Nsumba positive ahead of return



URA midfielder Augustine Nsumba is confident the tax collectors will beat Cameroon’s Coton Sport to progress to the first round of the Caf Champions League.

The Ugandans managed a goalless draw in Cameroon on Sunday to keep the tie alive ahead of the return leg in Kampala on March 2.

“It was a tough match but we played well,” Nsumba, who captained the tax collectors on the day, told a local radio that did the match commentary.

“We were told if we could get a draw it would be good enough and we got it. So we promise Ugandans victory in Kampala if we are to go to the next round.”

Although the tie remains delicately poised, it was an encouraging one for the Ugandans at a place they were thrashed 3-0 on their last visit to the same opposition in 2007.

The hosts will, however, feel hard-done by several wasted chances, especially in the second half, where URA goalkeeper Allan Owiny, arguably man of the match, put up a string of saves to keep the visitors in it.
