First of all, our opponents came to attack but how many chances did they get?” Ssemwogerere posed the question in his post-match press conference before adding. “Nothing! For us (Express) we got almost 4 chances but we didn’t finish them.”

“Because if it was my recruitment, they’d have been a very good bench but I look at the bench, who I can put in except Badru [Nsubuga],” he noted.

The point took Express FC to 29 points with just seven games left to conclude the 2018-9 league season.
