RESULTS: KAGAME CECAFA CUP
Azam 1-0 KCC | Gor Mahia 2-1 Yanga | KMKM 1-0 Telecom | Malakia 2-1 Adama City
Coaches Mike Mutebi and Sam Simbwa will need to ask their players to be sharper in front of goal following a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Tanzanian side Azam FC in the Kagame CECAFA Club Championship in Dar es Salaam on Sunday.
On a weekend that also saw Uganda Kobs beaten 4-0 by Egypt in the 3rd round first leg qualifier of the Africa U-23 Championship, there was hope that KCC FC would quickly help erase the bad memories of the result from Saturday’s action in Alexandria.
That didn’t happen as KCC conceded an early goal through John Bocco. KCC piled a lot of pressure on Azam but couldn’t yield a goal.
Stylish Micheal Birungi hit the post during the first half.
KCC FC will return to action on Wednesday when they play Ethiopian side Adama City.
Meanwhile Uganda Cranes left winger Brian Majwega is likely to miss the Kagame CECAFA club championship with a throat infection.
Majwega missed Azam’s 1-0 win over KCC FC with the same problem.
