Kirinya-Jinja SSS coach Abbey Bogere was not convinced with his side’s performance against already relegated JMC side on Tuesday at Kakindu Stadium despite securing a commanding and crucial victory.

The Students, battling relegation beat their local rivals 4-0, with George Ssenkaba, John Semazzi, Anthony Mayanja and James Otim all appearing on the score sheet.

It was a game that saw Kirinya dominate possession from the word go and create numerous chances but could only net four times as they fluffed great opportunities, with Semazzi and Mark Bamukyaye the guilty parties.

Although it was their first time scoring four goals in a single match since their promotion to the Uganda Premier League, Bogere felt they could have netted more than that.

He said: “I’m not happy at all. My players are not serious honestly. We were in need of the three points as well as many goals.

“We created very many chances but look what we’ve managed. Frankly speaking, it could’ve ended 7-0 had we been serious. Mayanja, Mark, Semmazi and Senkaba all missed great opportunities. I’m not happy at all.

“The relegation battle is very tight. Teams are most likely to tie on points and the only thing that will save you is the goal difference. We had the opportunity to score very many today but we messed it.”

“I’m obviously happy with the win. It was a very vital win, but disappointed with our performance,” a frustrated Bogere told Kawowo Sports after the game.

Tuesday’s win lifted Bogere’s charges to the eleventh position in the league, three places and as many points above Lweza who occupy the 14th position -one of the dreaded places in the league- and who they face next in a do-or-die tie on Tuesday at Wankulukuku stadium.
