Pre-match reactions

Mike Hillary Mutebi;

We expect a tough challenge from Police FC. They play a good brand of football but we are ready for the challenge. We want to win this game because we are home. We won our last league game against Maroons away and it would be good if we kept that momentum. And there is no better way to do it than winning at home. We will be without Muzamiru, Revita, Lukwago, Kasozi and Kizza because they are away for national duty but i trust the other players will get the job done.
