KCCA FC have conceded eight goals in eight league games, an average of a goal per game and head coach Mike Mutebi has been left searching for answers on how he can find the balance at either end of the pitch.
KCCA FC have also scored 21 goals this season, only Vipers at 22 have scored more and no other team has hit the 20 goal mark this season after just eight outings.
And while Mutebi continues to be concerned with the porous defending, the answer to his team’s lacklustre defending is to score as many goals and eventually outscore their opponents.
“Yes we are bothered with the way we are defending,” Mutebi told media in his pre-match press conference ahead of their visit to Wakiso.
“But if we can score more goals even if we win 5-3 I do not care, that is the solution.”
“People come to the stadiums to watch games with goals those draws of 0-0, 1-1 do not appease them at all.”
“But as a coach, I have to, first of all, make sure we do not concede goals but as a football fan, I want to be happy when games end with 5-3 score lines.”
The three-time league winner also noted: “Because as a fan, I want to have something that I will talk about when I go out there.”
“Other than having a dull game throughout but it is good that this season most of the teams are scoring some good number of goals,” he added.
Even with their perceived porous defence, only three teams have conceded less than the Kasasiro Boys (Express, Police and URA) while they have conceded as much as their hosts on Tuesday Wakiso Giants and UPDF.
