Basena Blames Defeat to Vipers SC on Loss of Concentration


Sports Club Villa is yet to win a game from the four they have played in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League this season.

A meager two points in the aforementioned games is all that SC Villa have to show and are currently languishing in the drop zone second from the bottom of the table.

Despite leading against Vipers SC on Wednesday, the record champions threw away the lead to eventually lose the game 3-1.

Head coach Moses Basena was quick to blame the defeat to the loss of concentration after taking the lead through Habib Kavuma’s goal in the 27th minute.

“We had a good start in the game and we were in the control. We even went ahead to take the lead but from then onwards, we lost concentration and gave away easy goals.” Basena told the media after the game.

The former Cranes assistant coach stated that the two goals they gave way in the second half were quite easy and could be avoided.

“We gifted them with two easy goals that you think could be avoided on another day and from then onwards, it became hard for us to come back into the game.” He added.


Despite defeat and a poor start to the season, Basena picked positives from the loss to Vipers SC indicating he was happy to see his team comfortable on the ball during some moments in the game.

“Like I said, we started well and I’m pleased that we could keep the ball and possession for some time. This is a team trying to rebuild and we can only hope for improvement in the coming games.” He said.

SC Villa’s next game will be a home duel against URA FC on Tuesday next week.
