"We have not given up yet," said UCU Coach Kintu Mwera as his side are hopeful of over turning a 3-0 deficit when they host Kampala University in the second leg of their quarter final of the Pepsi University Football League today.

This is UCU’s fourth appearance in the quarter-finals of the Pepsi University Football League and should they fail to overcome the two time champions KU, it also will be the fourth time they are being knocked out at the quarter-final stage and the third time consecutively.

Despite the statistics not favouring them, Mwera believes history is full of great comebacks such as the one he is expecting UCU to make.

"It’s going to be a very difficult game coming from three goals down but we are going to fight to the end. Football is football and anything can happen on the pitch,” he said.

His rival of the day, Kampala University coach, Vincent Tumusiime equally agrees that the tie is not over yet and has warned his boys to be alert.

“The game is not over yet. We still have to go to Mukono and get a good result like we did at Busitema. Everyone has to be very alert to defend and to take any chances we get to score,” he said.

Meanwhile, Bugema University became the first team to qualify for the semifinals of the tournament after they held IUIU to a one all draw in their second leg quarter final yesterday afternoon in Mbale.

Bugema, playing as the visiting side took the lead on the hour mark through Kambala Aldrine before IUIU's Mwanje Derrick equalized with four minutes to play.

Bugema were leading the first leg 1-0, therefore winning the tie 2-1 on aggregate.
