The other game will be an all FUFA Big League contest when Kitara takes on Kyetume at the Kigaya play ground in Hoima.

At Lugogo, it is a contest that is eagerly being awaited. Currently Proline tops the Rwenzori group of the FUFA Big League.

With Shafiq Bisaso as head coach, blue and yellow stripped club has all it takes to pose a challenge.

Experienced defender Musitafa Mujjuzi, Joseph Mandela, Bright Anukani and Isma Kabugu are some of the players that will be lined up.

The Catarpillars who reached the of the Uganda Cup in 2016 before losing to Vipers are targeting a solid performance to repeat the heroics back in the years.

Denis Okot Oola, Ceaser Samson Okhuti, Ezra Bidda and Gadafi Gadihno are some of the players expected to pose a serious threat to Proline.

In Hoima, Alex Isabirye’s Kyetume faces a stern test of character away to Richard Makumbi’s Kitara.

Ibrahim Kazindula, Vincent Walugembe Kayizzi and Faisam Malangu are the key pillars for Kyetume whilst George Ssenkaba and David Ndihabwe will lead the surge for a great performance for Kitara on the Kigaya home turf.

The successful winners of the two ties will join other clubs that have progressed to the quarter finals as BUL, Vipers, Wakiso Giants and Nebbi Central.
