By halftime, Patrick Kaddu had completed a first half hatrick as KCCA FC defeated Paidha Black Angels 3-0 in the only StarTimes Uganda Premier League game played on Tuesday at Lugogo.
The three goals happened to be the only ones in a fixtures the hosts wasted so many chances and didn’t show up for the second half at all, something that angered their manager Mike Mutebi.
“We relaxed especially in the second half, we didn’t do enough to punish the opponent, and I am not pleased with the performance,” Mutebi told journalists.
“We expect a lot from our players. I want to see Mutyaba’s (Muzamir) presence at the pitch. The issue of complacency is still a problem but we are looking forward at solving it,” he added.
He however believes Paidha gave them a good test ahead of their 2018/2019 Total CAF Confederation Cup return leg tie against Mtibwa Sugar on Saturday.
“Paidha had many players behind the ball, a strategy that Mtibwa also uses, this will give us the opportunity to possess the ball and try to open up their team”.
The win on Tuesday is KCCA’s eighth of the season and they now move onto 27 points on top of the log, four ahead of Onduparaka who are in second.
Action in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League resumes on Wednesday with defending champions Vipers SC away to BUL at the Njeru Technical Center.
