(Kakyeka Stadium, Mbarara)

FUFA Big league side Proline FC will be taking on Super league team Nyamityobora in the Uganda Cup round of 32 at Kakyeka Stadium in Mbarara.

Unlike circumstances where lower league sides tend to play their hearts out when they face top flight teams, Proline Coach Shafic Bisaso has said that he will treat this tie as a normal game.

Proline’s main target this season is to earn promotion back to top flight, an achievement that is within their reach as the club is leading the Rwenzori group with 23 points after first round.

Bisaso, who was speaking exclusively to Kratos, revealed that much as he wants to have a good cup run in, promotion remains the first priority.

We have had enough preparations, like other games. We give respect to our opponents but We are not going out there to prove a point to anyone.

We will try out a few things here and there, we will try to do things in a perfect way and we will not be playing to die on the pitch.”

He added:
“We are taking part in Uganda Cup to win our games and we respect all our games but my priority is promotion.”

Proline FC will be without Hakim Kiwanuka and Joshua Okiror who are out for a month. Also, goalkeeper Saidi Keni has been ruled out of the game.

Nyamityobora on the other hand have struggled to make ends meet since making it to the top flight. The side, third from the bottom with nine points, have managed to win only two games in the league.
