In a post match interview, coach Kiwanuka also lauded his players’ efforts for a second consecutive victory.
“I expected the win because we have had good preparations since December 2nd 2019. I thank the players who gave their all for the win,” Kiwanuka said.
“Its not a surprise that we won the game against a good team like KCCA FC. It all goes back to the preparations and belief.
“There is a debt from everyone at the club because we all know where the team is now and this gives us more courage to work even harder because its us to pay it all.”

Bright Stars have won two straight games from as many in the second round including a 1-0 win against BUL, all at Kavumba.
“Our aim is to collect many points in the next games so we can look more better,” he added.
Kiwanuka replaced coach Mohammed Kisekka who had left the club languishing in the red zone following an abysmal start.
Bright Stars have temporarily jumped out of the drop zone with 16 points, and seat 12th on the 16-team log.
