Villa Coach Douglas Bamweyana has said that his side ‘still have a lot of work to do’ following a 1-0 loss to URA FC in a league game played at Mandela National Stadium.
The Coach, speaking to the Journalists shortly after the loss, also explained the reason as to why some of the new signings did not get at least a place on the bench.
Patrick Paul Mbowa scored against his former employees when he directed Saidi Kyeyune’s corner past debutant Saidi Keni in goal.
Villa tried to fight back, even with the introduction of Habib Kavuma, Ambrose Kirya and Benson Muhindo, but in vain.
We were in control of the game, its just that we made one mistake and we conceded,” a disappointed Bamweyana said.
We didn’t start slow, in fact we were in charge especially in the first 20 minutes and you can tell that we were the better side.”
Explaining on why he had just four players, not seven as expected on the bench, Bamweyana revealed:
It has to do with Paper work: Some documents of these players were missing, and some of the licences came in late.”
On the way forward and what next for his struggling side, he commented:
We still have a lot of work to do, these new players need to gel but I have to repeat that the result didn’t reflect the performance on the field.”
This was the club’s sixth loss in the league, and the record league winners sit at the edge of the red zone – fourth from the bottom.
Next for Villa is a home game against Bright Stars at Namboole before facing bitter rivals and reigning Champions SC Vipers at Kitende.
