Kisala counting on home advantage



Masaka welcome Water in the first quarter-final of the Bell Uganda Cup ON Saturday looking to add icing on their already decent season.

Kefa Kisala’s side are fourth in the Uganda Super League standings while Charles Ayieko’s outfit lie six places below on 25 marks.

The former Cranes star, Kisala, once coached Water when they were still called Maji but will not harbour any soft emotions as he bids to make his and Masaka’s history by lifting this year’s edition of the country’s oldest competition.

And he is counting on home advantage, where giants such as league champions URA have fallen, to negotiate a formidable Water side.

“It won’t be an easy game since it’s a knock out,” said Kisala, “I know they are physical but being hosts, we have an advantage.”

Masaka eliminated fellow topflight outfit, Victors, in the last 16 before dismissing URA 2-0 in the league at the same stadium.

Inspired by marksman Rashid Kyambadde, Kisala’s men will, however, have to dig deeper to prevail over a Joseph Bukenya-inspired Water, who ejected stubborn CRO en route here.

Water’s Ayiekoh has already made clear his intentions in the Cup in an earlier interview with SuperSport.com.

“The feeling in the dressing room and boys’ morale is that of ‘we can do it’,” he said, adding, “If you are to win the cup then you have to beat everybody.”

The winners between Water and Masaka will face either URA or SC Villa in the two-legged semi finals due April 24-28.
