Kirinya-Jinja S.S head coach Charles Ayiekho Lukula has revealed that his side played their encounter against Masavu in the Uganda Premier League as a cup final.
The visitors won 1-0 and in an exclusive interview with Airtel Football, Ayiekho said they prepared for the match because it was a do or die.
We came knowing that we are playing a cup final.
The match against Masavu meant a lot to us in this campaign and confidence to the team players
Against Bright Stars in the away loss we had, we managed to score.
Now, I told the players to score again and we did just that. We scored an early goal and defended well up to the end.
Ayiekho believes his club is good enough for a top 5 finish by the end of the season in May 2018.
