The former champions recorded their fourth loss against the Venoms but the tactician is adamant they are still in the title race
KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi believes his charges fell against Vipers SC in the Ugandan Premier League after sleeping at work.
The Venoms collected the maximum points thanks to a 1-0 victory which was caused by Peter Magambo who scored an own goal. It was a fourth loss for the Kasasiro Boys after initial losses to Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) FC, SC Villa and BUL FC.
The experienced tactician has now pointed out why the garbage collectors failed to achieve a positive result. He further insisted that his charges are still in the league title race in the ongoing campaign.
“The vipers were more determined than us; our boys slept a little in the game”, Mutebi said after .
“I think the Vipers played well and deserved to win the game, [but] as I told you, we are still in the race. We will rectify our mistakes and try to compete with the others at the top.
“We have to play better football because we are not in a better position.”
After the loss, the Kasasiro Boys are on 27 points and in fourth place, nine behind the table tops the tax collectors.
Meanwhile, URA coach Sam Ssimbwa hailed his accusations for an impressive away record after beating Onduparaka FC 3-0 in their last UPL outing.
Steven Mukwala scored a brace as Cromwell Rwothomio found the back of the net once to give the tax collectors another victory to solidify their position at the top.
“The team played well and played according to the instructions. It was our biggest away win,” Ssimbwa said on the same portal.
“We scored three goals without conceding which was very good and I appreciate the demonstration outside the team because since we started the league, out of the eight games we have managed to win seven and one draw against Mbarara City. “
Mukwala leads the Premier League scorers chart with nine goals in 15 games while Rwothomio has scored six. Mukwala was signed from Maroons FC who was relegated in 2020 after becoming the top scorer with 13 goals.
“I am very happy with Steven [Mukwala] and Cromwell [Rwothomio] because, after one or two games, they both score and that is a good thing for us in our next games, ”added the former head coach of Sofapaka.
