The last encounter between the two arch-rivals was when Kenya stood between Uganda and AFCON 2012. And they did a superb job; not that they were exceptionally good, but Uganda Cranes failed the test. That is in the past now.

Tomorrow the two teams lock horns at Mandela national stadium Namboole in a CECAFA group A tie.

Cranes tactician Bobby Williamson will have Emma Okwi and Brian Umony leading the hunt for goals having displayed splendid performances during the build up to the tournament. Bobby is exuding confidence in his defence that will be commanded by Isaac Isinde and Henry Kalungi.

Kenyan tactician James Nandwa assured Cranes he is back to terrorise Uganda Cranes and everyone of the participating teams. He assured journalists that he is heavily depending on a carefully assembled and lethal attacking outfit.

"I know we are not being considered among the favourites but many of the teams will sneeze sweat!" he vowed.

Kenya is banking on inform Enoch Agwanda, Edwin Lavatsa, Victor Ochieng and Michael Baraza to terrorise defences. The group comprises Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia and South Sudan.

Earlier in the morning at 9.30am South Sudan will take on Ethiopia

KICK OFF: Saturday 12.00pm
