Alex Isabirye was delighted to see his Soana team stage a remarkable comeback from two goals down to stun Sadolin Paints 3-2 on Saturday at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole, but cautioned his team against conceding early goals.

Davis Ssali, Emmanuel Kalyowa and Baker Lukooya scored as Soana rallied back to down the Painters, and for the second time in a space of seven days, Soana were coming from behind to win 3-2.

Isabirye’s men came from a goal down to beat Proline 3-2 last Friday at Kavumba Recreational Ground.

“Coming from behind, two goals down to win 3-2 is amazing,” Isabirye who witnessed his team stretch their winning run in the league to three games said.

“I’m happy we did the same today like against Proline last week, but we have to stop respecting teams. I think we tend to give too much respect to our opponents in the first half and let them dictate the game that’s why we concede so early.

“We must stop conceding early goals. Against Proline and today, we were resilient. We managed to get back in shape and slightly played better than them in the second half, but what happens when we meet a very organized and defensively sound team? We have to stop letting teams score first. We have to find a solution to that,” Isabirye warned.

Soana, seventh in the league with 36 points return to league action next week on Saturday when they travel to Kitende to take on Vipers who are placed just above them in the league standings on goal difference.
