CRO coach Frank “Video” Anyau is under pressure to find a strategy that will earn the team an away win when they visit Nalubaale in the day’s only league match.

The Mbale-based CRO, who returned to top flight football after one year, have collected six points from three home games and lost all their away ties against URA, KCC, Fire Masters and Arua Central FC.

Anyau, however, is still optimistic his team will improve as the league progresses.

“We (CRO) have just played six out of 34 matches and it is too early to judge us on performance,” Anyau said.

Meanwhile, the national soccer federation’s move of attracting fans back to the stadium paid off Saturday when over 10,000 turned up for the Bunamwaya-Simba super league match. The drive was achieved with the aid of telecommunication company MTN.

In normal circumstances, the match would have been watched by less than 100 fans but the free entrance and bringing in locals artistes from Eagles Production and Fire Base Crew excited the revellers.

Despite the gates flying open at 1pm, it was not until 3pm that most trickled in. Those used to the 4pm kick off came in just in time for the second half kick off- and were surprised when referee Muhammed Segonga ended the games at 4:48pm, taking even journalist who had come late by surprise.

Owen Kasule hit a brace and Ibrahim Juma added another for Bunamwaya to pick maximum points against a lackluster army side that left many wondering as to what could have happened to the once industrious side.

Despite their good build ups, Simba strikers were shy in front of goal with Hamu Galiwango, Henry Tindyebwa and Godfrey Wakaza shooting blanks.
