Coach reaping from early preps

Asaph Mwebaze, the Maroons coach, is confident they will “win something soon” if they continue their Bell Super League form.

The prisons side equaled KCC’s record of seven opening league victories in 2010/11 on Tuesday when they edged Bunnamwaya 1-0, thanks to Dickson Kigongo’s first half strike.

And Mwebaze attributes such blistering form to appropriate preparation. “We had a good preseason,” the coach told SuperSport.com, adding, “And the organisation by my staff has been up there. I can’t complain.”

Asked where he sees his young but quickly maturing side in the next few years, Mwebaze was not chest-thumping, but he could not mask the faith he has in his outfit: “We shall win something soon” he responded.

After Tuesday’s victory, Maroons went eight points clear at the summit on 21. SC Villa, who play Bunnamwaya at Nakivubo on Saturday, are second n 13 points.
