“Farouk is smashing. He’s good, he’s been training well and he’s quite happy,” Twinamatsiko said.
“We have a clear indication of what to expect from him and his teammates. We just have to use our talents and make sure we go out to play to our fullest potential.”
The Saints will be pout to make it better against Mutundwe Lions as they conceded a late equaliser in the first when the drew 1-1 in Lubiri.
Mutundwe will rely on the services of Bunkedeko Badru, Sempagama Peter, Njiri Christopher, Buwembo Ronald and Kateregga Ronald.
Lweza survive scare
Lweza United survived a scare scoring a late goal to beat Wandegeya FC 2-1 played at Kiteezi on Saturday to maintain their promotion hopes.
Lweza fell behind after 19 minutes before coming from behind with second half strikes from leading scorer with six goals Fred Kalanzi and second half substitute John Kisakye who struck in the 90th minute with a powerful header.
“We reached our aim. We won the game. It was a very good reaction in the second half. The performance was good and if we continue with such perfomance, We shall fulfil our dreams of playing in the Super league next year,” said Lweza tactician Viali Bainomugisha.

Baza, who will be in action against Mvara on Sunday, lead the group on superior goal difference.
