A Point Isn’t Bad But Two Are Dropped – Bright Stars’ Kiwanuka

Soltilo Bright Stars head coach Paul Kiwanuka has expressed mixed feelings after the mouth-watering encounter against reigning champions Express FC.

The two sides completed the second stalemate of the season after a 1-1 draw in the first leg that was played at Betway Muteesa II Stadium.

While speaking to Bright Stars media, Kiwanuka noted that it was a vital point against the champions but two dropped after a spectacular show.

“I am happy to pick a point against the defending champions but on the other side sad for failing to convert our chances,” Kiwanuka revealed shortly after the game at Kavumba Recreational Centre.

“It has been a great result but I will stress that we have been so unlucky and that means we dropped as much as two points.”

According to Kiwanuka, the team did a lot of homework on how Express attacks and it made them prepared to play against their attacking line.

The former Vipers assistant coach raised praises to the forward Emmanuel Loki who staged a great performance keeping Express defenders on the back foot.

“Loki’s performance was good and he has been one of the players we have been missing due to injuries. His addition has been good and it has given us a great boost.”

“With him, we have well-streamed plans going into the coming games so that we benefit from his agility and pace. He provides us with width and chances to be converted into goals,” he concluded.

Bright Stars will hit the road to play against SC Villa at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru on Friday February 11, 2022.

They sit 14th on the 16-teamed log with 12 points from 16 games.
