URA worried of missed chances

It was without doubt a professional performance from the Ugandan champions as URA set one foot in the first round of the Caf Champions League following a comfortable 3-0 victory over Lesotho Correctional Services (LCS) at Namboole on Saturday.

Like he did against Zambiaís Zanaco in 2010, skipper Manko Kaweesa opened the scoring in the first half before Sula Bagala and Augustine Nsumba added the others after recess to help the Bell Super League champions post their biggest ever win in the competition. URA dominated the game and the scoreline should have been bigger, leaving the tax collectorsí coach Alex Isabirye ruing the missed chances heading into the return leg in Maseru in the opening week of March.

"I am concerned about the chances we missed," Isabirye said in a post-match interview. "They had shots at our goal, too, and could have scored. But itís good we used some of our chances and more importantly didnít concede." LCS had two real shots on target throughout the 90 minutes compared to URAís 10.

But Isabirye refuses to rest on his laurels. "No, no, no," he retorted when asked whether he thought they were as good as through, "There is still a lot of work to do."

That sentiment was echoed by LCS coach Mosholi íShoesí Mokhothu, who, despite admitting the best side won, insists itís not over.

"We are not out yet," he said, "Today, they (URA) were fast and denied us space. We can do the same."

Mokhothu, spotting a white jersey and blue quarter pants, added. "Our shooting at goal was very poor and itís among the few things we should work on (for the second leg).

Bagala and Vincent Kayizzi ruled either wing, Oscar Agaba and Kaweesa marshaled the midfield - until the URA skipper came off injured at half time to be replaced by Hamis Kitagenda. Simeon Masaba and company were hardly troubled at the back while Robert Ssentongo kept the visitorsí backline busy but without finding the net before over 1000 spectators. But both missed good chances.

URA now have the best chance to go to Maseru and complete the task but their away record in which they have drawn goalless with Zambiaís Zesco, lost 3-0 to Cameroonís Corton Sport, and another Zambian outfit Zanaco 4-0, suggests that itís not all over.
