KCCA FC coach Mike ‘Hillary’ Mutebi has lashed out at his 3 front men for failing ‘to use their seniority’ to handle the game as the defending champions fell 2-1 to Bright Stars at the Kavumba recreation center.
Mike says, the trio of Nigerian striker John
Odumegwu, Erisa Sekisambu and Mike Mutyaba failed to the game plan.
…they failed to replicate what I told them before the start of the game.
They have been under pressure, losing possession recklessly and shooting carelessly at the goal.
Mutebi said angrily.
Within the first minute of the game KCCA had already conceded a goal thanks to Joseph Janjali easy tap in off Brian Kayanja cross from the right wing.
After conceding, Mutebi’s men started piling pressure on the hosts but their defence continued to clear everything from their side with a guide of their goal keeper Godwin Kiwanuka Buule.
However, Bright Stars could not resist attacking pressure from Erisa Sekisambu , Mike Mutyaba, John Odumegwu, and eventually, Muzamir Mutyaba forced an equaliser with a minute to close the first half.
On the return for the second half, Bright Stars continued to resist keeping all the visitors advances at bay before forcing off Muzamir Mutyaba with a shoulder dislocation, paving way for teenager Steven Serwadda in the 58th minute.
Substitute Ronald Sempala snatched the winner for the home side when he beat Jamil Malyamungu from close range in the 79th minute to hand KCCA FC a devastating 2-1 defeat.
Bright Stars is now 12th and out of the relegation zone they found themselves in after a below par first round. They have now collected 16 points out of 17 games while KCCA now falls to a 7-point deficit to table leaders Vipers with 35 points out of 17 games.
KCCA will play against Tooro United at Lugogo where as Bright Stars will visit URA in Ndejje on Saturday.
