In the pre match reactions, Gaffer Mike Mutebi had this to say;

Mike Mutebi

There must be a reaction. URA has always been a hard side to crack and the game will be tough but we shall try to do our best to win it and boost the players confidence ahead of the CAF game next week.

We have enough in our Armory to negotiate this tie despite our squad being thin due to injuries of Aliro Moses, Gift Ali, Poloto Julius and Balinya Juma.
