By D. Saire & Leo Kabunga EXPRESS breathed a sigh of relief after a deserved win against Military at Nakivubo on Saturday. The win epitomised the highly needed sports virtue — discipline that has been a scarce commodity at Wankulukuku. Club chairman Godfrey Kirumira recently took radical decisions, sacking long serving captain George Ssemogerere and threatening similar action on others who misbehave. This, with the latest sh45m Petro Uganda sponsorship, gave the Red army a rare smile. Express for the first time in as many months played as a team and the win was not as a surprise. They will be further judged today when they host Iganga at Namboole. Coach Asuman Lubowa is however not very satisfied. “A coach would believe all was well after a win but there is a problem with our midfield,” he said Saturday. Express have dropped 15 points so far and would not want to slip further as they chase pace setters SC Villa and KCC. KCC on Sunday dropped two crucial points after drawing 2-2 with Police. The result gave Villa breathing space atop the table. Relegation threatened Chicago also host Mbarara at Nakivubo today. r Sportsman Kakungulu Cup knock out tournament enters the second round with KCC taking on Jackson Mayanja’s URA next week at Nakivubo. Fourteen teams qualified for the second round from which seven will proceed to join holders Villa in the quarter finals. Ends
