Wakiso Giants head Coach Douglas Bamweyana was left to rue missed opportunities as his side squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with SC Viilla on Wednesday.
Kipson Atuheire and an own goal from Joseph Nsubuga gave Wakiso Giants the two-goal lead but Abdallah Salim second half brace denied Wakiso maximum points.
Unsatisfied Bamweyana believes his side would have scored as many as 12goals but it wasn’t their day.
“This is probably one of the most painful draws one can have to take because we could easily have scored 12. Said Bamweyana after the game.
“We had up to 8 good opportunities in the first half and more in the second but it wasn’t our day because despite that, we had a healthy lead and somehow lost it.”
Wakiso have consistently surrendered leads this season and it is something Bamweyana says they must work on.
“We certainly have to work on our maturity and we probably help our players with their directness and errors they showed by us controlling a few things.
It is not the first time it (squandering a lead) is happening but we have to act upon it.
“We made a mess of few things against Villa but they honestly didn’t deserve to take anything from the game.
“This is unfortunate and unfair but that is how football is.”
After 7 games, the Purple Sharks are 11th on the Uganda premier league table with 9 points.
Douglas Bamweyana’s who are still unbeaten side will take on URA FC away from home in their next game.
