KCCA FC head coach Mike Mutebi has admitted his side strived to get a win against minnows CATDA FC in the Uganda Cup Round of 64 on Friday.
The Kampala Region side put up a brave fight against the reigning StarTimes Uganda Premier League champions before falling 2-0 courtesy of goals from defender John Revita and debutant Moses Aliro.
“They asked a lot of questions and we almost answered. It is the best side we have played against this season,” Mutebi said before adding.
“They were threatening in every department, however, a big credit to my lads who responded well and managed to win the game,” he added.
CATDA tactician Richard Amatre a former coach for KCCA was pleased with the display of his charges, though he felt they showed much respect to KCCA by not utilising their chances.
“It was a commendable performance from my boys. We knew our opponents were better than us in everything but I told them not to mind and play our game, we created many chances but our finishing let us down,” he noted.
URA FC was also 4-0 winners over Lugazi Municipal Council FC to proceed to the next round while BUL FC were knocked out by Mvara Boys.
