“Ofcourse our game against Wakiso Giants will be a different game because Wakiso is not S.C Villa, they have their style of play but we’ve been watching them on several occasions and we’ve been perfecting our errors from the previous game, they score many goals at home and that’s what we want to avoid but our target is to win tomorrow’s game so that we close the gap and finish in the top 4”.

“we are all well motivated and happy due to our back to back wins but we want to make it 3 in 3, we want to make the top four but to do that we must win games.

Individually I am hoping to give my all if given the opportunity to play the match”. Express winger Charles Musiige said.
