Express Football Club captain David Ndihabwe attributed Friday’s loss to Onduparaka in the Uganda Premier League to a lapse in concentration.
The Red Eagles fell 2-1 to the Catapillars courtesy of a superb late volley by Samson Ceasar Okhuti in the 92nd minute.
Onduparaka took the lead against the run of play through Alfred Leku who slotted home off left winger Viane Ssekajugo’s cut back but Express replied through Daniel ‘Muzeyi’ Sserunkuma.
In an exclusive interview with Kawowo Sports, Ndihabwe who had a hand in Express equalizing goal said;
We had worked hard to earn at least a point since we fell down mid way the second half.
Unfortunately, because of lapse of concentration, we lost it at the end of the day. We are a strong club and we shall recover swiftly for the next game ahead of us
Slams missed chances
The former Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU) midfielder rued the missed goal scoring opportunities created.
It was a good match where we created several chances to score.
May be, we could have scored more than the one goal we scored.
Tricky next engagements
Next in line for the two clubs are tricky fixtures on match day seven.
Express travels to Jinja to face BUL, a club that fell 4-0 in their immediate past game to URA at Namboole stadium.
The mother of all battles will be in Arua when Onduparaka will host Vipers at the GreenLight stadium. On their last visit to Arua, Vipers lost 1-0 before revenging 2-0 at St Mary’s.
