KCCA FC assistant manager Morley Byekwaso has hailed his side after their 1-0 win over Onduparaka FC in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at Lugogo on Tuesday evening.
It was second game for Byekwaso in charge as KCCA FC manager Mike Mutebi is serving a tour match ban imposed on him by FUFA.
IStriker Patrick Kaddu scored KCCA FC’s goal from 12 yards after Allan Kyambadde was fouled in the forbidden area in the 62nd minute.
“It has been a very physical game and we struggled a lot to get maximum points, which is a very pleasing result,” Byekwaso said before adding.
“It was 50/50 from the onset, Onduparaka came to compete and they deserve the credit although we came out with three points. We really showed character,” he added.
KCCA FC who sit top of the 16 team log on on 40 points are looking at the league title to avoid a trophy less season since Mutebi was appointed ahead of the 2015/2016 season.
“In this second round, we are playing every game like final. As the technical team, we work hard to keep confidence in our players because we must try our level best to win the league,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Kasasiro Boys midfielder Julius Poloto said that as players, they work hard in order to win the league.
“The pressure to deliver is there but it is our responsibility as players to relieve it because our target is winning the league since it is the only competitive we are remaining in,” said Poloto.
KCCA FC play Bright Stars next in Mwererwe on Saturday before hosting BUL FC at Lugogo next Tuesday.
