Birungi, scorer of a hat-trick against Kachumbala Rock Stars during the 6-0 humiliation in the Uganda Cup has called upon teammates to replicate the scoring form in the previous two league matches – against Police and Soana.

Express lost 4-3 to Police at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole during a 7 goal thriller before recovering swiftly to win 4-0 at their Mutesa II Wankulukuku fortress against Soana Football Club days later.

The former Fire Master, KCCA, Khartoum Al Watani and Police pacy forward player has since offered some advice;

We need consistency in scoring.

Against Police, we managed to score three goals which was a bonus.

The only bad thing was that we lost. Against Soana, we scored four goals and we defended well.

I call for consistency from the players. For the fans, they have to remain positive for all the time
