Uganda Premier League table leaders KCCA FC shared spoils in a 1-1 draw with BUL FC at FUFA Technical Center, Njeru on Tuesday.
In the aftermath of the game, KCCA’s head coach Byekwaso said that he was not disappointed with the result noting that it is a point gained not two lost.
“I am not disappointed with this result, I am happy because this team is strong, they have been on the continent and they are third on the table,” Byekwaso told the media before adding.
“Having conceded first, it took a lot of effort for us to find an equalizer, yes we could have won the game but we lacked a bit of concentration, especially in the final third.”
“There is a moment where we could have lost this game because the opponents we played were also good users of the ball and almost all the chances were under pressure.”
“But it is a game behind us now and we shall take the point and prepare for our next game at home against Busoga on Friday.”
“And I am optimistic that we shall return to winning way though it will also not be an easy game because they are gaining momentum each game that goes by,” he added.
Midfielder Vincent Zziwa scored for the hosts as early as the 11th minute before Julius Poloto rescued a point for the visitors when he scored at the restart of the second half in the 46th minute.
The Kasasiro Boys dropped points for the first time in the last five games having won four consecutive games before they visited the Oil Manufacturers.
Byekwaso’s charges maintained the top spot with 26 points after 12 games while Alex Isabirye’s coached team also remained third with 24 points from the same number of games.
The 13-time UPL champions will return to action on Friday, December 16th as they host Busoga United at Lugogo.
Whereas the 2022 Uganda Cup champions will visit second-placed Vipers SC at Kitende on Saturday, December 17th.
