Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa says scoring more goals remains top priority as his side continue to surge up the table.
The Red Eagles cruised to their second consecutive victory scoring four goals as they thrashed newly promoted side MYDA FC 4-1 at the King George IV Stadium in Tororo.
Bbosa has already identified his side’s weak point which is converting chances into goals despite Express enjoying their best run in front of goal.
They have scored three or more goals in consecutive games for the first time since Bbosa returned to the club in February 2020.
Their tally of 16 goals in nine games is the fifth highest in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
But, Bbosa thinks that his side should have scored more at this stage only if they were a little bit more ruthless in attack.
“Obviously we are happy with the victory, our second victory in a row,” Bbosa told media after the game.
“The good thing is that we have won by a big margin and it shows that we have moved a step regards trying to put away our scoring chances more consistently,” he noted.
The former midfielder also added: “Previously it was disappointing (not scoring) with the number of chances that we wasted per game.”
“But if we are putting chances away then we can take pride in the work that we have done.”
“But I insist that we are not yet fully adept to what we should be doing in attack because we still lack that extra bit of concentration and desire to kill off games with some of the chances we waste,” he added.
Two goals apiece from George Ssenkaaba and Godfrey Lwesibawa lifted the Red Eagles too their third way win of the season.
Ssenkaaba opened the scoring in the 22nd minute after Eric Kambale picked him up with a threaded through ball.
Lwesibawa added Express’ second in the 58th minute with a smart finish over MYDA goalkeeper Isaac Osikol after clever interplay with Charles Musiige.
Ssenkaaba added a third two minutes later, beating his marker for power and pace onto Enock Walusimbi’s long ball to score his fifth goal of the season.
Lwesibawa completed a dominant performance for Express with another lob over the goalkeeper with 10 minutes to go. Eric Mutebi scored a late penalty for MYDA to deny Express their fourth clean sheet of the season.
Express climbed to second strongly affirming their stake as title favourites. They return home to face unbeaten Wakiso Giants at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku on Friday.
