Freda Ayerango, the Uganda Martyrts HS Assistant Coach.

Uganda Martyrs High School LFC is still optimistic of sealing qualification into the Championship playoffs of the FUFA Women Super League despite suffering a setback on Wednesday.

In a game where they produced numerous scoring chances, it was Kampala Queens that took the three points with a late winner coming from Rukia Namubiru.

Freda Ayerango, the assistant coach at Uganda Martyrs believes the ball is still in their coat with one game to play in group 1.

“It is disappointing that we failed to pick a good result today despite creating several chances. I think the players fails to show calmness in front of goal and that cost us,” she said in the post-match press briefing.

“We definitely still have a chance to qualify and all we have to do is win our last game. We have two days to plan and see how best we can improve.”

Uganda Martyrs will return to action on Saturday, 24th April against Tooro Queens who will play Kampala Queens a day before.

No Cutting edge

If there is anything that Uganda Martyrs will have to improve prior to the final group game, it will have to be effectiveness in scoring.

In the three games played so far, the Lubaga based outfit have created numerous goal attempts but their forwards have not been sharp enough to put them away.

Against Kampala Queens alone, Catherine Nagadya had two glorius attempts go wide while Spencer Nakacwa at the death of the clock failed to tap home into an empty net.

Thursday will be a rest day but action will resume on Friday with Kawempe Muslim facing Makerere University while Kampala Queens will be up against Tooro Queens.
