Kooki seeks to bounce back when they face Kyadondo in Masengere group of the Masaza Cup at FUFA Technical centre in Njeru.

Kooki lost to Mawokota 2-1 in their opener on Thursday with Fazil Tumwine and Isaac Ofoyrwoth on target. Anthony Ssekidde Masikirano penalty proved to be a consolation in the loss for Kooki.

“We have taken lessons from the Thursday’s game, we failed to answer some questions against Mawokota,” said Kooki coach Sadick Ssempigi.

“We have gone through a good program to correct our mistakes, players have gone through the same program and ready to win the next game. A win will give us hope of going to the next level.

“We are going to give our best in order to play our last game with a goal to chase.”

Ssempigi also revealed that he expects to make three changes from the team that started against Mawokota, and style of play.

He added: “This is a team for Kooki fans, we miss them surely because their support always motivated the players. We hereby call them to watch games and on TV and listen to radios as well.”
