Isra Soccer academy head coach Isma Nkugwa believes his side has everything it takes to win against UCU Lady Cardinals in the FUFA Women’s Elite League in Mukono on Saturday.
The match important to the extent that a win for Isra will see them go top of the eight team log temporarily.
They will have to wait for Olila and Kampala Queens who have same points as UCU who will be playing on Sunday.
“We have not managed to win against UCU in our last three meetings, me and my players know that, it is mission possible many have done that,” Nkugwa told www.football-256.com.
“But I acknowledge that it is going to be a turf game for both teams, not us only but remember we have a good record away from home this season,” He added.
UCU’s head coach Peter Ssebulime talks of his being more than ready against an opponent who looks determined and resilient to pick a result in Mukono.
“We are ready for Isra because the league is the only tournament we do have to play and we have to win every game including that on Saturday.”
“Our key players are back from injuries and that will increase the level of competition among them which will help us take the three points,” He added.
