BUL FC head coach Alex Isabirye has anticipated a tougher game against SC Villa.
“It’s not an easy game as we host SC Villa, we are both on top of the table and it looks like a final as we are all going to fight for maximum points though it won’t be an easy game but we are ready to fight for a win.”
“SC Villa has gone three games without conceding but we shall fight hard for us to win, we are in a better position as we are at the top of the table but that doesn’t mean that we have to win the trophy.” He added.
SC Villa coach Jackson Magera expects a tougher opponent than the ones they have faced so far.
“The camp is in a good mood and the players are well motivated as we are going to face a tough opponent who has been in the confederation cup but we have made plans for positive results in today’s game.”
“We call upon the fans to push the boys. We have the best fans and you can see how much they push the boys. So we call upon them to stay calm and God willing we shall put a smile on their faces,” said coach Jackson
“We have seen how BUL FC plays, how they behave when they don’t have the ball, and if we stick to our game plan we shall have positive results from the game.” He added
