Kampala Queens will be looking to get back to winning ways when they host She Makerere in a crucial FUFA Women Super League matchday fifteen clash this Sunday morning at Lugogo.

The defending champions, Kampala Queens, are currently in a rut, having drawn their last three games. They’ll be hoping to reignite their title challenge with a victory against She Makerere.

The visitors, She Makerere, are also in a precarious position, hovering just above the relegation zone. They’ll be desperate for maximum points to boost their chances of staying in the top-flight.

Past Encounters

The first leg between these two sides ended in a thrilling 2-2 draw at Makerere. In their last five meetings, Kampala Queens have dominated, winning three times and drawing twice. They’ve also outscored She Makerere by a significant margin, netting 10 goals while conceding only four.

However, She Makerere come into the fixture with confidence after a 1-0 narrow victory over Wakiso Hill WFC in their last league game.

She Makerere’s star striker, Sharon Namatovu, will be looking to add to her impressive tally of seven goals this season, keeping her golden boot dream alive.

Team News

Kampala Queens’ second assistant coach, Juma Sekiyivu, expressed confidence in his team’s ability to bounce back and close the gap on table leaders Kawempe Muslim who now have an eight points advantage.

He acknowledged their recent struggles with goalscoring but emphasized that they’ve been working hard to address that issue in training.

Kampala Queens will be bolstered by the return of their head coach, Charles Ayeikoh, who missed their last game due to commitments with Uganda U16 Women’s National Team. Defender Sumaya Komuntale and forward Elizabeth Nakigozi remain sidelined with injuries.

For She Makerere, defender Winnie Nakanwagi is a doubt due to an ankle injury. However, they’ll be boosted by the return of their captain, Josephine Ndagire, who missed their last game through suspension.
