When Fred Kajoba’s boys step out of their dressing room to play Onduparaka FC on Wednesday-one word will be on their mind; WIN.

No so many teams will come to Mwererwe and dream about winning at the Champions Stadium. Giants have fallen or left Mwererwe with just a point.

Onduparaka will not be spared as well when the Stars take on the Arua based side in a match to be televised live by League sponsors Azam TV.
