In the pre-match presser, Manager Mike Mutebi had this to say;

We want to end the first round on a high. The only way we can do that is picking maximum points against Proline FC. We face an enterprising side in Proline FC and we expect them to give us a run for their money. The win against SC Villa gave the team more confidence especially for the teenagers Kafumbe, Musa and Ssenyonjo. Playing a game that huge and delivering is a positive for me and them.

I will keep handing the youngsters opportunity to play and showcase their ability.

We are top of the scoring charts in the first round but i believe we can do better than that.
