FUFA Women Super League: Uganda Martyrs braced for Kampala Queens challenge as Kawempe’s upturn faces Makerere test

FUFA Women Super League enters matchday 13 this weekend with five games lined up and as always the games are expected to offer thrilling action.

Whereas the League title race is virtually over, the battle for safety is intense with about eight teams in the relegation mix.

Uganda Martyrs returned to winning ways last weekend against She Corporate and will be oozing with confidence going into Saturday’s clash against leaders Kampala Queens.

Coach Edward Kasozi believes the win gives them confidence going into the game against Kampala Queens.

“We feel motivated after picking victory over She Corporate. This gives us confidence heading into the game against Kampala Queens.” He stated.

Uganda Martyrs are second on the log on 22 points, 12 behind leaders Kampala Queens and victory for the latter will but seal the title race bearing in mind there are only six games to the end of the season.

Kampala Queens on the other hand come to Lubaga on the back of a draw with Makerere University, the first time they lost points this season.

Coach Hamza Lutalo is unfazed by the recent blip and is optimistic his charges will return to the rails come this weekend.

The reverse fixture in Kabojja ended in a 4-1 win for the Queens of Soccer.

In the other fixtures lined up, Kawempe’s recent resurgence will be put to test this Sunday as they take on stubborn Makerere University.

The Warriors have had a remarkable run in the second round, winning two and drawing the other and coach Moses Nkata attributes this performance to different factors.

“When we went into the break, we looked at some of the challenges and I’m happy that some have been addressed and that explains our performance in the second round.”

“Makerere are a boggy side and getting a point off Kampala Queens tell you how tough they are hard to overcome. But I’m confident the players will do the job and secure maximum points.” He said.

Fred Ndawula the Makerere coach is equally confident going into this game having picked a point off table leaders Kampala Queens.

The first leg encounter between Kawempe and Makerere ended in a one all draw.

In the other FUFA Women Super League games lined up this weekend, rejuvenated Rines make a long trip Masindi to take on Lady Doves, Asubo Gaforrd Ladies will hope to continue with their relegation fight as they play Olila High School in Soroti while the University derby between UCU Lady Cardinals and She Corporate pits two teams seeking to find stability.
