URA coach maintains it’s an open tie



Paul Nkata, the URA coach, is not being swayed by the tag of home team, insisting the Saturday continental fixture against Coton Sport is very much still alive.

The Ugandans enter the return leg of the Caf Champions League preliminary round at Namboole with the scores tied a 0-0.

That scoreline registered in Cameroon close to two weeks ago means for URA to progress to the first round, they must avoid a scoring draw or must beat Coton Sport.

“It’s still an open tie which is far from done,” said Nkata as the team entered residential training in the Eastern Ugandan town of Jinja on Wednesday.

“But now it’s in our hands. We respect our opponents because they didn’t give us an easy game in Cameroon but now it’s our chance to knock them out.”

The last time the two met in Kampala was in 2007 Champions League, with the game ending goalless.
