Morley Byekwaso’s charges know that cup football is a strong opportunity for the side to pick silverware this season given that the 13 time league Champions lie 4th on the table with 10 points behind leaders URA FC.

A win against Maroons in the 2nd leg of the Uganda Cup will instill more confidence in the side ahead of the final bend of the season.
