Makerere University Business School (MUBS) head coach Charles Ayiekoh Lukula and his Kampala University (KU) counterpart Vincent Tumusiime seemed contented after the Pepsi University Football League tie played on Wednesday.

MUBS and KU played to a goalless draw in both sides’ third encounter in Group D, it was KU’s third straight goalless draw in the competition.

“The game was technically good but tactically it wasn’t as the boys failed to score from very many chances created through the game,” KU’s Tumusiime told

“We are going to revise our mistakes as we are heading into the second round of the tournament as players always wake up in this round,” he added.

Meanwhile, Mub’s Ayiekoh wasn’t happy about the wasted chances but was contented with a point earned in a situation many thought he had lost two.

“The game was good though both teams wasted a lot of chances. The two teams are the giants of the University Football League, so they played with respect towards each other, but the draw has worked for us because we remained on the top of the group.”

“Our chances of making it to the knock out stages are still high because we are at the top and we are looking forward at collecting maximum points when we visit them in our next game,” Ayiekoh added.

A draw left MUBS on the top of the table with five points from three games played, Kampala University, on the other hand, remained second with three points from three games.

UCU defeated IUEA in Mukono in the other Group D tie on Thursday, brightening their chances of making it to the knockout stages of the tournament.
