BUL Football Club acting head coach Peter Onen has appealed for more calmness from his players in front of goal.

Onen was addressing the media after his side’s Uganda Premier League goalless draw with Kirinya-Jinja S.S in the Jinja derby.

Also the head coach for the Uganda National U-17 team, a calm Onen disclosed;

We created many chances like we have always done.

We only need to be calm and ensure the ball is placed at the back of the net.

BUL’s Robert Achema was a culprit of poor finishing in the Jinja derby as a lion’s share of goal scoring chances belonged to the former SC Villa and Sadolin Paints player.

Onen, however remains hopeful of positive performances in the up-coming matches;

We shall remain on course. In the next matches, we need to prepare well because there is a big chance for us to stay just in case we win games.

He took over the club after angry and disappointed club fans demanded that Frank ‘Video’ Anyau steps aside for at least three matches.

The decision was ‘bought’ by management who are yet to come up with neither an official statement nor final verdict of their own.

This followed a stormy meeting between the club top management and the fans held at Kakindu stadium.

This season, BUL has struggled for a footing in the top flight league despite spending quite a fortune to build a formidable side over the years.

In the January 2017 window alone, they recruited the enterprising midfielder David Bagoole (younger brother to former Uganda Cranes’ international, Johnson Bagoole), Fred Agandu, Farouk Kawooya, Villa Oromocha, Patrick Sembuya as well as goalies Eric Dhaira and Brian ‘Ziggi’ Bwete.

BUL lingers in the relegation parameters with 17 points as they seat second from bottom, just above Jinja Municipal Counil Hippos.
