She Mak’s head coach Fred Sendawula is already talking of winning the FUFA Women Cup after defeating Asubo Gafford Ladies 3-0 at the round of 16 on Sunday.
Prossy Nabukeera gave the home team the lead in the 6th minute after a goalkeeping lapse by Gafford goalkeeper Monica Abinyi.
Young star Catherine Nagadya doubled the lead in the 73rd minute before sealing the game just two minutes to the end as She Mak cruised to the next stage.
“Of course we are fighting to win the trophy though we still have to fight also for our place in the league because we are not far away from relegation,” Sendawula told www.football-256.com.
“I am proud of my players, they have followed my instructions, Gafford is a good team but to me they didn’t prepare enough because they thought we are a weak team.”
“Our problem has been scoring which we tried to work on and we have scored three, we also still have challenges like many teams in the league but we will rectify them,” he added.
Gafford ladies head coach Steven Wabwire, blamed his star players who failed to play to the expectations of the team.
“You have to lose a game like this when your star players fail to give their best as they are expected to and maybe having just eleven players on match day was also challenging because you can’t make a substitute when players a tired.
“We are out of women cup and our emphasis is to stay in the league because we are in relegation though it calls for hard work,” he said.
