Proline FC head coach Anthony Bongole and his troops will on Friday look to finish off the enemy MYDA FC in a rather robust style on the latter’s territory when they meet in the second leg of their Round of 32 Stanbic Uganda Cup tie.
The current holders are all but through to the next round after their emphatic 4-1 victory at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo, on Tuesday.
Proline were dominant over their top division opposition with Hakim Kiwanuka, Brian Umomy and Hamis Diego Kizza all on the score sheet.
But it is youngster Alpha Thierry Ssali’s incredible solo goal – his first for the club that got the whole country buzzing as the FUFA Big League side carry a huge lead into the second leg at the King George IV stadium in Tororo.
Ssali will be hoping for a third consecutive appearance and his second start in the Proline FC senior team and another chance to showcase his abilities.
Proline’s advantage gives Bongole an opportunjty to run a few changes with defender Savio Kabugo who has missed their last two games expected to play a part.
MYDA on the other hand will need to more than tripple their effort if they are to avoid another blow to their faltering season which has already claimed former coach Abdulswamadu Musafiri.
A three goal win remains attainable but new head coach Elisha Madanda will need to devise a quick plan to ensure his side pull off a great escape.
