After falling to Tunisian giants Carthage in straight sets in the opening game of the Africa Clubs Championship on Thursday, Ndejje Elites have to defeat Ivory Coast giants ASEC in their second game to stand a chance of making the quarter finals.
Head coach Johnson Kawenyera told Kawowo Sports that his side had practically done nothing in game against the host team and believes the side has nothing much to do but start playing volleyball.
“It was terrible in the first game because we did nothing,” Kawenyera said after the opening game.
Playing the opening match of the tournament against the host team, Ndejje were always going to find it tough but Kawwenyera believes they could have done better.
Against ASEC, Kawenyera will hope for better fortunes on Sunday as the side looks to achieve their target of making the last 8.
Drawn in Pool A, the Ugandan outfit still have to face Ivory Coast giants ASEC as well as Injis of Cameroon.
Ndejje, who made their debut on the continent in 2013, are Uganda’s only representatives at the event and will be looking to beat their best performance of 8th place.
Saidat Nnungi, Jesca Kaidu, Jepkirui, Christine Alupo, Joan Tushemereirwe, Sharon Amito and Mwamula are some of the key players who have to pull up their socks if the team is to make it out of the group.
Apart from ASEC, Ndejje still have to play Cameroonian side Injis in their last group game.
