Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic says he is working round the clock to have a build-up game before traveling to face Ghana on September 5th in a 2015 AFCON qualifier at the Baba Yara Sport Stadium.

“We need to get some playing time in the legs of the players ahead of this Group E encounter. It will be very important for my players,” Sredojevic told on Tuesday.

The coach, however, said he and the FA are yet to conclude anything with some of the teams they could play.

Sredojevic, who returned to Uganda on Monday, said he is doing the planning for his team ahead of the big game.

Fresh from participating at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the Black Stars will be eager to start with victory at home.

In their last meeting at the same Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, the Cranes managed a 1-1 draw.

Assan Pitcen Bajope netted the goal for the Cranes, while Charles Amoah scored for the Black Stars.

    nothing is impossible with soccer! if the cranes can only opt for good friendlies {challenging teams} which can help to identify and polish weak points in the team, it will mark a good start with a draw or even a 1-0 win at baba {Ghana}
