KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi says that Wakiso Giants has given his side a good test ahead of their CAF Champions league engagements.
KCCA FC managed to beat Wakiso Giants 2-0 in the 2019 FUFA Pilsner Super Eight encounter at Wakisha Resource centre.
This, was KCCA’s last competitive game before the side face Namibia’s African Stars in the preliminary round of the CAF Champions league qualifiers.
“This was a very good test,” noted coach Mutebi who was speaking to journalists after the victory. “They had good spells where they used the ball and tried to make us chase because we wanted that other side when we don’t have possession.”
“But my boys managed to associate very well in the midfield although we still have a lot of work especially on how we operate in the final third because we create chances but we don’t take them away.”
KCCA FC missed first choice goalkeeper Charles Lukwago while Patrick Kaddu came off the bench in what looked like a weakened lineup.
The side, despite having much of the ball, struggled to penetrate Wakiso’s back line before Mike Mutyaba set up Allan Okello to put the visitors in the lead.
It remained an end to end exchange, and Wakiso missed their few chances before Sadat Anaku doubled the advantage for KCCA late in the game amidts a heavy downpour.
“In the end it was a good test, and when we win and win very well, it gives you confidence. Generally, it was a good performance and a good game,” added coach Mutebi.
He praised his youngsters like Anaku and Samuel Kato.
“We promote kids after looking at their progress, they are young but the things they do exemplify people who are experienced and who have confidence.”
KCCA FC have so far made three additions, with John Revita, Simon Sserunkuma and Erisa Ssekisambu joining the Lugogo based side.
“The additions we made were forwards. We need to score more goals because the beauty of the game is to win well and score more goals. I do not care if we score six and concede three.
“Our goals last season came from all departments but we now want the forwards to take responsibility.”
KCCA FC will play African Stars away in Windhoek on August 9 before hosting the side in the return leg on August 23.
