Mbarara in Nkumba test

Nkumba return to action this afternoon looking to close the gap on leaders Kampala in the University Soccer League. Currently third on the table with 18 points, Nkumba host Mbarara University of Science and Technology (Must).
Although they lost the first leg encounter 5-1, Must come into this fixture with some confidence after they recovered from two goals down to earn a draw against Makerere University last week.
“Winning is everyone’s priority and that’s what we will be looking for when we go to Nkumba,” Must coach Ali Toboley said. “I can assure our fans that we won’t be humiliated again.” Nkumba University, however, won’t be in compromising mood as anything less than a win will reduce their chances of winning the title this year.
“I know it will be a challenging game and we won’t take it for granted,” Nkumba sports tutor Patrick Ssebuliba said ahead of the clash with seventh-placed Must (four points).
Meanwhile, on Thursday, the much improved Uganda Martyrs University Nkozi, ended their losing streak with a home 1-all draw against Makerere University. It was the first time Nkozi earned a point in the league since last year. Nkozi had gone 18 games without a win or draw.
