Douglas Bamweyana does not think that KCCA were good enough to deserve a point from their 1-1 draw in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in Wakiso on Wednesday.
Wakiso who have won just one of their nine league games this season were ‘disappointed and gutted for dropping two points against an opponent who did not come to play, according to Bamweyana.
The hosts had better chances early on but fell behind through Samson Kigozi’s strike in the 40th minute. Kigozi had come on for the injured Brian Aheebwa in the 13th minute.
Despite drawing level five minutes later through Rahmat Ssenfuka’s penalty, the Purple Sharks failed to wrestle all three points from the former Ugandan champions.
Speaking after the game, Bamweyana was livid with his team saying: “We are disappointed (failing to win against) an opponent who didn’t come to play.”
“I thought it was an opportunity for us to get a result against KCCA which we failed to achieve,” he added.
Vianney Ssekajugo had the first real opportunity of the game but failed to cap a bright start to the game by Wakiso as he tapped over the crossbar.
Pius Kaggwa also drew a fine save from KCCA goalkeeper Charles Lukwago. Ibrahim Kasule and Yasin Mugume also squandered opportunities as Wakiso played to their third consecutive draw.
While Wakiso Giants have scored in all but two of their games this season, the failure to kill off games which has often hurt them this season is something that Bamweywana knows he needs his side to work on.
“It is something we should keep working on,” Bamweyana said of his side’s finishing, adding; “We appear to be lacking the break in the attacking third.”
“We create chances but we need to show more calmness when we have the ball, and I think we rush when we are in the possession.”
“The movement in the box ought to be better otherwise the fair share of all the phases of our play right from build-up are good.”
“But when we get to the most important element which is the finishing, that’s where we get gutted not to have balls crossing the line as often as you need to,” he continued.
Bamweyana who has seen his side collect only 11 points from a possible 27, will hope to see a reaction from his forwards when they visit Express at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku on Friday which will be followed by a home tie against struggling MYDA.
