KCCA FC head coach Morley Byekwaso has warned his players not to be distracted by the background noise – with many writing them off already in the title race.
Byekwaso was speaking following KCCA’s 1-0 victory over Onduparaka FC on Sunday, noted that the title race is still open and anything can happen in the remaining 10 league games.
“We have now got the moral of pushing for more because we still have games to play,” Byekwaso said after the game before adding.
“Having reached 37 points, we need to put in more effort and see that we keep on winning games as we continue to chase those ahead of us,” he added.
After matchday 20, the Kasasiro Boys are level on 37 points with Police FC but occupy fourth place on goal difference and seven points behind log leaders URA FC who are on 44 points.
They picked up a rare away win at the Aba Bet Green Light Stadium in Arua thanks to Sadat Anaku’s 79th-minute strike.
It was KCCA’s second win away to the Caterpillars, with their first coming in October 2018 when they were 2-1 victors.
“This has been our first win here in a while. I want to congratulate the boys for the work they have done because it has been hectic. Onduparaka played well as always when they are at home. I salute them,” Byekwaso noted.
“I have not seen them attacking very much like this. Ondupraraka did that mostly through Living Kabon he is a dangerous player.”
“Kabon caused a lot of trouble to us and, unfortunately, they did not score, but, their attacking approach was positive,” he added.
After two long trips to Mbarara and Arua, respectively, KCCA will return home and host Soltilo Bright Stars FC on Thursday, April 29, a side they edged 2-1 on the opening day of the season.
While 11th placed Onduparaka will visit Betway Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku to take on third-placed Express FC on Wednesday.
