Maroons FC coach Asaph Mwebaze is confident his side will put their recent 2-1 drubbing by Kasese New Villa aside when they face visiting Artland Katale at their Luzira Prisons backyard on Thursday evening as the FUFA Big league returns to the fray once again with 7 fixtures across the country.
Mwebaze says it is a match they cannot afford to lose, given that their aim is yo close up on Elgon group leaders Kireka United after wasting their chance last week.
“We are prepared to fight to the end because we had anticipated that the race in this group would go down to the wire from the start of the season. We intend to win all the remaining home matches but do not consider any team as a weak opponent at this point,” Mwebaze said.
In the same group, high flying Kireka also face stern away test against the unpredictable Kirinya Jinja S.S side in Jinja. The host also from a moral boasting 2-1 victory over Artland last week and will look to build on that momentum.
In the Rwenzori group, leaders Water F.C will pray and play for a home victory at their Mengo S.S Stadium to ensure a lead extension since their arch rivals, The Saints F.C will not be in action.
