FUFA BIG LEAGUE.
Mbale Heroes Vs Young Elephants FC
Time : 4:00 pm
Venue: Mbale City Stadium.
Mbale Heroes Football club hope to bounce back to winning ways in BetPawa Big League when they host Young Elephants at Mbale City stadium in afternoon of Sunday, 22nd October 2023.
Mbale Heroes were denied a second consecutive win in the season after Mwanje Samuel snatched the late equalizer for Jinja North FC (1-1) in their previous game played at Bugembe stadium.
Asaph Mwebaze’s coached side has only managed only a one win and three draws in his opening four games in the season.
Meanwhile, Young Elephants FC has lost all their opening four games and still at the bottom of a 15 team table.
Mwebaze is saying that they are not going to underestimate their opponents despite the fact that they have not picked a point in the season.
“It can give you hope but sometimes it will give you false hope because they are also looking for their first win. The onus is on us to make sure we keep our head in the right place,to continue doing the right things and continue being solid like we have been in four games,we can easily make it an easy evening but we don’t want to understimae our opponents because they are also participates. They will also come fighting” Asaph Mwebaze told the media.
The two times Uganda cup champions have only managed to score two goals, one coming from Herbert Kibirango and the other from Gerld Ogweti.
“It’s not yet a concern because most of strikers are just getting in tandem with the league .they are getting aclamatised with the league ,We have Akram a, very young striker and Nsimbe, experienced but still getting into shape,am sure more games will get them scoring and we are trying to put him them into shape but hopefully on Sunday,we can start scoring” Said Coach Asaph Mwebaze.
