James Odoch: Express Coach Happy with Point Off UPDF

Express Head Coach James Odoch is glad with a point they picked in Bombo against UPDF in their league opener.

Allan Kayiwa gave the visitors the lead in the 50th minute when he slotted past UPDF’s Ivan Mutumba to net his first goal.

Another Debutant Achumu Farid who came on for Pius Kaggwa equalised for the hosts in the 64th minute after Express defenders failed to clear the ball in a congested box following a good run from Mugisha Rogers.

Odoch while addressing the club media after the draw, said they are satisfied with the result though they wanted all the points considering their poor record against UPDF at the Bombo Military Barracks Ground.

“First of all, I want to thank the Boys for the hard work they put in, the game was so tight. It’s not the result that we wanted because we wanted to win the game but a point is not a bad result,” Odoch stated.

“We have taken long without winning any game here.”

The Red Eagles

Prior to Saturday, Express had lost their three previous visits against UPDF 1-0.

Express next assignment will be against URA at the Mutesa II Stadium Wankulukuku and the gaffer believes they will do all they can to win the game.

“At least we have got a point away, we shall go and prepare ourselves for our next game against URA at home to see that we correct our mistakes and we win so that we can be on the comfort zone.”

Kayiwa who joined Express from Vipers, scored on his debut and speaking after the draw, the Winger couldn’t hide his joy.

“I am happy to score on my debut, the game wasn’t bad, it was a good game for me,” Kayiwa started.

“We lost concentration and conceded the equaliser but we shall go back on the drawing board and amend the mistakes so that we can win the next match”.
