Ahead of Saturday’s Pepsi University Football League clash between Makerere University Business School (MUBS) and Muni University, the former’s head coach Charles Ayiekoh, has warned the latter may prove a tough nut to crack.
Whereas MUBS occupy the apex of Group B with six points, Muni lie rock-bottom without a single point in two games.
The Arua based institution lost to both, University of Kisubi and Nkumba University in their opening matches and, the MUBS tactician feels they could use this desperation to cause an upset at the Muni Grounds.
“A number of people may think the game against Muni will he easy, because of their position on the table but, that will be different,” Ayiekoh spoke to the media on Friday.
“After losing their two games, they will want to use that as motivation and upset us and so, we have to be ready for a difficult match.”
“However, we have prepared well, traveled on time and have enough experience to pick maximum points tomorrow,” he added.
An away victory will stretch MUBS’ perfect start to the 2022 edition and brighten their chances of progress to the knockout stage.
On the other hand, a home loss will leave Muni bottom and dent their chances of making it to the knockouts.
Only one team is assured of progress to the Round of 16, from the 12 groups. Four best placed sides will be added to the dozen to complete the round.
