Lonyesi plotting for major scalp in Uganda Cup quarterfinal

By Elvis Senono

Kampala. Kansai Plascon coach Anjelo Lonyesi is hoping to use Vipers’ Friday league excursions to his advantage when the two meet today in the last quarterfinal of this season’s Stanbic Uganda Cup.
The Venoms come into this game on the back of another vital 3-2 win over title rivals KCCA on Friday but Lonyesi whose side is on a four game winning run including Thursday’s 2-0 win over Greater Masaka in the Big League spoke with defiance.

“We shall employ man to man tactics because when you use that they tend to fear. So we shall be physical because they will be a bit tired from Friday ,” he said during the pre-match press conference.
He will not be shot of experience either with former topflight league players
Allan Oryek, Farouk Kawooya, Godfrey Kateregga,Sijali Jamali, Nasser Mujahid in his ranks, the last two having stuck with the club following relegation to the Big League.

Plascon also boast current tournament top scorer Henry Kitegenya who has scored six goals thus far.
They also reached the semifinals of this tournament last season before falling to Paidha Black Angels. Progression for Vipers for Vipers means they will join SC Villa and KCCA the other two sides also still in league title contention.
