Express FC head coach George Ssimwogerere feels his side were match fit – a reason they came from a goal down to overcome Mbarara City in the Uganda Premier League on Tuesday.
The Wankulukuku based side edged the hosts at Luzira, thanks to Hamdan Nsubuga, Frank Kalanda and Daniel Shabena’s late strike.
Ssimwogerere felt his side were running on chariot-wheels an aspect that helped them clinch three points.
“I thank the players they have been well motivated and consoled themselves and knew that they are talented and young with a lot of potential so we said we can’t not be afraid of Mbarara City though we made some mistakes which made us concede goals but we know it was goalkeeping and shaping of the wall,” he told the club website after the match.
“They played well, fought well and showed they have brave hearts.
“Coming from a goal down shows that the fitness levels are on top no player was tired but of cos we had to make changes I didn’t even make the last substitution because they were all performing well so I’m requesting them to continue that way.”
The Red Eagles will return to action again on Friday 13th against SC Villa in the Kampala derby at Wankulukuku.
