In the pre-match presser, Manager Morley Byekwaso had this to say;

Morley Byekwaso

We are ready as usual. We have prepared so well. The boys have trained so well and are picking up.

We are going to play a very good team in Nyamityobora and have a very good coach in Makumbi. So we expect a challenge against them.

We might make some changes in this game. Poloto and Kato will start in this one and maintain a number of the players that played against BUL FC to ensure we have the rhythm.

The objective is to win each game we play in the Uganda Cup to ensure we keep progressing past each round.
