Interim Coach Jackson Magera believes the team is needs to changes mentality,
“We want to at least change our mentality and play with responsibility in most moments of the game,” he said shortly after the game.
NEC suffered a 3-0 defeat to SC Villa at Wankulukuku on their 3rd outing but recovered to win against UPDF in the fourth at the same venue where they defeated their landlords.
The defeat leaves KCCA FC in a difficult situation having parted ways with Portuguese coach, Sergio Daniel Moniz Traguil, who was appointed in June on a two-year deal, after just four games and replaced him with former assistant on interim basis.
The 13-time Uganda Premier League Champions and 10-time Uganda Cup winners are under pressure having not tested any title since the 208/19 season when they won the Uganda Premier League under Mike Mutebi.
Rumours have linked the club with the possible recruitment of former Police FC coach Abdallah Mubiru as the search for a solution to the unending troubles continue at the club which have sparked controversy and rage amongst the club’s administration and fans as well.
KCCA will face another winless side in Arua Hills next in the Uganda Premier League on 31st October at the Paridi Stadium in Adjuman while the NEC will host Gadafi on 1st November in Lugogo.
