Wrong attitude to blame for Sport-S poor league form
Posted Tuesday, May 6 2014 at 14:29
Four-time NSSF Volleyball League champions Sport-S find themselves in unfamiliar territory after playing just two games this season.
They lie sixth with three points on the ten team log.
Sport-S lost their league opener to KAVC in straight sets, a game Sport-S showed no signs of a team chasing a record fifth title.
“Players don’t want to train,” said Sport-S’ former captain Warren Muhangi. “During training everyone has an excuse after training all the excuses are gone.”
“Everyone is comfortable with what we achieved in the preseason,” he added
However, Sport-S rediscovered that preseason form that saw them win three open tournament titles in four finals to defeat KCCA 3-1 in their second league encounter.
“We have always been like that and gone on to win titles,” said Sport-S’ coach Benon Mugisha.
“Though I agree it is not fine and we are trying our best to make sure everyone trains so that we can make winning a habit again,” Mugisha added.
The side has also seen new signings Dickens Otim and Ivan Ongom struggle with injuries.
Otim has endured through games with an injured finger while Ongom has struggled with his ankle which he twisted during the Jinja Open in March.
Sport-S play fourth placed Ndejje Sharks who are yet to lose a game, tomorrow at the MTN Arena in Lugogo.
