Byekwaso Still Optimistic About KCCA’s Title Chances

KCCA FC interim coach Morley Byekwaso says he is still optimistic about his side winning the Uganda Premier League (UPL) title this season.

He made those remarks after KCCA’s 2-0 victory over Kyetume FC on Sunday in Lugogo.

Victory ensured the Kasasiro Boys move to fourth place with 41 points.

Speaking to the press after the game, Byekwaso was quick to note that the game had gone well despite the concerns surrounding several missed chances.

“It has gone well and we have won but that wasn’t the peak which I was waiting for. He said.

“We create a lot of chances but don’t put them away hence creating problems for our confidence.

“I think today, God helped us we created many chances and scored two on the day.”

Despite winning on the day, Byekwaso’s side are still 13 points below leaders URA FC.

With just six games to go, Byekwaso is still hopeful his side can challenge for the title.

“If we keep on winning, football is a funny game no one is sure that others won’t loose.

“So we have to win the remaining games and see what happens.”

Byekwaso has had a shaky start ever since taking over as interim manager following the departure of Mike Mutebi.

The win against Kyetume was the first in four games but he is optimistic things will work out eventually.

“At times it doesn’t work out since we miss a lot of chances hence creating pressure on our selves.”

“The most important thing which i want my team to do is to play good-attacking football, pressing high because these are the things that are practiced on the international level.

“If we happen to be there, I think our team won’t lack anything so that’s why you see we keep on pressing high, we want them to get used to that since that’s the modern trend of the game.”

With the league nearing it’s climax, KCCA might end the season without a league trophy for the second successive campaign.

To turn things around, KCCA need to keep winning their remaining games and pray that the top three sides lose five of their remaining six games.

Next up for KCCA is a trip to Bombo to face UPDF FC on Wednesday.
