Masaba: We must respect Cotton Sport

Uganda Revenue Authority FC skipper Simeon Masaba has said although they respect and rate the Cameroonian side Cotton Sport FC so highly, they must look for early goals when they clash against them on Saturday in the return Leg of the CAF Orange Champions League.

After settling for a goalless draw in Cameroon, the two teams clash again on Saturday at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole. But this time the match must have a winner to progress to the next round.

Masaba, who has recovered from a fever, and trained with the team at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole this afternoon told Uganda Radio Network that he is very ready and rearing to go come Saturday.

Masaba assured URA fans and Ugandans that he is fully fit after his bout of illness.  The defender also features for the Uganda Cranes.

Speaking about the opponents, Masaba asaid they are a very strong team that deserves a lot of respect. He explained that they managed a draw against them on their home turf because of lots of discipline and listening to the coach. He said this is the same discipline they must display at Namboole to ensure  they  score as many goals as possible because the pressure will be on URA since they will be playing at home.

In 2007 Cotton Sport held URA to a barren draw in Kampala before winning 3-0 in the return Leg at the same stage of this tournament.
