*Wakiso Giants Vs KCCA FC – 4PM
Wakiso Giants new coach Kefa Kisala will aim to get off the mark when his side face KCCA FC in the last quarter final in the 2019 FUFA Pilsner Super eight encounter.
The Purple Sharks, promoted from the Big League will host UPL defending champions KCCA FC at Wakisha Resource centre’s Kyabaggu Stadium on Tuesday.
All eyes will be on Kisala as he will be in charge if his first competitive game since he was named Wakiso’s head coach, succeeding Ibrahim Kirya who had led the club to top flight league.
“As Wakiso, we are set and ready for this game” Kisala noted, while speaking on Monday at the pre-match press conference at Kati kati in Kampala.
“We started our training early enough and we are not just going to participate but to compete, so it is going to be an entertaining game.”
KCCA FC are the defending champions of the Super eight after beating Onduparaka in the inaugural edition. Mike Mutebi’s charges will go all out to avoid a shocking exit.
The last meeting between the two coaches saw Kisala beat Mutebi 3-2 in December last year, then, Kisala was at Express.
The teams have met twice – KCCA beat Wakiso 2-0 in the Philip Omondi tournament while the other was a 1-1 draw in the friendly at Lugogo.
“KCCA FC are a good side, better organised amd there is a tendency of those organised teams to come and disorganise you but we have done enough in terms of preparations.
“This is the better time to face KCCA and we hope to use this chance at maximum.”
Its should be noted that Kefa Kisala has coached many different clubs in Uganda which include Masaka LC, Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), BUL FC and lately Express Football club so its not going to be a walk in the park for Kasasiro boys.
The winner will join Onduparaka, Vipers and Mbarara City to the semis.
