To Komakech,
the victory which is their third in 19 matches will inspire the team ahead of
the remaining matches.

I am grateful for my players for the spirited performance in the 1-0 win over Maroons. We played a team and we were determined. This away win has given us the confidence as we go to the next game against Tooro United. We shall ensure we fight exactly the way we did against Maroons so that we close the gap with the clubs that are also in the same struggle against relegation
