Express welcome FUFA Big League entity Lugazi FC at Luzira Prisons ground in the Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 32.

The game is at Luzira, possibly because Wankulukuku is unavailable as it prepares to host Masaza Cup final next month.

The Red Eagles will hope to avoid scare caused by Minnows in the domestic cup.

After struggling to eliminate Buganda Regional League side Kajjansi United, James Odoch charges will not take this match for granted.

An own goal from Ronald Kizito and Joseph Akandwanaho first strikes inspired Express to a 2-1 away triumph over the third tier side.

Express FC Assistant Coach Ndifuna Bernard is aware of the threats that the minnows can cause so they won’t take the game easily.

“We play at a much higher level than them but that should not make us proud in any way because we have seen a lot of surprises in this competition so far”.

“We have prepared well and every player is in good shape and I believe we shall win tomorrow.” Deputy coach Ndifuna

For Lugazi FC, this will be a statement win for them if they can upset the hosts.

They will hope to follow the footsteps of the lower clubs that have knocked out the top flight teams.

Heading into this round, the leaders needed penalties to eliminate Water FC 5-4 after a one all draw in normal time.
