Pre-Match insight: Maroons FC VS Blacks Power on Matchday VII
- Following a tough loss to Vipers SC in UGANDA PREMEIR LEAGUE, Maroons FC return back to action against Blacks Power FC on Match Day VII in the first round of the season.
It's important to note that Maroons have a theoretical advantage over Blacks Power having won three and lost two of the last five bitter encounters between the two sides.
Maroons FC remain un beaten in the last three home appearances having won twice against KCCA FC (1-0) & Busoga United (5-0) and drawn once to joint table leaders Wakiso Giants (0-0)
at the Luzira Prisons Stadium.
While speaking to www.maroonsfc.co.ug, Center Back and Vice Captain Patrick Bayiga describes the tie as very important to steer the team forward, calling upon all his team mates to protect the brand of the club with sporting success.
He added that, "Blacks Power is not an easy team given their strength in recent games, we are bouncing back from a bitter loss to Vipers SC. Going back into the previous game, we lost not because we were weak but we really didn't work enough as expected, some few errors costed us but that's football, it was so h
ard for us to take on that day."
"We have now prepared so well and rectified some few mistakes, the coaches have been their for us, working on individual performances further more. Everyone available is now in good shape and the boys are positive that we are winning this for our fans tomorrow."
"I urge all the supporters to come around to witness this and cheer up the team; expect fireworks performance from us tomorrow."
Assistant coach Simon Peter Ojok, "It's a big game for us because a positive result will push us forward, we have prepared so well for this. Tactically, we are trying to improve on the finishing of majority of our forwards putting emphasis on Fred Amaku, Solomon Walusimbi, Lawrence Tezikya, Abraham Tusubira, Samson Kigozi and Arafat Kakonge; I believe they are all young and talented to tear any team apart"
"In the next game, we expect alot of skills and intelligence being introduced in all positional plays."
"Our opponents are also a very good side, they have players who have been in our ranks and they understand us so well. Especially Bronson and Baden will want to prove a point but we are aware of the threat that they will pose since they have scored in most of their recent games."
"Maroons is playing excellent football on both ends these days, their midfield still looks just as good as it has always been, Maroons FC have improved enough to put up a big fight today."
We call upon our fans to turn up in big numbers to support the team.
