Maroons hope for better fortunes

Maroons coach Asaph Mwebaze hopes their first victory of the season will be a turning point.

The Luzira side on Tuesday beat Bright Stars 1-0 away from home to win for the first time in five matches.

Felix Okot scored their only goal of the campaign on 70 minutes to move Maroons from the bottom of a 16-team table to 12th with five points.

Mwebaze, who next face SC Villa next Wednesday, says it was a tough start but is optimistic they will build on from this.

“It was a very bad fixture,” said Mwebaze. Maroons picked only two points from a possible 12 from their first four games against champions KCCA, Onduparaka, URA, and Express.

“But I’m hopeful,” he added, “This could be the turning point as we are now trying to gel.

“We hope that after this fixture we can start putting points on the board. We need to improve on taking our chances in games, and we create many.”

The league continues on Friday with Proline hosting Mbarara City at Star Times Stadium.
