Kyambogo University will be buoyed by the fact that rivals MUBS have struggled to keep up at the summit this season.
Second round Thursday fixture:
Kyambogo v MUBS 4pm
KAMPALA - Kyambogo hope hit the ground running as the Pepsi University Football League resumes today.
The competition returns for the second round after a three-month hiatus.
Kyambogo are looking to further frustrate two-time champions MUBS to build on their impressive first round performance.
By the time the league broke off in May, they were top of Group B on seven points, while MUBS were third of the log.
The league of 16 teams is segmented into four groups comprising four teams.
Kyambogo will be buoyed by the fact that rivals MUBS have struggled to keep up at the summit.
And if things continue going south for the Nakawa-based side, reaching the knock-out stage will be beyond their reach.
In the first round, MUBS lost against YMCA, drew with Kyambogo and beat Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST).
YMCA are second of the group on four points, same points with MUBS, but with a better goal difference. MUST are bottom of the log, having picked up one point so far.
Ahead of today's game, Kyambogo's skipper Ramac Ashaba fancies his side's chances, considering they will be at home.
"We have not lost any game at home and a draw away with MUBS in the reverse fixture was good because we both needed the point," he said.
Meanwhile, despite their lacklustre position on the table, MUBS head coach Charles Ayiekoh remains resolute -- maintaining an air of confidence in the buildup.
“We need this game and my boys are very fit and hope to have the best result," he said.
