Maroons held Uganda Premier League defending champions, KCCA FC to a goalless draw at the Luzira Prisons ground and Mike Mutebi says it’s good results.
With less than 8 premier league matches to go, the draw Maroons played with KCCA FC now gives advantage to SC Villa and has put KCCA FC’s hopes at risk.
But Mike who considers identity over winning although understands challenge his side is into, believes the race isn’t over yet.
“Good results away from home. It adds to what we have. They are creating the chances but they are not scoring. I would be worried, if we are not creating chances. But I don’t know when we shall start scoring. The bottom line is they are playing the way I like them to play, although we are not scoring, that’s the only worry. It concerns me that we are not scoring but we are not going to sacrifice identity. We are not going to sacrifice because you are saying we are desperate, we want to win so you just play anyhow, you know long balls, no. We are not going to sacrifice identity. The way we play has taken us to where we are, so why should we divorce from it?”
The draw entitles Asaph Mwebaze’s side to the 6th position on the log with 33 points in 24 games meanwhile KCCA FC remains second on the table with 44 points, in 22 games.
The Kasasiro boys although have played a game less than table leaders, SC Villa leads comfortable with five points.
Nonetheless Mike Mutebi who loves passing football and was excited with the way Maroons played against his lads said Villa doesn’t worry him.
“I can’t worry about Villa. We are the ones looking over their shoulders. Actually they have the advantage now. But that does not stop us from fighting. Like I said, the championship is going to go up to the wire, so we are going to fight and try to defend our championship.”
KCCA FC will visit Arua to play tricky side, Onduparaka FC at the Green light Stadium on 17th April in their next fixture.
