Kirinya-Jinja SSS boss Abbey Bogere has put the heat on his players, urging them to change their attitude if they are to maintain their status in the top flight.

Bogere’s concern come after what he called a ‘disappointing performance’ from his side on Tuesday during their 4-0 victory over already relegated JMC side at Kakindu Stadium in Jinja.

The quartet of George Senkaba, John Semazzi, Anthony Mayanja and James Otim scored in that game as Kirinya scored four goals in a single game for the first time this season, but the former three were culprits for fluffing great opportunities that left their boss frustrated.

While eight other teams (KCCA, Vipers, SC Villa, Onduparaka, Express, Proline, Lweza and Bul) have netted four times in a single game this season, it is not often that teams in the Uganda Premier League score many goals in a one game.

In fact only KCCA and SC Villa have scored more than four in one game this campaign.

But Bogere, well aware that goal difference could decide who stays in the league felt his relegation threatened side should’ve netted a mammoth of goals against their local rivals had they been ‘serious.’

Ahead of their do-or-die tie against relegation rivals Lweza on Tuesday next week, the tactician has urged his charges to change their attitude.

He said: “Tuesday’s game is a must win for us, but for us to get all the three points, we must change our approach to the game. Lweza is a good side and they will come for one thing, victory which will be our target too.

“We have to change our attitude if we are to overcome Lweza because they have some really experienced players in there like Owen (Kasule) who know what it means when a team is in such a situation.

“A draw would be a fair result for us but it would mean avoiding defeat in our last game against a very tricky Proline side which could be hard as it comes with pressure so we have to try and win at Wankulukuku to avoid any kind of pressure on the last day.”
