Wasswa Bossa Rues Missed Chances

Sports Club will have to rue the several chances they missed as they bowed out of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

There was an initial standoff at the stadium gate before kickoff when Villa bus carrying players was denied entrance with Vipers SC security requesting the players to move out for inspection a decision the Villa officials hesitated.

The SC Villa bus arrived at St. Mary’s Stadium at 2.30pm and only accessed the facility thirty minutes to kickoff.

In his first remarks after the game, Wasswa revealed his disappointment in the way they were treated before kickoff.

“It’s a shame we came early and spent a lot of time waiting at the gate,” he said.

The tactician, however, believes his side should have used their chances to bury the game and progress.

The manner in which Villa set up for the game suggested that they would struggle to find the back of the net.

Off-colour strikers Alex Kitata, George Ssenkaba and Yubu Bogere started on the bench as Allan Kyambadde led the line.

Even with no recognised striker on the pitch, the visitors severally found themselves in goal scoring positions but could not find their scoring boots.

“We created enough chances to win the game but we didn’t score,” Bossa said at the end of the game.

Yaya Mahad and John Adriko wasted chances in the first half while Allan Kyambadde was denied by the cross bar after beating goalkeeper to the ball in an aerial contest.

Second half substitute Brian Nkubi scored the lone goal from a free kick in the 71st minute.

Having lost out in the race to the league title, Villa will end yet another season with no silverware.

Vipers SC will now play KCCA FC  in the final this Saturday at Emokori stadium in Bukedia District.
