Anything less than a win today will put a stop to Hima Cement Heathens’ hopes of winning the Nile Special Premier Rugby League title.
It is upon this that coach Muhammad Athio has cautioned his charges against complacency when they face relegated Walukuba Barbarians today at Kyadondo Rugby Club.
“Teams that are fighting relegation are always a problem. We are attacking Walukuba with full force because we need a bonus point,” Athio vowed.
The former champions cannot afford any mistake because every point counts now in their title bid.
“The boys know what is at stake. All our remaining games are like a final. There is no underestimating any team,” added the Heathens tactician added.
Cox Muhigwa, Michael Wokorach, Paul Masendi, Robert Masendi and Charles Uhuru are the key players for Heathens to rely on. Trailing with two points behind Kobs (68) who lost to Pirates on Saturday, Heathens needs three bonus point wins in their three remaining games to triumph.
