Express FC dropped one place to settle on eighth with 21 points after losing their opening match of the second round to Tooro United in Fort Portal on Tuesday.
Simon Ssrenkuma converted the only goal of the match from the spot in the 87th minute.
Express FC coach Kefa Kisala believes that his team had created enough chances to win the game but blames his attack line for failing to put them away.
“It wasn’t a bad game because we got chances and failed to score they got the penalty and scored,” the soft-spoken coach said.
The coach also rued his defence’s lack of concentration for the penalty awarded to Express FC.
Allan Kayiwa, who was later awarded man of the match, dribbled past Disan Galiwango but the defender brought him down with the centre referee pointing to the spot.
“we controlled the game but that mistake we made with like five minutes to go cost us it was a penalty which we would have controlled but at the end of the day the team which scored the goal won the game,” he added.
