MUKONO - Uganda Christian University (UCU) ladies volleyball club will host the first 2018-2019 season university volleyball derby game against Nkumba ladies Wednesday in Mukono.

UCU ladies who had a good start into the season last weekend will face Nkumba's A and B sides that have played more games both locally an internationally.

Nkumba have played African club championships, Genocide Memorial Tournament (GMT) and All Africa University Games that ended over the weekend and emerged champions on both GMT and Africa University Games.

This has given the Entebbe based side convincing experience and exposure over UCU who have played fewer games on the local soil.

However, UCU team coach Protus Soita has vowed to stage a competitive fight to earn points from Nkumba who still stand as favourite in the league.

"We need clear points from today's games though the side we are playing is very good but we still need to play our game and emerge victors," Soita said.

Both UCU and Nkumba ladies have faced each other before during the Nkumba Open where the latter beat UCU 3-1.
