The going is tough, Simba Queens admit 

DESPITE his team’s perfect 2-0 victory over Amani Queens, Simba Queens coach, Charles Lukula admitted they have still a difficult situation to defend their championship.

Simba Queens are placed second in the race with 36 points, a point behind leaders JKT Queens who have bagged 37 points from 15- game outings.

Fountain Gate are third as Yanga Princess are placed fourth with 32 points after playing 14 matches.

Lukula said the second-round matches towards the end of the league have been difficult but he is relieved to see that they continue to get good results, something he said he is proud of.

“The second round has been difficult, there are teams fighting against relegation and others are engaged in a fierce battle for the championship and all these make league tough and highly challenging,” he said.

The Ugandan coach said the speed of their challengers JKT and Fountain is surprisingly good as they wish them to drop points in the remaining three matches.

“This year the champion will be declared after the end of all league matches. It is very difficult to predict now though we have three matches left,” he said.

Adding, he said playing against Fountain Gate and JKT has been like a final match hence they have been fighting not to lose a single point at this stage.

“In those three matches, we are obliged to prepare well because if we lose one of them, we will go down to the worst position and lose the title,” he said.

He urged his charges to have fitness so that they can continue winning the remaining three matches.

He said: “Those who are above us are not too far away since it is not a huge gap. If we win and they lose we will be able to take control of the league again and defend our title.”
