The final remains a tactical affair between the two technical dockets during the final.

Nimrod Kintu, Moses Ssekasana, Jovan Magino and Frank “Video” Anyau will all share ideas before and during the contest for Amus College.

Kitende has Daniel Male, Joackim Mukungu and veteran coach Edward Golola to pick out ideas on how to engineer victory at the East African level for the umpteenth time.

How the different line ups are assembled prior to the team, conduct of players on the field of play and strategy to implement the tactics will mean a great deal.
