Kampala-Proline take pride in the high speed short passing style of football that has served them well since the club came into existence 13 years ago.

And with a healthy Caf Confederation Cup first leg advantage over Malawian side Masters Security, the club believe it is another opportunity to stick to their approach in the return leg this evening in Malawi.

“I think we shall try to protect our first leg gains by making sure we are the ones with the ball most of the time. We believe that the team that has the ball cannot be hurt as much and we think we can hold the ball better than they can,” Proline director Mujib Kasule observed.

That is expected to be the same message new coach Mathias Lule will share with the players as he takes charge of his first game since replacing Shafik Bisaso who left the country last week.

He has a 3-0 lead to bank on as they seek to progress past the preliminary round at the first time of asking after Ivan Bogere’s hattrick from the first leg at the StarTimes Ground a fortnight ago.

With no injury worries, he could name an unchanged side with Noordin Bunjo, Bright Anukani, Arnold Sserunjogi and Ibrahim Wammanah playing behind Bogere.

They play a Masters Security side that has shown little signs of improvement going by their last two league results in which they played out a 1-all draw with Kamuzu Barracks before losing 3-0 to Civil Sporting.

The results left the club that is also experiencing financial difficulty occupying the third and final relegation spot on the 16-team log at the end of the first round.

The winner of the tie will face either Tanzania’s Kinondoni Municipal Council F.C or AS Kigali who played out a goalless draw in Rwanda in the first leg.
