Buddo SSS head coach Simon Mugerwa was Happy for the win but demands more from Kizza and some other players.

Though we did not have a good game, but at this stage,we focus more on three points. We are going to go back organise see how we get the 9 points remaining to win the title. I must say we are still let down by Kizza but we are going to try talk to him.

Despite the loss, Uganda Martyrs head coach Jimmy Mukubya was impressed by the boys performance.

We expected positive results, but the boys have done their best, we must accept Buddo team was better than us but we showed we could play as well, we never changed anything because we are playing a giant, but we played our way.
