They were very conscious going into their StarTimes Uganda Premier League tie against Mbarara City at kakyeka Stadium but KCCA FC badly wanted to leave the ground with three points.
the log leaders left with one, just like it has been the case on all the occasions they have faced Mbarara City in the league, now for the second straight season.
KCCA FC assistant manager Morley Byekwaso who took charge of the game as suspended Mike Mutebi watched from the sidelines, he left Kakyeka a satisfied man.
“It was an open game, we created chances, they created chances but we couldn’t win it,” Byekwaso told www.football-256.com.
“We are happy with the outcome because the league is a marathon, we shall go back and improve on the areas we need to improve and see how we can approach the next game,” he added.
KCCA FC was taking on a side with the best home record this season, much as they also boast of the best away form so far.
It was Mbarara’s second draw at home, it was KCCA FC’s second on the road, and they have only lost once against Express.
“Our defenders are gaining confidence, we panicked a lot in the first half but we improved in the second, we must play with our midfielders so that we can have a good relationship with the game. It didn’t work well in the first half but in the second half it did and we got the chances in plenty.”
“We were playing against a very competitive side and they proved it today, we tried to play for a result but they also wanted the result, they are not third by mistake,” Byekwaso noted.
The result might be a big confidence boost as they host Onduparaka at home on February 5th, Byekwaso wants to see his team ready for the tie.
