Vipers coach Edward Golola has faulted fatigue for his side’s unconvincing display in a 1-0 win against Wakiso Giants on Tuesday.
Goal scorer Fahad Bayo missed clear cut chances, and Vipers in general, should have won by a bigger margin but failed to dominate proceedings once again facing an ailing side with a care taker boss, at home.
Despite the performance, the Venoms remain unbeaten and on top of the log with 30 points after 11 games.
Golola, speaking to the press after a laboured 1-0 win, commented that his side has played many games in a space of few days, traveling long distances I’m the process’s including a long trip to Arua to face Onduparaka and facing Kyetume at a soggy pitch took much out of his players.
“Am very impressed by the level of performance my boys have displayed because I know how much we have gone through,” started Golola.
“We have played many games and the boys are tired, there is body fatigue after traveling all those long distances. We have played at poor pitches like the soggy Namboole against Kyetume.
“Am hoping the next match we shall improve. We didn’t convert many chances but we shall go back to the drawing and see how we cam rectify our mistakes.”
Vipers have always squeezed out results even on their bad days but Bayo’s goals, eight in the league, have masked their poor displays.
