viagra geneva;”>The Saints and SCVU both share Namboole as their home ground but have never met in a competitive game. SCVU are playing in the top tier FUFA Super League while The Saints are in their maiden season in the second tier FUFA Big League.

But the two have met several times albeit in training friendly games. The last meeting on January ended 3-1 in favour of The Saints and word coming out of the defending champions’ camp is one of going out for nothing but revenge.

In that friendly Nelson Ssempagala scored a brace on his debut with Benzema Kitatta adding the third.

The Saints stormed into last 16 of the Uganda Cup with a walkover after Masindi Tigers failed to honour the tie. While SCVU saw off another Big League side Ndejje University 0-2 at Ndejje in Luwero.

And Saints coach Twinamatsiko is under no illusion who is favored to win this tie.

“We are the underdogs here, SCVU are the defending champions, they’re an FSL side and am hearing that they’ll be out for revenge, which is surprising because we have never played them in any serious game, we’ve only met in friendlies.”

“But we need to be positive, play our game and enjoy ourselves. We need a good attitude.”

NB: The Saints will be minus striker Rajab Jooga because he is on loan from SCVU
