Earlier this week, UPDF FC head coach Kefa Kisala opened up about the congested StarTimes Uganda Premier League fixture schedule noting that it is becoming ‘too much for the players’.
And a few days, Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa has also highlighted similar sentiments. Bbosa made the comments after his side’s 1-0 victory over Busoga United at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku on Friday evening.
“We have managed to win that is the most important thing but when you look at the fixture, it is too congested,” Bbosa told the club’s media after the game.
“We are playing after every two days, now like today, we surely did not play well because the truth is the players are fatigued.”
“These players are not machines they are also human beings and because they are tired, that is why the game today was too slow but I am satisfied with the result,” he added.
Frank Kalanda was once again the match winner with a 23rd minute penalty taking his tally to four goals this season after Eric Kambale was fouled in the area by Busoga goalkeeper Rogers Omedwa.
The three crucial points took Express momentarily to the top of the table for on 28 points, a point above Vipers SC who are on 27 points with a game in hand. The Venoms play against Mbarara City FC on Saturday, March 6.
Busoga remain 14th on five points from the 12 league games they have played so far this season.
Up next for the Red Eagles is UPDF FC on Tuesday, March 9 while Busoga will host fellow strugglers MYDA FC on the same day.
