LLB Academic who arrived in the country on Thursday are eager to extend their perfect start in bid to reach the first round.
Coach Michel Tuhabonye said on Friday, “We will play a good game without any fear or pressure. The first leg was poorly played but since we have a 1-goal cushion, I think it is going to be abit easier for our side but we must not give much respect to Police FC,”
“It is a return leg, so we must be very careful and avoid any mistakes that can cost a place in the enxt round,” added Tuhabonye.
