Makerere University Business School (MUBS) coach Charles Ayiekoh says he is content with his team’s performances so far in the University Football League ahead of Wednesday’s Group D encounter against Kampala University (KU).

“This season we are doing much better than last season and we simply need to maintain the momentum. We have been training hard and the players are better prepared for the games and are working harder,” Ayiekoh said.

“This game against KU is going to be a tough one. They are a team with pedigree just like us, having been to the finals three times and lifted the trophy twice. So it is not going to be an easy game. We shall need to be at our best,” he added.

MUBS is top of the table with 4 points from 2 games while KU and UCU both have two points while IUEA is bottom with one point.

KU who are yet to find score a goal this season are optimistic that they will break the hoodoo this time around according to coach Vincent Tumusiime.

“MUBS has always been a tough team to play but I know that we shall be able to get a good result against them,” noted Tumusiime.

“Football has changed. In modern football, everyone can score and so the responsibility is on everyone, not just the strikers. The whole team needs to attack in unison and when an opportunity comes; whether you are a midfielder or defender, you take the chance or assist,” he added.

UCU hosts IUEA on Thursday while on Friday, KIU host Kumi University and Sunday sees Kyambogo host Busitema.
