KCCA FC head coach Mike Mutebi believes that his side’s one all draw with Police FC was a fair result to the team.
Mutebi’s return to the dugout saw KCCA play out a one all draw with Police at the StarTimes Stadium Lugogo on Thursday evening.
Mustafa Kizza scored for KCCA in first minute of the game with a brilliant free kick that was too powerful for the Police custodian Davies Mutebi to stop.
Juma Balinya brought matters on level terms five minutes to the final whistle after Jackson Nunda lost possession in a delicate area.
“It was a fair result for us, the game was balanced,” Mutebi said in the post-match press conference before adding.
“The players became complacent after scoring yet Police was playing with a lot of confidence, without pressure.”
“The responsibility of winning the league seems heavier to some of our players especially the experienced ones, but I still believe in the quality we have,” Mutebi added.
Much as KCCA FC scored early, they couldn’t capitalize on that to stretch their lead but Police were the better side in transition and dominated possession.
“Police was better than us on the day, our players still have a problem with the system, most of the midfielders were shaky but I hope they will adopt,” Mutebi said. However he believes that games of this kind make the league more competitive.
“Games like this make the league more competitive which is good for Ugandan football. I think the league will be won on final day, we competitors shall be on pressure but it is the best for the fans and football,” he noted.
Following the result, KCCA maintained their status on top of the 16 team log with 45 points, while Police maintained their seventh spot with 28 points.
