Nyamityobora 0-2 Express
Brian Umony and Frank Zagga Tumwesigye opened their accounts for Express as the Red Eagles beat Nyamityobora 2-0 in Mbarara on Tuesday.
The win was also George Ssimwogerere’s first in two StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) matches as Express coach.
“The boys have done their best,” said Ssimwogerere. I’m now concentrating on the next.”
Both goalscorers moved to Wankulukuku in the half season transfer window, with Umony arriving as a free agent and Zagga on loan from Vipers.
Express move to 24 points but remain 10th while defeat drops Nyamityobora, who also lost 3-0 to local rivals Mbarara City, to second from bottom on 12 points.
Nyamityobora coach Asaph Mwebaze, was left wondering whether he can save the team from potential relegation.
“I think our players are just not at this level,” he said, “Idon’t think I can do anything with this team.”
