KCCA Football Club assistant coach Morley Byekwaso has revealed he expects a “very difficult second round” for the club despite defeating Onduparaka FC in the Uganda Premier League.
The Kasasiro defeated Onduparaka 1-0 courtesy of Patrick Kaddu’s second-half penalty on Tuesday at the SatrTimes Stadium in Lugogo.
Not until the penalty was awarded after Allan Kyambadde went down easily, Onduparaka’s goalkeeper Nicholas Sebwato had been barely tested by the Kasasiro.
Byekwaso recognized Onduparaka’s effort, before adding that it will take grinding out one game at a time for KCCA to reclaim the crown from Vipers.
“You would see the players were giving their all but Onduparaka FC kept making it hard for them,” he said as quoted by the club website.
“The thought of being Champions keeps popping up in their minds but as coaches, we have told them it is a game at a time. They have to fight as they did against Onduparaka and try to grind out games even in the most difficult of situations.”
We are going to have a very difficult second round and this we must accept. The fact that we only have the league to fight for even makes it harder. Other teams in the league have strengthened and will want to save their season too.Morley Byekwaso
