The duo will square off in the return leg of the semi-final clash on Thursday at the Mutesa II Wankulukuku stadium.

Nkima has the early advantage having won 1-0 during the first leg played last Wednesday at the same venue.

New Police FC recruit Robert Ssentongo Junior scored the priceless goal in the first leg.

Andy Ssali, head coach for Nkima Clan believes they have what it takes to qualify for the finals, but warns his charges to guard against complacency.

“We have the advantage but it should not be taken for granted. We have to protect the lead and this comes with risks. Therefore, I urge my players to play with caution and endeavour to kill off the game with an early goal,” Ssali, a son to the legendary 1978 AFCON Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Paul Ssali said.

His counterpart at Ffumbe, Richards Kansole as confidence that they can overcome the first leg loss;

“Like they managed to win 1-0, we can also score more than once and qualify. The game is still open and we are not yet out” Kansole remarked.
