KCCA Football Club assistant coach Morley Byekwaso took charge of his second game in absence of head coach Mike Mutebi who is serving a four-match touchline ban.

KCCA defeated Onduparaka 1-0 courtesy of Patrick Kaddu’s second-half penalty on Tuesday at the SatrTimes Stadium in Lugogo.

Not until the penalty was awarded after Allan Kyambadde went down easily, Onduparaka’s goalkeeper Nicholas Sebwato had been barely tested by the Kasasiro.

And Byekwaso recognized Onduparaka’s effort, before adding that it will take grinding out one game at a time for KCCA to reclaim the crown from Vipers.

“You would see the players were giving their all but Onduparaka FC kept making it hard for them,” he said as quoted by the club website.

“The thought of being Champions keeps popping up in their minds but as coaches, we have told them it is a game at a time. They have to fight as they did against Onduparaka and try to grind out games even in the most difficult of situations.”

KCCA is out of all the other competitions and their only hope for silverware this season is the league, and with that in mind, Byekwaso believes it’s even more difficult for his side given the pressure that comes along.

He anticipates a very difficult second round with the other teams also looking to save their season.

“We are going to have a very difficult second round and this we must accept. The fact that we only have the league to fight for even makes it harder. Other teams in the league have strengthened and will want to save their season too.”

KCCA travel to Mwererwe on Saturday, February 9 to take on Bright Stars at the Champions Stadium before returning home to entertain BUL next week.
