Sserwadda

Deo Serwadda will start his duties as Wakiso Giants head coach this Tuesday when they host Maroons FC in the StarTimes Uganda premier league tie at the Kabaka Kyabaggu grounds in Wakiso. Serwadda replaced sacked Livingston Mbabazi. The Purple Sharks stormed the round of 16 in the Stanbic Uganda Cup with a 5-0 home win at MYDA. Defender Hassan Wasswa Dazo hopes they can build on the Uganda Cup performance. “It was a good response after a few bad results in the league and we hope to build on this in the league as well,” he said. Right back Geriga Atendele is suspended for the encounter after accumulating three yellow cards while Gadafi Wahab with whom they joined last month from Onduparaka returns after missing the MYDA game in which he was cup tied. The reverse fixture ended in a 2-2 draw despite us leading 2-0 at some point in the game. The two teams are separated by just a single position and point on the log. We sit 9th with 25 points while Maroons are 10th with 24 points. Maroons have won just two games away from home, losing seven and drawing the other. The hosts home form reads six wins, three losses and one draw and only four teams KCCA (29), Vipers (25), Mbarara City (23) and URA (21) have managed more points at home. Sserwadda who is assisted by Steven Bengo has formerly coached SC Villa and URA FC among other clubs and is currently the coach of Kyambogo University in the Pepsi University football league. Mbabazi managed only two wins; against Onduparaka in the league as well as one Uganda Cup against Bugoigo at the Round of 64 in seven games.
