Vipers put up a stunning comeback from a goal behind to defeat KCCA FC 2-1 in the game played on Tuesday at Phillip Omondi stadium.
Mutebi slammed his players especially defenders Timothy Awany and skipper Dennis Okot for clumsy defending that he thinks cost the team.
“I have to put it straight. That was school boy defending, silly mistakes that cannot be tolerated at such a stage,” said the furious manager in a post-match press briefing.
“It was just a case of being reckless and loss of concentration and in the end it cost us all three points,” Mutebi added.
Mutebi went ahead to concede, Vipers were the better side on the day but believes they will bounce back to keep their title hopes alive.
“They (Vipers) were the better side and deserved to win but this doesn’t mean we are out of the title race. We still believe we can bounce back soon,” he noted.
Geoffrey Sserunkuma gave KCCA FC the lead in the 15th minute but Vipers rallied back in the second half through Tony Odur and Geoffrey Wasswa.
Defender Timothy Awany lost possession to Odur who did no mistake to fire home while another defence lapse saw Wasswa score another goal for the visitors. This was KCCA FC’s first loss at home this season in 11 games.
KCCA FC still remain top of the league on 48 points, same as second placed SC Villa but with two games in hand and they take on Express this Friday
