Ahead of the highly anticipated second round of the league, Simba tactician Morley Byekwaso is confident his side will turn things around and survive the drop.

The army side struggled in the first half of the season winning just twice and languishes in 14th position on the 16 team log.

However, with acquisition of over seven players in the window, the ex-SC Villa and KCCA midfielder expect a better show.

“In the first half of the season, we were short on quick players going forward,” he started. “It’s the reason we scored few goals but at the moment, we have players who can take us forward quicker,” he added.

Byekwaso adds that in the next round, the target is picking eight wins and survival will be done and dusted.

“Our target is picking maximum points from eight games. That will take us to at least 36 points and survival will be a guarantee then.”

The Bombo based side has recruited goalie Joseph Ssebuliba, defenders Brian Ochwo and Joseph Otieno, midfielders Moses Gaale and Charles Ssemanda in addition to veteran centre forward Godfrey Wakaza who had hung his boots.

Meanwhile, the side was ejected from Uganda Cup at the round of 64 after falling to Kira Young 5-4 on penalties following a barren draw.
