Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa is hopeful of his side’s progress to the last 16 ahead of their Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of the 32-second leg against Kyetume FC at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium.
Express played catch-up in the first leg as they twice had to come from behind to pick up two precious away goals.
John Byamukama and Eric Kambale were on the scoresheet to hand the Red Eagles the advantage in the encounter.
Speaking ahead of the second leg, Bbosa highlighted that his side were ready for the outing. “We’ve been correcting our mistakes from the 2-2 draw against Kyetume and we’re set for the match.”
“We have focused on attacking so that we can score and kill off the game as soon as possible,” he added.
Bbosa also stressed the competition is another chance at this season’s glory; “The Uganda cup is a very important competition in the club’s history.”
“Having won it 10 times, we want to ensure we win it again. I am sure the boys will deliver,” he said.
The Red Eagles will be without Abel Etrude’s services as he continues to nurse a knee injury. Defender Arthur Kiggundu and George Ssenkaba continue to be long-term absentees.
The visitors who recently parted ways with interim head coach Alex Isabirye after just 6 games in charge, will have assistant head coach Jimmy Kintu Mwera on the touchline.
