Following a 2-1 victory against URA FC in the first leg of the Stanbic Uganda Cup Round of 16 played at the Betway Muteesa Stadium, Wankulukuku on Saturday, Express are one foot into the quarterfinals.
But according to head coach Wasswa Bbosa, the tie is not over yet despite his side’s advantage, calling upon his players to concentrate and fight until the end.
“We have managed a 2-1 win today, but it does not mean this all over. No, we have a return leg,” Bbosa told the club’s website.
“We have a few days and we are going back to correct our mistakes. Generally, the boys concentrated and earned the win. I think we shall need such concentration also on Tuesday,” he added.
The Red Eagles had to come from a goal down to win the game after falling behind Ibrahim Dada’s second-minute strike.
Martin Kizza equalized for Express in the 17th minutes of the game, and at the hour mark, the come back was completed when Eric Kambale scored his third goal in two straight games.
“We have managed to win because we concentrated, the early goal destabilized us a bit. The boys showed a lot of mental strength. The job is not done yet,” Express captain Enock Walusimbi noted.
“We are going back to correct our mistakes, and we shall get the result that we need.”
With the return leg set for Tuesday, April 4, at the Arena of Visions in Ndejje, the all-time winners will be looking forward to beating the Tax Collectors for the fourth time this season after beating them thrice already.
However, URA on the other hand scored a precious away goal on which they can build to win and advance to the quarter-final.
