But the Ugandans face a team also hot on attack after their 7-0 mauling of Djibouti’s AS Ports in their opening match.

And Alex Isabirye, the URA coach, knows it will not be an easy task when they meet the Congolese.

“They scored seven goals in their first match,” Isabirye he said, adding, “So the first thing is to ensure we do not concede.

“We have to be alert at the back but also look for the goals. We want to win this game and qualify for the quarter finals as early as possible.”

Isabirye hinted on handing midfielders Augustine Nsumba and Sula Bagala in place of Saidi Kyeyune, who had a lackluster display against Simba, and Owen Kasule, who is struggling to shake off an ankle injury sustained in the win over Simba.

Feni is expected to continue manufacturing things upfront just behind Robert Ssentongo, with Yayo Lutimba patrolling the left midfield.
