Gitta: There Was Improvement Against The Saints

Alex Gitta applauded the team for the spirited performance

Express head coach Alex Gitta has applauded his team’s spirited performance against the Saints football club.

The Red Eagles required an extra effort to edge a resilient Saints 2-1 in the Uganda Premier League game played on Saturday at Bombo Military barracks ground.

Gitta believes the team showed “hunger” for a win after a draw at home against Onduparaka.

“We went back to the drawing board and ironed out a few issues that cost us the game against Onduparaka.”

“The performance from the team today was a spirited one. The boys showed hunger and even when they (Saints) leveled at some point, order we kept attacking until we regained the lead, ” said Gitta.

When quizzed about his defence leaking goals in every game, Gitta said it was normal and believes that will be sorted soon.

“It’s true we concede almost every game but that’s normal. We have injury concerns that’s why Yayo Lutimba is playing in defence but we shall improve as soon as possible,” he explained.

An own goal from Saints captain Dennis Ssekitoleko and John Ssemazi ensured Express picked maximum points and now occupy fourth spot with 8 points just one point behind leaders KCCA.

Express will play BUL at home in their next game on Tuesday, 20th September.
