Gaddafi Modern head coach Wasswa Bbosa started life at his new side with a 2-0 loss to SC Villa, at Muteesa II Stadium Wankulukuku on Sunday.
Much as the side lost, Bbosa believes it’s too early to press the panic button because they still have a lot to fight for in the ongoing 2022-23 campaign.
“There is no time to panic because we shall bounce back,” Bbosa calmly said after the game before adding.
“You know a league is like a marathon and we have played one game off the roaster of many. We have a few things to work on so that we find our right bearings.”
Right from the unveiling ceremony of the head coach, the club president Lt. Edrine Ochieng expressed the season target as being the UPL trophy.
But Gaddafi’s race to meet their dream was put on hold by a well-motivated SC Villa.
Gift Fred gave the home side the lead before Andrew Waiswa tapped into his net to ensure the record champions start the season with their best foot forward.
According to the former Express FC coach, the better team on the day lost the game: “We did everything possible on the pitch but failed to put the ball in the back of the net.”
“We are going to concentrate on the final third to see that we convert our chances,” he noted.
Gaddafi missed several chances that could have changed the result, Richard Basangwa was denied twice from close range, while Yunus Sibira and Johnson Odong saw their attempts parry off the frame.
Gaddafi will return to action as they host Onduparaka FC at the Gaddafi Arena on Tuesday, October 11.
