KCCA FC interim coach Morley Byekwaso says Mbarara City is a very serious team at Kakyeka Stadium and a point off them is welcome.
Byekwaso who guided the U20 national team to the AFCON final, this year, made those remarks after KCCA were held to a goalless draw against the Ankole Lions on Wednesday.
Speaking after the game Byekwaso was quick to admit that it was not an easy game and appreciated his players who put in a lot of energy.
“It has been a tough game, Mbarara City is a very serious team. It is full of senior players and they have been in football for almost 9 or 10 years, so it’s very hard to win such a team, they have experienced coach. Said Byekwaso.
“They have been very tactical and energy wise, their levels have been up, so we think the team is stronger than any opposition that comes to their home.
“In today’s game I don’t blame the strikers very much because sometimes it’s really hard to score when you are under pressure. We didn’t get obvious chances but we shall create some training drills which will help them to stabilize in such situations.”
KCCA saw Julius Poloto get injured in the game, something that Byekwaso says affected the game plan.
“It really disturbed our mind-set, it disorganized our game plan because he is our key player but as we said earlier on, we have players who could help him, like his replacement came in and gave is a lot because this game needed a lot of energy.”
KCCA sits 4th on the log with 34 points level with Police FC but the kasasiro boys have a superior goal difference.
In their next fixture KCCA will travel away to Arua to face Onduparaka at the Greenlight Stadium on Sunday.
