Emmanuel Alex Wasswa has given his thoughts ahead of a key trip to the Arena Of Visions for the second leg of the round of 32 Uganda Cup Fixture against Ndejje University F.C.
After playing 47 minutes in the shock first leg 0-1 home loss to Ndejje, the former Ndejje midfielder asserts that the Jogoos are going to Ndejje with a stronger mindset in order to overturn the first leg deficit.
“We are very prepared for the second leg against Ndejje. The technical team has intensified the training sessions in a bid to overturn our first leg loss. We have worked on different areas of our play that is; shooting, crossing, positioning and more. The task ahead of us of eliminating Ndejje needs to create multiple chances throughout the whole 90 minutes,” explained Wasswa about how the team has prepared for the game.
The Jogoos come into this fixtures with two consecutive away wins this season that were against MYDA and Bright Stars respectively. Going into a must-win away fixture, the recent rejuvenation in our away form is a very vital boost to the team.
“Going to secure an away victory with a goal cushion of two or more from Ndejje is an opportunity for us to stay in the Cup this season. We are fortunate that this season’s Uganda Cup format provides a two-legged challenge. This a golden opportunity for us to make amends for the first leg slip.
“With all the training we have carried out this week and without any fresh injuries to destabilize the team, I am very confident we will come out on top of this fixture,” concluded second captain Emmanuel Alex Wasswa.
Striker Ronald Olaki returned to training on Tuesday. He has trained progressively with the first team and he is available for selection.
Pacey winger Sadam Masereka also recovered very well from a knock sustained during the league visit to MYDA F.C.
Benson Muhindo continues his rehabilitation.
The game starts at 4 pm Ugandan Time and due to the strict COVID-19 pandemic standard operating procedures, away fans will not be allowed into the stadium.
