Coach Kefa Kisala has revealed that Express FC need to sign a top goal poacher to curb the growing issue of goal drought at the club.
Kisala who was speaking to the press shortly after the club’s hard fought 2-1 win, noted that he recognises the fact that his side is struggling to get goals. He added that the club is concerned and willing to get a target man in the January window.
We are willing to get a prolific striker, we still have like five available spots in our squad. However, it’s hard to get a goal scorer at the level we want but we will do our best to solve the issue,” said Kisala.
The coach, who joined the Wankulukuku based outfits at the start of the season from BUL FC, has been under fire in the club’s recent games as fans continue to show their discontent and frustrations towards his coaching tactics.
In the goalless draw with Ndejje University, the last first round league game, the fans demanded for Kisala’s resignation before being calmed down by Club Chairman Kiryowa ‘KK’ Kiwanuka in a meeting held shortly after the game.
Against Water FC, Express missed scoring opportunities – Mubarak Nsubuga, Tony Odur and Michael Birungi all failed to bury open chances, however the side made amends to squeeze past the Big League side as they stormed the round of 16.
Water is a good club, there have been there for so long, I am happy with the result not the performance, we just had to win ugly and there is no bad win.
The cohesion is still poor and we look to improve in the coming games. We will reorganise.”
