KCCA Football Club manager Mike Mutebi insists there is still room for improvement as his side continues to chase a third successive Uganda Premier League title.

The 12-time league champions cut the deficit to pace setters SC Villa to 3 points with a 2-0 win over UPDF Football Club on Monday at Lugogo.

And Mutebi was impressed with the performance against a side that was set out to defend.

“(It was a) good performance but this time reflective,” he told the media during a post match presser.

“As we continue playing our way – using the ball – you are insisting that you have to score. When you play with eight men behind the ball (as we did), the way we keep the ball and use it in those tight areas and eventually open up the lines is the biggest challenge we now have. We tried to do that today – had the ball, combinations in the final third until we scored a goal.

Despite dominating possession right from kick, KCCA only got the break through in the final fifteen minutes of the game with youngster Allan Okello doing the damage.

“The performance was good… We kept the ball better but we have to improve our ball circulation and make it fast. The bottom line is we keep the ball and that’s key because you dictate the terms but you have to circulate it faster.”

The Kasasiro return to action on Thursday when they take a short trip to Luzira to take on Maroons, a side that held them to a goalless draw in the season opener at Lugogo.
