We Had Done Homework On Express – Sempigi

Arua Hill Assistant coach Sadiq Ssempigi says that they had done homework on Express following their stunning 2-0 win at Wankulukuku.

The newbies shocked the defending champions thanks to goals from Robert Eseru and Rashid Kawawa.

Ssempigi stated: “Our strategy came out very well as planned. We planned for the opponent and we looked at how they’ve been performing in the previous encounters and indeed it worked out for us. We saw Express played in CECAFA and other competitions, it was difficult for them to beat us.”

“Express aren’t more tactical; they more direct and energetic. They can run you over. All you can do is contain them and you can see it didn’t work out in the first half but in the second half we left the ball to them and got them on break thats why we managed to score two goals which is good to go for our first game as we prepare for the next encounters.”

Arua Hill will have Alfred Leku to thank after the former Express striker put up a man of the match performance.

Leku set Eseru to open the scores and was greatly involved in the second.

“We have good players in the whole squad but we had to bring in those with UPL experience,” Ssempigi explained.

“Leku had a good game as it was clearly seen, he put up a man of match performance.

“When you look at our signing, we really went for those who match UPL level, Eseru coming in for the third season and scoring on his debut, Ssekamatte off the bench and setting up a goal and we are really grateful as the technical team.”

Ssempigi who worked with Livingston Mbabazi at Mbarara City last season, says that their main objective is to stay in the League “but we also want to finish in the top four.”
