Mawokota hosts Kyadondo in the second of the double header on Monday, January 11, 2021 as the Masengere group in the on-going Masaza Cup 2020.

Three time champions of this tournament, Mawokota is in pole advantage to qualify for the last eight stage.

Richard Malinga’s Mawokota will seal the quarter final berth with a draw or maximum points in the match against Kyadondo that kicks off at 3 PM.

Mawokota has had two wins against Bugerere (2-0) and Kooki (2-1) gives them a slight advantage over the rest of other three teams.

Malinga believes he will achieve the desired result with a superb performance.

“We need maximum points, there is no compromise. We are determined and set for the game against Kyadondo” Malinga disclosed on the eve of the game.
