Ndejje University 0-0 Kirinya Jinja SS
Kirinya Jinja SS coach Charles Ayiekho was disappointed with the attitude of his players they showed in barren draw.
Ndejje University FC held Kirinya Jinja SS to a goalless draw in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League encounter played at the Arena of visions in Luwero on Tuesday.
Ayiekho blamed his players for not doing enough, and he commented that his boys took Ndejje for granted.
Speaking shortly after the draw, Ayiekho revealed his displeasure:
“I am very disappointed with the attitude of my players because it could be seen from the word go that they never took Ndejje serious.
“Our attitude, especially in the first half was completely down but second half when I made some changes, we tried to press.”
Coach Ayeikho brought on Vincent Zziwa and Joseph Opolot – The latter came on in the 65th minute to replace David Bagoole.
He added: “We squandered two clear cut chances in the second half: goalkeeper beaten but Madondo wasted it. And we had a free kick in a good area but we couldn’t capitalise.”
On the day, Nelson Mandela was given the man of the match sh100000 for his outstanding display.
Commenting on his player, Ayiekho explained: “Mandela was outstanding, he pushed forward and came back to help the defence. He deserved it because he worked for it the entire 90 minutes.”
He commended Ndejje for playing as a team and for putting up a good defensive strategy that hindered his side from finding the back of the net.
Kirinya remain tenth on the log with 11 points from nine games. This was the fifth draw for the Jinja based club. SC Villa, KCCA, Vipers and Maroons have all shared spoils with Ayiekho’s team.
The point lifts Ndejje from the drop zone to 13 place on the log.
Next for Kirinya will be a tie at home when they host visiting Express FC. Ndejje on the hand will take a trip to the capital to face KCCA, on December 08.
