Morley Byekwaso got off to a perfect start as KCCA FC interim manager with a dominant 3-0 victory over BUL Bidco at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo on Friday afternoon.
The former KCCA midfielder succeeded former boss Mike Mutebi who was sacked on Monday.
And he did register his first win courtesy of a performance that will encourage the club’s fans as some of the marginalised players came to the fore.
The Kasasiro Boys got down to business early on, Denis Iguma producing the first offensive threat for the home side after 13 minutes.
While Charles Lwanga failed to connect with Filbert Obenchan’s inviting cross moments later.
The hosts kept on snapping at the heels of their visitors until the decisive moment at the stroke of half-time, Obenchan arriving at the far post to power home Bright Anukani’s free kick.
KCCA added a second at the start of the second half, Charles Lwanga rounding the goalkeeper before slotting into an empty net for his eighth goal of the season.
Assistant captain Julius Poloto was ten minutes into the second half, for his first appearance in over a year since completing 90 minutes against Proline in what was the final league game before the COVID-19 lockdown.
He did not take long to give an indication of what the club has missed as he agonisingly saw his free-kick from 25 yards rattled the crossbar.
He did not have to wait long to etch his name on the score sheet as his sumptuous shot from the edge of the box completed a fabulous team goal and effectively put the game beyond their visitors.
It is the sixth time that KCCA have won by three or more this season as they climbed back to fourth on the log on 30 points.
BUL on the other hand dropped to 10th as they suffered their eighth defeat of the season.
KCCA turn their attention to the Stanbic Uganda Cup where they host second division side Nyamityobora at Lugogo on April 7, before the return leg on Saturday, April 10 in Mbarara.
BUL FC will face Black Power with the first leg to be played in Bukedea before they host the second leg in Jinja.
