KCCA FC captain Benjamin Ochan has commended his teammates for enduring the bad weather at the Kavumba Recreation Grounds to salvage a point against stubborn Bright Stars.
In the StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) game played on Tuesday, November, 2, KCCA had to come from behind in the second half to equalise in the one all draw affair.
The Kasasiro Boys got a goal through Ashraf ‘Fadiga’ Mugume’s trademark shot from the edge of the box to cancel out Nelson Ssenkatuuka’s 50 minute goal. Ochan, like the entire KCCA team, was not so pleased, but grateful for not losing.
“The boys did a great job, It was not exactly the result we wanted, but I can say I am glad at least we got a point away from home,” Ochan said after the game at Kavumba.
“It rained heavily and our plan was almost ruined, we were playing hit and run, we had no clear formula, and we ended up conceding first from a corner.”
“Then we had to resort back to playing our way, and managed to get that important goal through Mugume,” Ochan added.
The result sent KCCA to 13 points from five games, keeping them at the top of the table, but the Lugogo side has played a game more than second placed Vipers with 10 points, so all the three points would have done them even better.
“The whole team has done a great job in these first five games, but there are 25 more to go, so it is just the start and we need to work more,” the KCCA goalkeeper further noted.
“We have got to score more goals as we continue to solidify our backline, as well as possess the ball more in midfield to strike that balance in the team,” he added.
Ochan also admitted that Bright Stars gave KCCA a good check as they continue chasing the title, as he applauded them for giving his side a good challenge.
