By Clive Kyazze

One might think it’s too early to get carried away, but Wasswa Bossa and his Tooro United side are settling in well at Buhinga Stadium.

The stadium is their home ground for the StarTimes Uganda Premier League and Stanbic Uganda Cup fixture from Kavumba Recreation Centre in Wakiso, they played there while known as Soana FC.

In eight outings at Buhinga, Tooro United are yet to lose a game there, they have registered four wins in the league and two draws.

A 2-0 win against Entebbe FC in the Uganda Cup Round of 64 booked them a date with holders KCCA at the round of 32.

After a two all draw at the final whistle, Tooro United triumphed 3-1 on penalties, that result turned Fort Portal upside down with wild celebrations.

“The fans have been there for us and there is a way their energy trickles down to the players and they play with resistance and determination on the pitch,” Tooro coach Wasswa Bossa told www.football-256.com.

“Here is completely different from Kavumba where the stadium was almost empty when we played and the only fans there were opposition fans, here it’s the total opposite,” he added.

Allan Kayiwa has been one of the team’s revelations this season, his equalizer against KCCA FC in the cup is one of the many important goals he has scored this season. He wasn’t far off from his coach about the impact the fans have had in their season so far.

“Now we can confidently say that Buhinga is our fortress. Everyone who is coming here has second thoughts,” Kayiwa told Daily Monitor.

Tooro United face Express on Tuesday in the league with sights on three points and with the Uganda Cup Round of 16 draw around the corner, another home tie is what they will be hoping for.
