Maroons secured their third consecutive win with a victory over Proline, this follows wins against Masavu and Bright Stars respectively.
Head coach Asaph Mwebaze believes the improvement is due to hard work,
“It’s is due to hard work and improvement on the daily basis, getting the boys up everyday and not resting after wins, today’s win is now passed and so we have to focus on the next game and put up another great performance.”
On how he feels that his team has started to score goals after struggling in the first games,
“I am delighted that we have started to score goals because now we have four different goal scorers since we don’t depend on an individual. The other thing is that we are tight behind and we no longer concede a lot like in the first games.”
Mwebaze also reserved some praise for his central midfielders Ronald Orombi and Felix Okot who were instrumental in the team’s victory. He added,
“They put up a very good shift, denied Proline midfielders to settle in the game and this helped us deny them delivery of balls upfront to their forwards.”
On the team’s position, Mwebaze said,
“I am delighted we are in the top six now, we only managed 15 points in our last season but we have now already collected 12 after just 8 games. This shows we have improved a lot and shows maturity in the team.”
Mwebaze’s men will next play a visit to leaders Police on match day 9 of the Azam Uganda Premier League.
