There was nothing to show for Express FC as new Tactician George Ssemwogerere registered a loss in his maiden outing as Express coach in his second stint at the club in a coaching capacity.
Express lost to BUL 1-0 through second half substitute Muhindo Kambale, his effort in added time was a heartbreaker for many Express fans in Njeru and those who were following the game online.
The new tactician had a scapegoat in injured players whom he claims cost him the maximum points.
“I’m not disappointed with the results because a number of my first choice players haven’t featured, some because of injury others through suspensions,” Ssemwogerere told www.football-256.com after the final whistle.
Express FC played without their key players in Tony Odur, Eric Kambale, Michael Birungi and Badru Nsubuga.
The former club captain revealed that his first game was a real test that has helped him spot the areas to work on especially the striking line.
“We just need to keep on working hard and correcting our mistakes, this is not a bad team, we shall surely get better,” he added.
BUL FC tactician Peter Onen couldn’t hide his delight for picking maximum points from Express.
“It is always any coach’s wish to pick maximum points from any giant. The boys followed the instructions well, that’s why we managed to collect the maximum points,” Onen told this website.
Bul FC is now fourth on the league table with 30 points while Express FC are tenth with twenty one points.
