Ulinzi Stars coach Benjamin Nyangweso has urged his players in attacking department to rise up and cover the void left by striker John Makwatta.
The 2016 Golden Boot winner quit the soldiers for a Slovakian outfit this season, leaving his former side shocked. Nyangweso says he is sure he have players, who can rise for the occasion.
“He (Makwatta), has been a good player, very consistent and hardworking, we could not have allowed him to leave but we had no option. It is for his good and that might be one thing he needs. We have good players, who can replace him and help the team move forward.
“The main challenge is for them to prove that they are capable of fitting in his shoes and score goals.”
Nyangweso is currently away in Egypt with his team, ready to play Smouha in Caf Confederations Cup competition.
