KCCA FC continued with their goal scoring form in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League beating Police 6-3 on Friday evening at the StarTimes stadium Lugogo.
That didn’t satisfy manager Mike Mutebi who is preacher of ‘punish the opponent’ when you have an opportunity.
Like it has been the norm, KCCA FC created chances and took a 5-1 lead into the break but switched off in the second half like it has been in their past three games at least.
“6-3 was not satisfactory we could have scored more goals but the players were carried away especially the defence,” Mutebi said in the post match press conference.
“Punish the opponent if you get an opportunity to do, today we had everything we needed to score more goals but that didn’t happen,” he added.
Midfielder Julius Poloto opened the floodgates after 15 minutes, five minutes later Muzamiru Mutyaba shot from outside the 18 yard area to double KCCA FC’s lead.
Just Two minutes after Muzamiru doubling the lead, Mike Mutyaba curled home a beauty to stretch the home team’s advantage.
KCCA FC controlled the entire game and looked at causing more damage, Jackson Nunda took advantage of a poor clearance from a corner to tap home at close range to make it 4-0.
The hosts had one more trick up their sleeve to end the half with five goals, Muzamiru Mutyaba sealed it in the 41st minute.
Juma Balinya got a consolation for the visitors just before the centre ref Waiswa Muzamiru halted play for a break.
The obliterating continued after the break although Police tried to stage a comeback, Juma Balinya got his second on the day in the 56th minute to try and reduce the deficit to 5-2.
Mike Mutebi rang the changes bringing on striker Patrick Kaddu for one of the goal scorers Jackson Nunda in the 70th minute, two minutes later Kaddu beat the entire Police defence to slot home and make it six.
Police’s Kakooza Derrick made it 6-3 but that pretty much summed up the day’s festivities.
Efforts to talk to Police FC head coach Abdullah Mubiru after the game proved futile as he turned down an invite to the post match press conference.
KCCA FC sit 8 points clear after the win while Police move a spot down to 7th on 20 points.
Elsewhere, Tooro United away in Fort Portal beat Ndejje Lions 1-0 courtesy of an early Allan Kayiwa strike in the 21st minute.
The win pushes Tooro United to 11th on the log with 17 points, Ndejje are still tick on 18 points and lie in the red zone of the table.
In Arua, Livingstone Mbabazi’s return did work out as planned after his Mbarara City side played out a goalless draw with the hosts Onduparaka.
Both sides maintain their third and fourth status on the table with 24 points, only separated by goal difference.
