Our  Stanbic Uganda Cup journey continues tomorrow evening at Greenlight Stadium as we pay a visit to Onduparaka in the first round of the Round of 16.

At the Round of 32, we eliminated Ndejje University on a 3-1 goals aggregate after two legs. Although there was a scare in the first leg, we managed to strongly bounce back in the second leg with a 0-3 win in order to book a place in this round.
