“Our plan was to secure all the three points but it is unfortunate that we have to go with the one point,” said the AruaHill SC assistant coach Ssenabulya Tonny Kintu after a 1-1 draw with UPDF FC in a Uganda Premier League match played at the Bombo Military grounds.
In a post match interview with the media, Ssenabulya revealed that a draw is not a bad result since the one point earned helps in pushing the team ahead as they look forward to the next game.
“The point is important to us and for now we are going to review our mistakes as we look forward to playing our next game at home,” he added.
