.
Tooro United presents arguably the biggest test in the season and how they negotiate the tie remains a big task at hand.
Coach Ibrahim Kirya believes their impregnable home record gives them confidence going into the game no matter the opponent.
“Playing at home where we haven’t lost a game and neither conceded a goal gives us confidence,” said Kirya. “Tooro United is a very good side with a good coach and a division above us but we can match them,” he added.
For Wasswa Bbosa, it’s a normal game but doesn’t cite much difference between the two sides.
“It’s a normal game and we are prepared the way we have done prior to all games,” said Bbosa.
The hosts will miss the services of striker Norman Ogik who is cup-tied after featuring for Police FC earlier in the competition while Ayub Kisaliita is ruled out due to injury.
Steven Bengo, Karim Ndugwa and Yasin Mugabi could feature for the side.
As usual, the visitors will look to danger man Allan Kayiwa for inspiration.
To reach the stage, Wakiso Giants eliminated Kireka United while Tooro United ejected holders KCCA.
