The Soldiers are gearing up for their Caf Confederation Cup match against Egyptian titans Smouha and head coach Benjamin Nyangweso wants to keep his squad as fit as possible ahead of the encounter.
“It is important that we keep the concentration and fitness at 100 percent because we are in for a very tough assignment. So far, we have done well and training is going on without a hitch.”
AFC Leopards, on the other hand, have league kick-off in their minds and will want to face the season with full force, many friendly matches being their only way to keep fit as they wait. They lost to Nakumatt in their recent friendly match and they will be surely out to redeem themselves with the Ulinzi Stars tie.
However, Ulinzi Stars beat National Super League side KCB by a solitary goal on Saturday, a result Coach Nyangweso wants to build on.
“We played very well especially in the second half when all the first team players came in. We created chances which is something good and now we ought to work on our finishing. The match against AFC will be important because they are tougher opponents and they will give us a picture of where we are,” he told the club;s official website.
The Soldiers will jet out of the country for the continental match on Tuesday, March 7, three days to the match-day.
