Following a frustrating goalless draw with Maroons at Luzira, KCCA manager Mike Mutebi was left to rue missed chances.

The Kasasiro were not as sharp and didn’t create enough chances against a side that hasn’t lost to any of the ‘big boys’ but Mutebi says he would be worried if his side wasn’t creating chances.

“First, I think this is a good result away from home,” said Mutebi in reference to the draw. “It adds to what we have but we need to match our playing style with goals,” he added.

We need to be more effective in the final third. We are creating the chances but not scoring goals. I would be worried if we were not creating chances.

The draw, second in three games so far leaves the Kasasiro five points adrift of log leaders SC Villa but the champions still have a game in hand over the Jogoos.

Mutebi admits its advantage SC Villa but says he isn’t worried about how rivals perform but rather ensure his team wins games.

“We are not worried about how other teams perform rather we have to be concerned about how we play as a team,” he emphasized. “This league is likely to be won on the final day and that means we have to keep fighting and keep going until the end. For now, its advantage SC Villa though,” he stressed.

A section of KCCA fans would rather their team win ugly than drop points beautifully but that’s not what Mutebi thinks.

We are not going to sacrifice our identity of playing football ‘our way’ because we have to win games rather we must keep playing our style and add goals to that.

The former SC Villa and Maroons tactician also hailed the Prisons side for the good season.

I think we should instead give credit to Maroons for they are organised and play good football. It’s testimony that even other big boys dropped points here.

KCCA’s next game is away to Onduparaka on Tuesday April 17, 2018 in Arua.
