KCCA FC manager Mike Mutebi believes his side is still operating at around 45% despite a convincing 4-1 win against traditional rivals SC Villa in the league at Lugogo.

Defending Champions KCCA moved to second place, but are seven points adrift of leaders Vipers but still have a game in hand.

Reacting on the enormous win against Villa, Mutebi commented that his side had a good game as he had anticipated and rated it 50% on the day.

The result came days after his side lost 2-1 away to Mbarara City FC to suffer their third loss of the season.

“This (win) was not a reaction from us after losing to Mbarara, beating Villa was a must and we needed to play the way we are supposed to play because we are the best team in Uganda and there is no question about that,” Mutebi told the press.

“This team has not reached where I want them to be, much needs to be done. We have blown hot and cold, yes. We have been operating at around 45% but today I think we gave out our 50%.

“Many expect a lot from these kids, my players have raised the bar high for themselves and they have to live to everyone’s expectations. We had a good game to do but we could have scored even six.”

Joseph Kafumbe, Erisa Ssekisambu, Mustafa Kizza and Allan Okello were on target for the 13 time winners in a one sided affair at Lugogo.

Youngster Sam Ssenyonjo missed big chances and would have scored in his third straight game. He paid for his misses with three assists on the day.

Mutebi was also not convinced with individual performances from substitute Keziron Kizito who was later taken off for Nicholas Kasozi and his centre back pairing of John Revita and Samuel Kato.

He blamed the centre backs for giving away possession in dangerous areas and criticised Keziron for failing to read the game before he was introduced on.

He added:

“We must take the game seriously because much is expected from players and to fulfill them you must be smart. It was a good game though unfortunate we did not keep a clean sheet.

“Scoring would not be our problem but keeping a clean sheet.

The gaffer praises youngster and man of the match Ssenyonjo, describing his performance as ‘Superb’.
