At the pre-match press briefing held at FUFA House Mengo on Thursday yesterday, the BUL FC tactician, Alex Isabirye Musongola is not sure whether they will win or lose to the angry venoms but he is sure, they will find the Kitende boys when they are well prepared compared to last year’s 8-1 emblasing defeat against the same side on final.

“Last year, we were not prepared enough to play Vipers SC and that is why we lost. This time we are ready for the game and I am not saying we are going to win or lose the game but we are learning how to compete. We are tied of participating and so we want to also make history.” said Isabirye

“I have no pressure, I know anything can happen on Sunday, so we are ready for the game.” he revealed.

“If we win the Cup we shall represent the country in the CAF Confederation Cup. I am a believer and I know we are going to win on Sunday and we shall represent the nation on the continent.” Said Isabirye
