That’s how my team should play – KCCA coach Mike Hillary Mutebi praises his boys after smashing Proline FC

Kampala Capital City Authority Football Club (KCCA FC) coach Mike Hillary Mutebi has praised his boys for running riot against Proline Football Club in the Lugogo derby.

“That’s how they are supposed to be playing every game. I am satisfied with their performance,” Mike Mutebi said after his side claimed a comfortable 4-0 win over struggling opponents Proline in a game played at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

Goals from Sam Ssenyonjo late in the first half and a 64th-minute strike from Nicholas Kasozi before an Allan Okello brace late in the game were enough to put aside newly promoted Proline.

Mujib’s men also got chances to bounce back but forward Edrisa Lubega and midfielders Bright Anukani and Joseph Mandela on many occasions failed to convert.

Meanwhile, the win meant that KCCA is now only two points behind league leaders Vipers Sports Club for the first round of the season. The second round is expected to start early next year.

KCCA has 32 points in 15 games whereas Vipers have 34 points from the same number of games.

Meanwhile, in a game that also saw KCCA’s Julius Poloto returning to the lineup after close to nine months of absence suffering from an injury.

To cap up his return, the winger who replaced Sam Ssenyonjo in the 80th minute set up Allan Okello second goal and fourth of the game.

With now only 15 games left for each team to the league’s closure, Poloto returns to the squad at the right time as Mutebi said adding that he will be a vital player in the title race.

“There is no doubt about his abilities and we think he will be important in our title ambitions. He came on and made an impact, assisting on our final goal,” Mutebi said after the game.

“It is good to have him back after recovering from an injury that has seen him out for a long time because these are the kids on which this project was built on,” Mutebi said after the game.

Poloto is one of the few players that have been promoted to the senior team right from KCCA’s academy but his spell with the main team has been hit hard by many concurrent injuries.

However, Mutebi is optimistic his boy is fully fit this time around and will surely add a lot to his side.

“He is a KCCA boy through and through and you can see the adoration from the crowd. I hope he stays fit because he surely has a lot to offer in our title defence,” Mutebi added.
