Review: Express inflict heaviest defeat on Wakiso Giants

Tripple Threat! Disan Galiwango, Brian Ssenyondo and Frank Kalanda have scored a combined 14 goals this season for Express | Sanyuka TV media

Since their inception last season, Wakiso Giants have never conceded three goals with out response.

Wakiso Giants lost 3-0 to Express in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League tie played at the Kabaka Kyabagu Stadium on Saturday.

Goals by skipper Dissan Galiwango, striker Frank Kalanda and forward Frank Ssenyondo were the difference in an end to end encounter that offered little defensively.

Despite the downpour minutes to kickoff, Wakiso tried and insisted on the possessive approach on the drenched ground, they someone succeeded.

In the final third, they seemed to panic every time they got into the productive area of the pitch, but the Red Eagles also set up quite well defensively throughout the game.

Express weren’t wasting time, Galiwango and Frank Ssenyondo were entrusted with taking the team forward as they focused on catching Wakiso Giants on the counterattack.

And it eventually paid off, in the 13th minute of those game, a solo run from Galiwango opened up space down the left before he shot at Yasin Mugabi in the Waksio Giants goal.

Mugabi saved the ground shot, but Galiwango who was losing balance in the process followed up quickly with the head to give Express the lead.

Express doubled their lead 10 minutes later, Ssenyondo broke away from Swaib Mudde before his pass beat the entire back line for Kalanda to tap in an empty net for his fifth of the season.

Minutes to the break, midfielder Daniel Shabena had a chance to make it 3-0 but with the goal at his mercy, ballooned his effort to the skies.

Ten minutes into the second half, striker Geoffrey Sserunkuma had a change to pull one back, unmarked, he went for power and glanced his effort wide.

Mugabi gifted Express a third in the 66th minute, spilling Ssenyondo’s shot, with the forward pouncing to round off Mugabi and slot into an empty net for his third of the season.

Not that Wakiso Giants weren’t trying, they gave it a fight but Tonny Kyamera in the Express goal barely out a foot wrong.

The defeat is also Wakiso Giants’ second at home in six outings, the other being the 1-0 win over BUL, but the latest slump is one that might affect manager Kefa Kisala’s relationship with his bosses.

The win takes Express to 13 points and ninth position on the 16 team log, Wakiso also on 13 points drop from seventh to 10th

Wakiso Giants visit Vipers at Kitende on November 5th, on the same day Express will hosts Maroons at a yet to he communicated venue since the Betway Muteesa II Stadium is currently suspended.
