Not so often does Express Football Club created chances and waste them in equal measure especially under Wasswa Bossa at the helm.
On Wednesday against KCCA FC at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium Wankulukuku, their one-all draw in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League is one that Express and Bossa had the opportunity to put Express to the sword.
Unfortunately, they wasted chance after chance against a KCCA FC side that played without intent, purpose, character, urgency you name it.
Express didn’t only create chances, they also bossed and bullied KCCA FC off possession the hosts used the ball better.
Unmarked Godfrey Lwesibawa would have given the Wankulukuku side the lead as early as the second minute, he opted to chest control the ball instead of heading on at goal.
Eric Kambale then had his chance, he was let loose against KCCA FC captain Charles Lukwago, he beat him with his ground shot, but Peter Magambo had given his skipper enough cover and cleared off the line.
It was in added time that Express eventually found a breakthrough, off a Lwesibawa set-piece, unmarked Kambale tapped home.
Express introduced Muzamir Mutyaba and Mahad Kakooza for Charles Musiige and Daniel Shabena respectively.
Mutebi responded by introducing Juma Balinya and Andrew Kigozi for Bright Anukani and Keziron Kizito as they tried to get back and avoid a fourth straight loss.
But the day belonged to Express, George Ssenkaba alone would have scored a second-half hat-trick but he had left his scoring boots home.
Kambale too had enormous opportunities to increase on his tally but struggled to find the back of the net, on other occasions Lukwago came to the rescue of his teammates.
Kalanda had another one-on-one opportunity, he looked on as his looping effort flew over the bar.
Lwesibawa buried his head in his hands as his free header rattled the woodwork before KCCA FC cleared their area.
In the 87th minute, Kakooza cleared out for a corner, Hassan Musana swang it in as Charles Lwanga drew level for the visitors.
