Arua Hill SC were thrashed 4-1 on home turf, the Barifa Stadium, by Busoga United in the Uganda Premier League on Tuesday.

The entire display on the evening was far from convincing against a struggling team, with the assistant head coach Ahmed Borini having to own up for the result.

“It’s too shameful, honestly it’s very shameful to talk about it,” he said to the press after the drubbing.

“We can’t lose like this at home, it’s so shameful. But all in all it has happened and we have nothing to do about it,” Borini added.

Busoga scored through Laban Tibita, who supplemented a quick-fire Bashamu Mugwa hat-trick, with all goals coming in the opening 45 minutes. Skipper Rashid Toha had the hosts’ consolation.

“When the result is like that, the technical team is responsible and we carry the blame,” Borini apologetically noted.

“On behalf of the technical team we carry the blame but we have to go back, sit and work hard to change things in the face of our fans.”

Borini, however, wants the players to take part of the blame as they undermined and underestimated the opponent.

“I remember telling you it’s one of the hardest games because if you look at it there was slight undermining from the players, we have been warning them the whole week about what this game presented.”

Arua Hill descended from fourth to fifth, but will hope for a quick response in their next game against Soltilo Bright Stars at Kavumba Recreation Grounds.

Busoga, on other hand, stayed 12th and on 27 points, four clear of relegation. They will host KCCA FC in their final home match on May 23rd.
