KCCA FC interim manager Morely Byekwaso was left a happy after his team beat Busoga United 3-1 on Sunday.
Forwards Juma Balinya, Charles Lwanga and Gift Ali were all on target for the hosts.
Speaking after the game, Byekwaso noted that it was the first time KCCA have played with intensity for 85 minutes in the game despite playing without three-key first team players.
“This is the first game we’ve played with intensity from the first half to the 85th minute. Byekwaso told the press.
“I have been expecting this in previous games but it wasn’t coming. Thank God its coming out now and hopefully in the future.
“I’m impressed because we managed to win this game without the trio of Sam Ssenyonjo, Sadat Anaku and Julius Poloto.
“It played on our minds as technical team but we stuck onto what we wanted and these boys have really played well.”
Since joining KCCA FC from rival Vipers, Andrew Kawooya was handed his debut on Sunday, coming on for Gift Ali in the 87th minutes and Byekwaso says they have nothing to lose and will continue giving playing time to players who haven’t been featuring regularly.
“We have nothing much to lose now so we will try give playing time to players who haven’t been playing so they can give us decisions to make.
“You can see they are now trying to lift their confidence and performances.
Throughout the game, KCCA were dominant at their yard and less dominant and Byekwaso says its a trend they are trying to adopt.
“Dominating for huge spells is a trend we are trying to adopt.
“Sometimes its a trend but you need talent to execute.
“We are trying as much as possible to adopt because in the modern game, you need to build from the back so as to assert your dominance.
The win means KCCA are still 4th on the Uganda Premier League table with 45 points from 25 games.
