Pre-Match Reactions.

Fred Muhumuza.

“We have prepared well to get maximum points in Luzira. We have not won away in our first two games but possibly this time we shall do so. We are ready for the encounter, they are a good side but we shall try to unlock them. We shall try to push them to the limit and get better results.”

“We are so ready for the match. It means alot to us so we want to give it our best so that we get our first away win this season. Maroons is my former team but I am a Tax Collector now and I will work harder to ensure we get maximum points.”
