Meanwhile, SCVU Head Coach Alex Isabirye believes his side’s maiden appearance in the Uganda Cup final and previous results between SCVU and Vipers will be all the encouragement his team needs to claim victory.

SCVU has met Vipers (Bunamwaya) four times, losing on three occasions and drawing once.

“What more can the team want than to end a winless run against Vipers in a final,” said Isabirye after watching Vipers’ second leg win over URA FC in Lugazi.

“Reaching the final has been great for the side. No new team in the league has managed to reach where we have.”

SCVU set a national record by becoming the only team in its first year in the top division to reach the finals of the competition.

With SCVU having more scores to settle, Isabirye who guided URA FC to victory in last year’s final over the same side; then Bunamwaya SC is relishing the opportunity to do it again.

“It is a good game to manage. All you need is the mental readiness to play a final.”

“Many of my players have not been here before. But our preparation will be key.”

“If i can do it again, why not! I certainly am sure we can get the victory.”

The university side on Tuesday shifted training grounds from the all green Namboole Stadium to the rough and patchy Luzira Secondary School grounds with a forecast that the team would face similar pitch conditions when they play at the Masindi.

This year’s final will be played at the Masindi Municipal Stadium on Sunday 26 May.
