After being ripped apart by City Oilers on Monday night, Ndejje University Angels will pull themselves together when they face Warriors on Friday night.

Angels who edged Oilers in the first round did not see what hit them in the 92-50 defeat at the Lugogo Indoor Stadium and will be hoping for a better outing tonight.

Walker Obedi – the man in charge at Ndejje – will hope Michael Otieno, Innocent Ochera, Ezra Numda as well as David Okello take the game to Warriors as Jeje Chaka and Owen Majok clean the boards.

Michael Bazangu and Amisi Saidi tormented Ndejje in the first round meeting with Warriors scoring 16 and 14 points respectively and combined for 22 rebounds in the the 72-53.

And coach Ronnie Mutebi will be hoping the pair turn in a similar effort coupled with a better out put from his guards Syrus Kiviiri and Mark Opio than they did in the loss to KIU Titans.

“We want to finish as high (on the table) as possible so we have to win our games,” said Mutebi.

In the other game of the day, KIU Titans will battle UCU Canons who fell to Falcons in their last outing.
