“The players have been trained to handle such situations, like you have seen in the last three games we have played, they have been tough games but we have been able you come out with a point on two occasions and a win.”
“Mbarara are not third by mistake, Bright Stars is one of roughest teams in the league, so was Onduparaka but it’s experience and Maturity that got us the results off them,” Byekwaso added.
The former KCCA FC midfielder will hope that the same experience and maturity will be key when they host BUL.
