Saturday result

SC Villa 2-1 KCCA

Mike Mutebi, the KCCA manager, insists they are still in a good position to defend the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) title despite a struggled start to the season.

The 12-time winners suffered their first defeat of the season, losing 2-1 to rivals SC Villa on Saturday in Masaka.

This left them sixth on 10 points, four fewer than leaders Onduparaka.

But with only seven out of 28 matches played, Mutebi remains confident they are still in control of their destiny.

“When you look back at the last two championships we have won,” he is quoted on the club website.

“The events are a bit similar; dropping points but the opposition not taking the advantage.

“A couple of good results will get us where we should be and I’m confident we shall get there, it’s just a matter of time.”

KCCA next play Masavu on November 4 at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

“We must start winning games but at the same time playing with the right identity which we are trying to instill in the team and there is progress,” added Mutebi.

The manager also credited SC Villa, who frustrated the champions throughout the match.

“Villa were the better side,” admitted Mutebi, “They did everything right and made life hard for us from the first whistle. But we shall bounce back.”
