Synergy Football Club have had a sensational run in this year’s Stanbic Uganda Cup already punching above their weight.

Reaching the quarterfinals this year is the club’s best progress in the competition but team manager Brian Ssenyondo indicates this doesn’t bring satisfaction because there is an opportunity to advance to the next stage.

“ We are happy with the performance so far but there is a chance for us to go a step ahead and we are focused on making progress.” Ssenyondo said.

The Masaka based side will be at home to Uganda Premier League outfit Proline FC with the two teams almost facing similar struggles in their respective leagues.

Synergy FC are languishing in the drop zone in Rwenzori group of the FUFA Big League whilst Proline on the other hand have not yet confirmed their safety in the top tier league.

Proline FC boss Mujib Kasule however indicates the league woes will be put aside and get focused on the game against Synergy FC.

“It is an opportunity for us to progress. The performance in the league has not been good but I believe staying in the Cup tournament will be a big motivation in our pursuit to beat the drop,” he said before adding Synergy FC will not be a pushover, “ They are a good team, we almost operate on similar philosophies and the times we have faced them have not been easy. “
