Express FC’s woes continued yesterday when they were held to a goalless draw at home by Bright Stars in the Azam-sponsored Uganda Premier League match.
The result means Express have gone three matches without victory, having lost to Onduparaka (1-2) and BUL (0-1) in earlier games.
And in the aftermath of yesterday’s game at Wankulukuku, it was evident the Red Eagles’ house is already on fire as a section of frustrated fans vented their anger at referee Aisha Ssemambo, who they accused of cancelling their club’s legitimate goal.
Dan Sserunkuma had put the ball in the net in injury time but was ruled offside. Police fired in the air to restore calm and save the referees from the charged Red Eagles’ fans.
However, coach Deo Bamweyana was pleased with his players’ overall performance yesterday. He also dismissed reports that his job was on the line, insisting he has the backing of the management. He says the team is bound to improve along the way.
The draw leaves Express just two places above the relegation zone, a paltry eight points from eight games.
Elsewhere, Police beat UPDF 1-0 in a clash of armed forces at Bombo grounds. Hood Kaweesa scored the solitary winner for the cops, taking them top of the table, with 16 points from eight games.
While Sidney Chika ensured that Maroons maintained their winning run as he scored the solitary winner against Proline at Luzira.
