Nsimbe Wants To Change Home Fortunes

As KCCA take on Zambia’s Nkana FC in the return leg of the Caf Champions League first round at Namboole on Saturday, one statistic will be bothering the Ugandans.

NsimbeThe Ugandan champions have lost their last two home Champions League games. The Yellow Brigade lost 1-0 to El Merreikh in 2009 and were consequently eliminated after a 1-1 reverse result in Khartoum.

But the Sudanese were the ones on the receiving end this year in terms of the bigger picture, crashing out 3-2 on aggregate. However, while KCCA won 2-0 away, they still lost 2-1 at home. That is a trend bothering the KCCA faithful and coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe.

“I’m aware and I have been telling the boys,” Nsimbe tells SuperSport.com ahead of the clash, adding, “I have told them that ‘look, we have been doing well to get results but we have made happy only the supporters, not Ugandans.

“So we must make both the KCCA supporters and all Ugandans happy. We need to win at home. I mean, if you can go to Sudan and beat Merreikh 2-0, go to Zambia and draw 2-2, why should you come home and fail to pick maximum points?”

Nkana have not lost a game to Ugandan opposition in eight meetings.
