The Busoga United head coach Abbey Bogere Kikomeko says that they are not yet safe despite beating Express FC.
Paul Ssekulima scored the only goal of the game as Busoga United stunned the visiting Red Eagles at Kakindu.
The win ensured that Busoga United moved to 13th, a place above the relegation zone with just a point above Mbarara city who sit 14th on 16 points.
“We have got three points but we are not yet safe, we need to fight for maximum points in the coming games to see that we survive relegation in the league which is now tense,” said Coach Abbey Kikomeko.
He lauded the performances of his players as they put up a brilliant display to claim a 1-0 win against the Red Eagles and also credited adequate preparations.
“The game was good because we prepared very well for Express FC having went to Onduparaka and lost. The boys came out to fight for three points and they played very well I am happy for their performance they displayed. I pray that we continue playing like this in the upcoming games.”
The club captain Anthony Mayanja praised the spirits of the fans who have stood with the team despite the difficult times they have been facing.
Mayanja said: “I want to thank the fans for standing with us despite being in the relegation zone. We promised them that we shall play hard to see that we survive relegation and our journey has started with the three points against Express.”
Mayanja who is just coming back from an injury which kept him on the sidelines in their past two games has vowed to help the team survive relegation as they turn focus onto the next league game.
“We now turn focus onto the next league game against SC Villa.”
Busoga United will play their next league game against SC Villa on the 3rd of March at the FUFA technical centre in Njeru.
Busoga will be up against BUL FC in the Uganda Cup round of 32.
