“The game was really tough but the good thing, we managed to score away goals. We are confident that we have the potential to win at home. We just need to beat our opponents 1-0 and we make it to the third round,” stated Bulega as her side prepares for return leg this Saturday at StarTimes stadium, Lugogo.
 
The Crested Cranes who jetted into the country on Thursday from Addis Ababa never gave up despite the home side leading 3-0. They kept looking for an away goal and their efforts paid off with two late strikes.
