Uganda coach, Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has urged his charges to not dwell on recent gains against Ghana.
The two countries face off again in a Group D opener at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday.
The Serb is yet to lose to the Black Stars since arriving as coach of Uganda.
From 4pm at Stade Port Gentil, Micho’s Cranes will be fighting to extend their unbeaten run against Ghana to four matches. Two of three encounters the coach has taken charge of ended up in a draw and the other a defeat for the Black Stars.
“History will not play tomorrow against Ghana,” he said at a pre-match conference in Port Gentil.
“The past three matches against Ghana will not count tomorrow (Tuesday),” he emphasized.
Micho believes his Uganda side is prepared enough to leave a mark at the Gabon tournament in their return to the finals after a 39-year break.
“Ugandans have been dreaming to be here. The boys are ready. We have no experience at Afcon finals but we have planned for the tournament.
“These boys have big hearts to play against the giants,” he noted.
Ghana failed to beat Uganda at home when they recently met in a 2018 World Cup qualifier about three months.
