Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa has given much credit to his defenders after a narrow win over URA FC.
The Red Eagles defeated the tax collectors 1-0 in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at the Arena of Visions on Sunday evening.
George Ssenkaba scored in the 10th minute of the game and his goal was enough to secure maximum points for Express.
“I am glad that we have been able to win the game but I was left more impressed by the way we defended,” Bbosa said after the game before adding.
“We prepared well and also condemned the boys about over conceding goals mostly from set-pieces and I am happy that they mastered what we told them and pulled off a good performance.”
“As you saw in the game, everyone was in a good position covering well to see that we do not concede from set-pieces,” he added.
The 2012 SUPL champions came into the URA game with a single clean sheet registered in a 1-0 victory over SC Villa conceding in all the rest of their opening four games.
A win over URA took the Wankulukuku based side on 12 points collected from six games and they are now seated in the fourth position on the 16-team SUPL log, only two points adrift of leaders Vipers SC.
Up next for Express is struggling KCCA FC a side they will host at the Betway Muteesa ll Stadium, Wankulukuku on Wednesday, February 17.
“I know even in this very game there were some mistakes which we shall address before the game on Wednesday so that we can improve our performance.”
“Yes we are going to play against KCCA next but what I can say is that all the teams we have played so far are the ones that have been competing in top positions so we shall prepare as we have been doing.”
“Yes it is good we are going to be playing from home but it will not be a walkover because they have good players and a good coach despite struggling recently, so we shall need to prepare well,” Bbosa noted.
After that tie, Bbosa and his charges will have played against most of the top teams having already played Villa, Vipers, URA, Onduparaka FC, Bright Stars FC and Mbarara City FC.
