*Match Preview – Purple Sharks Besiege Kakyeka
Wakiso Giants visit Mbarara City in hope for a positive result at Kakyeka Stadium.
The Purple Sharks have expressed readiness ahead of the encounter despite a few injuries and absentees in the squad.
“We are ready to face Mbarara City, it’s a good side but we go for positive results. We are missing some players but the rest of the squad will be able to bring a positive result,” Said Wakiso Giants Assistant Coach Robert Ssekweyama.
Wakiso Giants have lost once in their last eight games, a huge improvement for a side that conceded unanswered eight goals in their opening two games.
They come into this one on the back of a 1-0 win over UPDF FC, a result that saw them move to fourth place!
However, they will be put to a test against Mbarara city who have won all but Vipers at Kakyeka.
In fact, Mbarara City recovered from two down to beat Onduparaka in their last encounter.
Coach Hussein Mbalangu’s detractors have accused him of tinkering with the starting XI but the ongoing injury worries in his squad are set to worsen the situation.
Last season, Kipson Atuheire scored the only goal as Wakiso Giants beat Mbarara City at Kakyeka.
