Kefa Kisala started his second stint at Bul with a disappointing result following his side’s barren draw against league debutants Mbarara City on Tuesday at Kakindu Stadium, Jinja.
Kisala’s men missed three great opportunities in the first half, with new addition Richard Wandyaka the guilty party as the former URA striker fluffed the chances.
Bul almost paid for their first half wastefulness when the visitors introduced Boniface Aman and Brian Ahabwe at the start of the second half as the duo proved a handful for Kisala’ side, but thanks to their defense that had Musa Walangarira command, no damage was done.
“We lacked cohesion in the team,” a frustrated Kisala explained. “Being that most players are new, we were a bit disjointed. There was no connection between our midfield and our strikers. The chances we created, we didn’t utilize. Maybe Wandyaka felt a bit unfit. We had two or three chances that could have gone in the first half but we failed to bury.
“We were not convincing today and obviously we are disappointed but we missed our lead striker [Jean] Muhindu who is yet to secure his ICT. That also affected us.”
While Kisala was disappointed by the general performance, he singled out his defense for praise. He said: “The defense did a very good job especially in the second half when Mbabara City attacked us a lot. We were good in defense.”
