Arua Hill Coach Hussein Mbalangu says his team begin their Big League season well prepared and composed as time allowed for all necessary preparations.

The Leopards host Blacks Power FC tomorrow at Barifa Play Grounds in their first fixture of the 2020/21  StarTimes FUFA Big League as they commence their journey in the campaign they hope will end with promotion to the top flight level the next season.

“We have prepared very well because we’ve taken five months to do preparations, so now we are prepared and composed,” the Arua Hill boss said.

“So our preparations are good because we’ve been doing each and everything as there was so much time to do,”

“We had enough time to assess the players and now we’re able to select the best amongst them.” He added

Arua Hill has been mingled in Elgon group with couple of ambitious opponents including Maroons FC, Gaddafi FC, Mbale Heroes, Paidha Black Angels, Calvary FC, Kataka FC and Blacks Power FC.

Mbalangu yet is keen to point out three groupmates who he judges will be serious challengers. He nevertheless states ‘to be champions, you must beat the best’.

“Elgon group is good and tough but there’re four teams fighting for promotion. We have Gaddafi, we have Maroons, Mbale Heroes who were eliminated in the finals of the playoffs and us Arua Hill, but to be a champion, you must beat the best team.” He claimed.

The Arua Hill gaffer who feels his side is at advantage for playing first game at home while reacting to the Thursday fixture also showed consideration in meeting expectations of fans.

“The good thing is we are starting at home so we need to give our fans joy and moral because they are already hyped up and being at home, the best thing to do is win it so as to meet the fans expectations,

“They’ve been seeing us preparing, playing trial matches so we built a winning capacity at home because out of the 31 friendly games, we’ve lost only one friendly game which means we have the winning culture at home.” He summarized.
