Express Football Club coach Matia Lule is confident his players will amen for the slim defeat suffered at KCCA and pick a result that takes them to the finals of the Uganda Cup.
The Red Eagles lost 3-2 to the Kasasiro Boys in the first leg of the semi-finals of the Uganda Cup and need a goal without conceding to reach their first final since 2007.
After the defeat, Lule said: “I think the two goals away give us hope.
“We have a big a chance at home and I have confidence we can overturn the result.”
Tom Masiko and Geoffrey Sserunkuma (double) ensured KCCA win but goals from Simon Sserunkuma and Allan Kyambadde gave the Red Eagles a lot of hope.
“I liked the fighting spirit from my players. They were always behind but never gave up. I don’t think we deserved to lose but that’s football sometimes.”
A draw will be enough for the Ugandan league champions KCCA reach the final for a third time in four seasons but must work their socks off.
