Coach Douglas Bamweyana had mixed feelings after out goalless draw away to Police in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League opening game.
Last season, the Cops beat us 2-1 home and away and earning a point off them was an improvement from last season but with the chances we had to win the game, the coach feels three points would have made the day better.
“First, we are happy with the fact that we have improved from the last performances against this side. But overall, we are disappointed.
“I thought we got the best of chances and we should have done better and on a day. Being the first day, we didn’t control the game as we wanted but there is a lot of room to improve to sustain the attacks longer and the time in the second half when sustained attacks longer, we looked the side we are supposed to be so there is a lot of work to do and we probably want to do better in the next one but for now, we settle for a point.”
On the four debutants; Edward Satulo, Joshua Lubwama, Rahmat Ssenfuka and Ibrahim ‘Owen’ Kasule
“I was very pleased with all of them. Satulo was imperious at the back, Ssenfuka marshalled the midfield well and Owen when he came on created quite a number of things and we were just unfortunate not to benefit from them. Joshua (Lubwama) did well only that he felt something like a hamstring and we had to withdraw him but he did a lot of good things especially off the ball but of course.
The whole team did well and whatever we did or missed, it’s about the team and not individuals.”
Our next fixture is at home to Kyetume FC on Wednesday December 9 at Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium, Wakissha.
