Bright stars FC coach Paul Kiwanuka says they were unlucky not to walk away with maximum points against Express.

Bright Stars played a goalless draw with Express FC in their opening game of the second round on Monday at Kavumba.

Coach Kiwanuka said after the game that they could have bagged all three points if they converted their chances.

“We were unlucky not to take the three points just because we failed to convert our chances but I am happy for picking up a point against the defending champions, so it was a good result,” said Kiwanuka.

The draw came on the back of the club’s 3-0 loss to URA FC at the same venue.

“We did a lot of corrections from the URA game and also analysed the way Express FC attacked so we were prepared to play alongside their their attacking line as we applied a lot of discipline in our defence.

“It has been a huge point against Express and it will be a huge boost to the boys as we take on Villa next Friday.

“We are going to concentrate more on not conceding and how we can finnish up the chances we create.”

The discipline in defence and decision making saw defender Derrick Ngobi walk away with the man of the match accolade.

“The performance was good,” started Ngoobi.

“We played as a team though we didn’t achieve what we wanted but we shall do better in our next game.”

Bright stars who visit SC Villa in their next game at the FUFA technical centre in Njeru sit 14th on the log with 12 points just two points below 13th placed Onduparaka.
