Uganda Cranes could be having an advantage in the CHAN Qualifier tie against Tanzania following the first leg victory but coach Milutin Sredojevic is not taking any chances.

The Serbian tactician known by many as Micho has continued to preach his charges against complacency.

Coach Milutin Sredojevic passed on instructions in training.

“Football is a game where anything can happen. We won the first game but they (Tanzania) can also come here and win. That is what the players must know and put full focus on Saturday’s game,” he said.

Micho also indicates Tanzania comes in a different form, having a new coach and definitely a change in approach.

“The coming of Honour Janza as a new coach means a change in so many things. He is a coach highly respected and I know he will come to try and upset so we must be ready for such moments.” Micho added.

Travis Mutyaba came off the bench and scored the sole goal at Benjamin Mkapa Stadium on Sunday to give Uganda the advantage.

It should be noted that the winner on aggregate between Uganda and Tanzania will qualify for next year’s CHAN tournament in Algeria.

The camp was on Wednesday boosted with the arrival of three players. Muhammad Shaban and George Kasonko who were part of the initial squad that was summoned but did not travel to Tanzania are back while Ibrahim Orit has been called to offer competition in the forward positions.
