“No margin for error in Arua Hill visit to Mbale,” Mbalangu cautions lads ahead of Kataka clash


“No margin for error in Arua Hill visit to Mbale,” Mbalangu cautions lads ahead of Kataka clash

Hussein Mbalangu has accepted Arua Hill SC has not been doing enough to protect their lead in some previous fixture including the most recent.

Mbalangu witnessed Arua Hill throw away a lead six minutes to full-time at Bukedea on Sunday consequently losing two points and missing chance to maintain initial two point lead after the game ended 1-1 with Blacks Power.

The gaffer who has refuted Arua Hill are playing sudden death football but rather attributed the events to “redeemable laxity” has promised the same will not repeat and has revealed his warning to the lads as they attempt to maintain their status on the log.

“We have made enough emphasis to the players that there is no room for error, no margin for error, no excuse and no silly mistakes,” he mentioned to club media after today’s training session.

“No resting, no relaxing and game management must start from the word go to the end because often times we concede last minute goals because players relax a bit thinking it’s over.

“We shall handle the game minute per minute so that we don’t make those mistakes we’ve been making before in games with Blacks Power and Gaddafi where the games were actually won.” He continued.

The gaffer knows the game may ultimately prove so difficult as opposed to the first round meeting when Arua Hill cruised passed Kataka FC 3-0.

He however says the team already has a mechanism in place to win after having opportunity to study the opponents during their 1-0 win over Calvary on Monday.

“We had opportunity to watch their game against Calvary and have understood their style of play and strong points,” he said.

“Yeah, it’s going to be hard game because they are physically muscular but we have a mechanism in place to play them.

While conceding to fact Kataka may pose a serious threat he equally has said he is aware that they cannot afford to lose tomorrow’s game and will look to ensure their recent blip does not develop to a character when they take on Kataka FC on Wednesday afternoon.
