New Entrants Wakiso Giants will play host to Mbarara City on matchday seven of the StarTimes UPL.

The game will be played at a neutral ground – Wankulukuku – after Wakiso’s Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium was not available: booked earlier by the owners for other activities.

The purple sharks come into the game on the back of a 1-0 loss to Onduparaka, a game that left the side winless in their last three games.

The visitors, under new coach Paul Nkata, beat Busoga United and will hope to build on that momentum come Saturday.

Wakiso Giants coach Kefa Kisala

It’s not yet known whether Hassan Ssenyonjo and Geoffrey Sserunkuma will start after coming in as substitutes in Arua but coach Kefa Kisala will hope for the best from Tom Masiko, Karim Ndugwa, Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Viane Sekajugo for goals.

Mbarara, 7th on the log with eight points from six games, have won twice, lost and drawn as many.

Nkata is likely to stick with the same team he used against Busoga as he said after his first win at Luzira with Paul Mucureezi, Brian Aheebwa and Ibrahim Orit the star attraction.


Captain Hillary Mukundane and Bamba Soulyemane who had his debut will seek to provide cover to goalkeeper Tom Ikara while Pistis Balenge and Onyai Reymond who had his first start of the season are expected to reprise their roles.

Its going to be the first time for both teams to meet in the top flight.
