Ndejje Elites need only a win at the 2017 African Women Club Championship to be the first side women to get out of group stage.

And that will heavily depend on the Elites' players and the team head coach Johnson Kawenyera to keep composure against INJS volleyball club on Monday.

"The girls were panicking in the first game we played and that is how we lost the first set badly. Although we recovered and started scoring, we could catch up," Kawenyera said after the straight set defeat against Carthage CFC) in their opening game.

Ndejje Elites recovered in their second group game on Sunday to beat Asec Mimosa of Ivory Coast 3-1 giving them a chance to advance to quarterfinals if they can win against INJS of Cameroon today.

"We have no pressure. We are going to play with a relaxed mind. That way we can achieve our target," Kawenyera whose target appears to shift from finishing among the last eight in the ranking to qualifying for the quarterfinals said.

Like was the case against Asec, Kawenyera will heavily rely on stability of team captain Belinda Jepkirui, Christine Alupo, Saidat Nnungi and youthful Sharon Amito to achieve results today. INJS lost their latest encounter to Asec 3-1.
