With SC Villa Jogoo and KCCA FC having confirmed their slots in the semifinals of the Stanbic Uganda Cup, there are two more places left to complete the 4 team line up this weekend.
Kansai Plascon a team playing in the FUFA Big League will host Vipers SC in Mukono on Sunday while Synergy FC another side playing in the second division will be at home to Proline FC in Masaka.
Proline FC and Synergy FC almost share similar struggles in their respective leagues both fighting relegation but have had a good campaign in the Stanbic Uganda Cup and coaches of either side have promised a great display come Saturday.
Brian Ssenyondo the Manager of Synergy FC indicates that they believe in a similar playing philosophy and thus the game will be interesting for the fans.
“This is certainly a renewal of acquaintances. We have faced Proline FC before and almost share similar beliefs in terms of playing style and I believe we shall offer a good performance for the fans.” He said during the pre match press briefing on Thursday.
Ssenyondo added that his team is prepared and focused on progressing to the next stage.
‘This is our best performance in the competition but that doesn’t mean we are contented. We are prepared and ready to go as far as we can’ said the soft spoken tactician Senyondo.
‘This is a game between teams that play a similar style and our engagements with Synergy FC have been close. They have won twice and we have also managed two wins in the four encounters so that shows how Saturday’s game will be’
His counterpart Mujib Kasule is aware of the threat that Synergy FC pose and thus indicates Proline FC will go into the game with full commitment.
‘We have of late improved in the league, winning our last two games and this motivates us going into the game against Synergy FC. These two teams have played each other in the past. We have players with strong attachments to Synergy. Progressing to the next stage in this competition will add onto our confidence to fight for safety in the league;
Kansai Plascon head coach Angelo Lonyesi has warned his opponents Vipers SC indicating his team is prepared and ready to eliminate the 2016 winners.
‘My team is in good shape and we are unfazed about playing Vipers SC. They play in the top tier league and we play in the second division but if you are keen enough, the gap between them and us is small. I believe home advantage will play in our favor and the fact that we have improved in our recent games gives us confidence ahead of the game’ said Lonyesi
