Pande Cifu, head coach of Olila High School WFC, has blamed his team’s loss against Uganda Martyrs on injuries and lack of experience.
Olila lost 2-1 against hosts Uganda Martyrs in a FUFA Women Super League game played on Sunday in Rubaga.
There was less positives to pick from Olila despite Grace Aluka scoring her third goal of the season.
The side has now managed only one win (and two losses) in the three league games – They lost to UCU at home in the opener before beating Lady Doves.
“We didn’t manage to get the best results against Uganda Martyrs because we had a number of challenges especially injuries, many of our players are injured and I had to just force some into this game,” said Pande.
The side forced in Aluka (ankle injury) and Dinah Akiriat, while they missed their sharp shooter Amoding Sporoza.
After taking the lead, the side looked so average, they put the pace off the proceedings as they failed to create any other clear cut chance with gave the trailing host to take matters in their full control.
“We lost concentration and the excitement was too high, may be seeing themselves winning in-front of the big crowd, but I also say, these are young girls, most of them lack experience because this is their first season playing Super League so I can’t blame them so much we are here to teach them on what to do.
“But that is how football is, if you are on away, the pressure is too much from the home fans, so I think Uganda Martyrs had the 12th player who supported them so much for the win but we promise our fans all over the country that we will come back stronger.”
They were 3rd on the log before the game, and later dropped to 6th, with three points from three games so far and they will host She Maroons in their next fixture on Saturday.
