Byekwaso Anticipates Tough Encounter At Home To Relegation-Threatened Busoga

KCCA FC interim manager Morely Byekwaso says it will not be easy facing Busoga United on Sunday.

The two sides will clash at the Omondi stadium in Lugogo in one of the two Uganda Premier League games line-up on the day.

KCCA have endured a trying season so far and are on course to finishing in their lowest position for over 10 years.

Speaking ahead of the game, Byekwaso says the team is prepared for the contest.

“We are prepared as usual. Whoever trained before the game was positive and in good condition. Morely Byekwaso told the club media

After an injury crisis of sorts, KCCA FC have recently welcomed back some players from injuries.

However, they suffered other injuries in the draw at UPDF FC on Thursday.

About the team news, Byekwaso confirmed that Sam Ssenyonjo and Sadat Anaku will not be available after they got injured against the Army side before echoing that the game will not be easy.

“We will miss the services of Sam Ssenyonjo and Sadat Anaku who sustained injuries in the one all draw against UPDF but we will fully utilize Charles Lwanga and Julius Poloto to bridge the gap.”

“We come into the match aiming for a win but it won’t be an easy one because it was proven a few days back when Kyetume FC beat URA FC, that these lesser sides cause issues.

“Teams in a state of Busoga United aren’t easy to play because they need to survive and so we have to play well, possess the ball as well being clinical.”

When asked about what’s causing the injuries, Byekwaso said its the fixture congestion and harsh play from opponents.

“The short time for recovery is one of the issues affecting teams because its really hard for them to play three games in a week.

“The harsh play from opponents is also affecting us just like recently against UPDF, the opponents were harsh on us and I think they would have been penalized further but we ended up losing two of our forwards on the day and now we have to juggle around the team.”

KCCA FC beat Busoga United 4-0 in the reverse fixture played at the FUFA Technical centre in Njeru

Busoga also lost 4-0 at home to table leaders Express FC in their last game and need to recover quickly so as to kick-start their bid to survive relegation as they sit just three point above the drop zone.

KCCA FC are currently 4th on the Uganda Premier League table with 42 points from 25 games.
