Wakiso Giants will be without midfielder Titus Ssematimba and defender Simon Namwanja due to accumulated yellows.

Hassan Wasswa Dazo remains out with injury whereas defenders Grant Matsiko and Edward Satulo are back after missing the previous game.

Express on the other hand have been boosted by the return of defender Murushid Juuko who missed the last five games.

Midfielder Abel Etrude and Deus Bukenya are sidelined while center back Issa Lumu is suspended due to accumulated bookings.

Head To Head

Express will be targeting a double over the Purple Sharks having won the first round encounter 1-0 courtesy of Eric Kambale’s first half penalty.
