With a winning motive, every manager would wish to see his team outscore the opposition, then there those who just don’t want to concede goals.

Wakiso Giants head coach Kefa Kisala is in the same league, he was impressed after goals by Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Karim Ndugwa inspired the side to a 2-1 over Tooro United in the Pilsner Super 8 classification tie on Tuesday in Wakiso but at the same time disappointed.

“In the last game we didn’t score but at least today we created chances and scored twice but still we again conceded a goal amounting to three goals in two games which is a challenge,” Kisala said after the game

“The game was physical but the players played well and were up to the challenge because Tooro United as always they play that physical game,” he added.

Newly promoted to topflight football, Wakiso Giants have had two tests already against reigning champions KCCA FC and Tooro United, both in the Pilsner Super 8.

The Purple Sharks lost 2-0 to KCCA, the win over Tooro United, is motivation ahead of the UPL season.

“The game is always the best teacher and in both games, we’ve learned a lot, therefore, we shall try our level best to sort out everything before the season starts,” Kisala noted.

In order for Wakiso Giants to live up to their ultimate target of maintaining their position in the Uganda Premier League for over seasons, they’ll have to work hard defensively.

Offensively, they have the players who can offer that brutal spark against topflight opposition and they experience needed to deliver at the biggest stage of Ugandan football.
