Uganda Premier League
Wakiso Giants Vs Tooro United
Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium
Thursday @4: 30 pm
New league entrants Wakiso Giants host Tooro United at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in one of the Uganda Premier League games on Friday
Wakiso Giants enter into this game in search of their second win in the league this season. They defeated URA 3-1 on Tuesday.
Tooro got their season off to a great start, winning 2-1 against Busoga United. And they should have picked up at least a point against Vipers, but were undone by a loss in concentration at a critical time as Vipers grabbed a late winner.
Speaking ahead of the game, head Coach Wakiso Giants Kefa Kisaala said his players are ready for the game and they can’t wait to get their second win of the season.
“The players are ready for the game. And with the mood in the camp following our maiden victory against URA, I know they cannot wait to go again,” Kisaala said ahead of the game.
Tooro United team captain Mike Kawoya said the team is prepared to take on the hosts and they want all the three points.
“We have prepared well and the players are prepared to go get the three points off Wakiso” said Kawoya.
Tooro United are likely to stick to their starting lineup that lost to Vipers but will be hoping that their attack, headlined by new signing of John Semazzi, Steven Omvia and Godfrey Lwesibawa, does the needful this time.
The purple sharks head into the game without skipper Yasin Mugabi who was taken off in their last game with an injury. Defender Hassan Wasswa Dazo and forward Yasin Mugume are also sidelined due to injuries.
Krizestom Ntambi may still miss out on this game because of his ITC.
Tooro will be without head coach Wasswa Bbosa who is still serving a touchline ban after receiving his marching orders during their game against Vipers.
Both teams have so far met two times, both ties won by Wakiso Giants – The Purple Sharks beat Tooro 4-2 in shootouts and 2-1 in Uganda Cup and Super 8 respectively.
