KCCA Football Club gave up a two-goal lead in the final ten minutes to draw with Police Football Club in the Uganda Premier League on Friday at Namboole.

It was the second consecutive draw in the League for the Kasasiro who have not picked maximum points in the last four games in all competitions.

After a 1-1 draw with Soana on Tuesday, the defending champions failed yet again to go past Police despite being in control for most parts of the game.

And manager Mike Mutebi pointed to loss of concentration as the reason his charges gave up the two-goal cushion.

“We failed to keep the intensity we put out at the start, so the players lost concentration and the opponents went ahead to hurt us,” he reasoned.

Mutebi went on to say that the two draws have not derailed their title ambitions as it is a matter of going back to the drawing board and sort the few mistakes.

“It is a marathon, we are still on but we must learn to concentrate if we are leading a game.

“We shall go back to the drawing board and try to iron out the mistakes we have committed today and make sure we return to winning ways soon,” he told the club website.

The tactician believes the slip is a motivating factor to players heading into forthcoming fixtures that include home games against Bright Stars on Tuesday and El Masry on Saturday.

“Of course we failed to get the result we wanted but we won’t dwell on that, we need to put today’s game at the back of our minds and see how we improve.

“It is a wake-up call to the players and I believe this will motivate them to be vigilant and focused in our next games,” he noted.
