Miscommunication and Selfishness Costed Us – Uganda Martyrs Captain Nabulobi

Uganda Martyrs HS Women football club captain Patience Nabulobi has blamed miscommunication and selfishness for their loss in the league opener against She Coprates on Sunday at MUBs grounds Nakawa.

Uganda Martyrs lost 2-0 at the expense of debutant Grace Nasongo and Favour Nambatya’s first half goals.

“We failed to communicate and link up in the final third, we didn’t give ourselves chances, we have been so selfish on scoring opportunities,” Nabulobi said after the game.

“Generally, these results have not treated us so well, but we know this has been our start we are going to reorganise in next games.”

Brenda Munyana missed a penalty which would have been an equaliser – Elizabeth Nakigozi and Anitah Namata were better penalty takers on the pitch for the visitors instead.

Uganda Martyrs assistant coach Freda Ayerango, said that the first match is always unpredictable.

“The 90 minutes were not easy but usually the first game is always like that, so unpredictable, so you have to sort your self out here and there in such game so that you fine tune in the next games,” Said Freda.

“So this loss meant a lot to us, you know we are missing very many key players, so this loss has given us the urge and courage to go back and sort out few mistakes seen and we will bounce back stronger in the next games.”

The side missed Kevin Nakacwa who is recovering from little pain and Catherine Nagadya who had traveled with women U20 national team to Ghana.

They will make a long trip to Masindi, to face off defending champions Lady Doves in their next fixture on Saturday 12th.
