Wakiso Giants head coach Douglas Bamweyayana regrets the wasted scoring opportunities by his side after registering a two-all draw against SC Villa at the Kabaka Kyabagu Stadium in Wakiso on Wednesday. The draw was the sixth in seven league games played so far.
The purple sharks dominated possession and were able to score two goals through striker Kipson Atuhairwe in the 11th minute and an own goal from Villa’s Joseph Nsubuga in the 28th minute.
“This is one of the most painful draws one can ever have, I think we could easily score 12 or so goals,” Bamweyana said after the game before adding.
“We wasted a lot of chances because in the first half alone we could have scored three, eight or more in the second half. We got a lot of chances to score, I do not know maybe it wasn’t our day,” he added.
After failing to capitalize from their dominance that much, Wakiso were on the other hand hurt defensively in the second period of the game with the Jogoo coming from two goals down to salvage a point.
Salim Abdallah pulled a goal back for Edward Kaziba’s side in the 53rd minute. Salim was at it against netting the equalizer for Villa in time added on hence completing his brace and salvaging a point for his side on road.
“Yes we wasted a lot of chances but still we had gotten a healthy lead of 2-0 which could have won us the game we only had to show a little bit of composure and maturity in defence.”
“We errored here and there, kicking the balls direct to them in our own area but on a general note they never deserved to take anything away from this game,” Bamweyana concluded.
The Giants have won once this season and therefore seat 11th on the 16-team log on nine points while a hard-fought point took Villa on 11 in the seventh position.
Bamweyana and his side visit URA FC next on Saturday, February 20 whereas the 16-time StarTimes Uganda Premier League champions host struggling Kitara on the same day.
