Going into Wednesday’s encounter, Wakiso drew 1-1 away to Kyetume on Sunday in their last game, a result which was welcomed by head coach Ibrahim Kirya.
“It is good we did not lose on Sunday but then, am disappointed in my players that we failed to win despite all the chances we created.
“We will take the same approach like in the game against Kyetume, when we face UPDF and the target will be to pick all points.
Kirya has confirmed the same group of players that featured against on Sunday are all available for the game against UPDF but ruled out Isaac Ntege. Ntege was injured in the Kyetume game.
