Proline head Coach Mujib Kasule says the reason as to why his side surrendered a two goal lead to draw 3-3 against Lweza on Saturday at the Phillip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo was because they lacked coordination in defense.
Kasule’s side enjoyed the ride in the first half with two goals from their lead striker Edrisa Lubega- the second of which came out of an excellent team play, but the side was overwhelmed by Lweza’ relentless attacks and determination.
Yasin Mugume breathed life into his team in the 53rd minute before Karim Nduggwa equalizing in the 56th minute, and despite Joseph Mandela’s awe strike to restore Proline’s lead, Musa Docca made sure it was short-lived as he converted the penalty to end matters 3-3.
“We lacked coordination at the back,” said Kasule after the game. “We surrendered the lead and now this is the outcome, but you can’t blame the players because we tried to play our game.”
“We missed key players in Savio (Kabugo), Mukisa and our captain who is injured and that affected us.”
The defensive duo of Kabugo and Mukisa were suspended due to accumulations of cards and only witnessed their side concede thrice inside 16 minutes from the stands.
Proline, who play title contending Vipers on Saturday, October 15 after the international break have now conceded eleven goals while keeping a clean sheet just twice, and the last time they shut out an opponent, it was against Police on match day three.
“We are going to continue training especially on our defensive play, and try avoiding injuries.
“We play Vipers next so it is important we work on defense.”
Proline remain static in the eleventh position in the league.
