Second-placed Nkumba are desperate to bring their campaign back on track when they visit KIU in the University Football League today. After leading the league table for the entire first round, Nkumba were knocked off the top after dropping two points against Ndejje University last week.
Nkumba now trail leaders Kampala University (23) by two points but can return to the summit with victory. “We are going for maximum points,” Nkumba University sports tutor and coach, Patrick Ssebuliba said.
KIU have had a bad run so far, having lost 2-1 to KU last Friday at Villa Park. That loss also came on the heels of a 3-0 thrashing by Mubs at Nakawa.
KIU coach Livingstone Kyambadde, however, insists that his team has been playing well despite the losses. “Our problem has been with goalkeeping. We have a new goalkeeper who has been having a few challenges but he is now okay,” Kyambadde said. “We are still in the title race. We expect to win our remaining matches starting with today’s.”
