Express FC continued their fine run of form as they overcame Busoga United 1-0 on Friday.
Frank Kalanda scored the only goal of the game, dispatching a first half penalty after Eric Kambale was brought down in the area by Busoga custodian Omedwa Rogers.
It was arguably Express’s hardest game as they lost two players two injury and struggled to see out the result.
Arthur Kiggundu was lost to a knee injury inside the opening 10 minutes before Charles Musiige went off at half time with a hip issue.
Speaking after the game, Express head coach Wasswa Bbosa expressed his distaste towards the league’s tight schedule.
“We have been able to win and that is the most important thing. Bbosa stated.
“When you look at the players and the way the league is designed, these players play a game almost after every two days.
“We could not offer the best because these players are fatigued after playing back to back games consistently.
This was Express’s 8th league game in just 28 days, prompting Bbosa to say that the players are ‘not machines’.
“We can not play like this and i complain to UPL because we can not play a game every two days.
“These players are not machines, they are human. That is why the game was so slow because the players are fatigued.”
Express return to action on Tuesday away to UPDF FC.
They currently sit top of the standings with 28 points from 12 games.
Vipers who are yet to play their match-day 12 game away to Mbarara, are second, just a point behind the Red Eagles.
