Vipers 1-0 Tooro: Coach Kawalya Blames Referee Miiro

Tooro United assistant coach Sam Kawalya was hard done by Referee Brian Miiro Nsubuga and believes that the official was responsible for his team’s loss at Kitende.

Tooro United lost 1-0 away to ten man Vipers on matchday two of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

Fahad Bayo scored the only goal of the game, but Kawalya has noted that Miiro poorly handled the game.

“I have to blame the centre referee, his officiating was not perfect as you all witnessed,” Kawalya commented in a post match press conference at Kitende.

“He was biased to the fact that someone was booked twice and continued to play. He spoilt the game.”

Miiro, who was assisted by Dickson Okello and Ronald Katenyi, gave Vipers’ Farouk Musisi a second yellow card but let the player remain on the pitch before he was reminded by fourth official Ali Sabila that the left back was supposed to march off.

Notably, Miiro also showed a red card to Tooro head coach Wasswa Bbosa for misconduct on the touchline.

Tooro will also have their striking department to blame, with Steven Omvia, Godfrey Lwesibawa and John Semazzi all at fault.

“We had a very good game but we didn’t get the result we wanted and deserved. We dominated from start and in all departments, we failed to take our chances,” Kawalya added.
