Hussein Mbalagu’s Arua Hill also won their first two matches, condemning Blacks Power and Mbale Kataka 3-1 and 3-0 respectively.

Mbalangu confessed during the pre-match interview that he expects an open-minded game full of entertainment for both sides.

“The game is going to be fun and entertaining because the Maroons I know has a style of play, likewise us and we have a master plan to withstand them. I respect them (Maroons), love to play against  them and I get a feeling it is going to be a easier game for me tactically because playing a side that has a style is easier than a team that is hard to understand in sense of style” the former Uganda Cranes striker disclosed, as quoted by the club website.

The two clubs have got well experienced players ready to give each other a great run of their hard earned monies.
