Kampala Queens assistant coach Shafik Mutebi is optimistic his team has the ability to bounce back in their next games despite a heavy defeat to Kawempe Muslim on Monday.
Kawempe Muslim obliterated Kampala Queens, winning the game played at the FUFA Technical Centre 4-0 to earn early advantage in group 1.
Mutebi insists the team will rectify the mistakes committed today and make quick amends in their next game.
“This is not the result we anticipated for but I concede Kawempe Muslim took the day. They got their chances and utilized them. On the other hand, we created some but we were not clinical and that was the difference. I believe we have the ability to bounce back in our next game,” he said.
He further added that they will need to work on the defensive lapses that cost them the game against Kawempe Muslim.
“We have to improve in the way we defend. Some of the goals we conceded were avoidable and if we work on that then we shall definitely have a better outlook in the next game.”
Despite spending three weeks in camp at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru, Kampala Queens seemed unfit and lacked coordination especially going forward.
They will return to action on Wednesday against Uganda Martyrs High School Lubaga who won 1-0 against Makerere University.
