KCCA FC head coach Morley Byekwaso says that playing under hot conditions at Njeru hindered their game plan against SC Villa on Saturday.
KCCA were held to a 1-1 by SC Villa in a league game at the FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru.
Speaking after the final whistle, Byekwaso was quick to admit that the conditions on the day were unfavourable given the intensity of the game.
“We were playing under too much sunshine, there is heat down on the turf and up, so it’s very hard to play an intensive game when heat is too much,” Byekwaso, who KCCA FC side also hosts at an artificial turf (Lugogo) stated.
“We wanted to manage the game, we possessed the game so we’ll, we reached every corner but we were not so effective in the final third.”
KCCA FC were on course for maximum points when they went into the lead through Rogers Mato in the 70th minute before Villa got a late equaliser.
Benson Muhindo scored from the spot to salvage a point for the Jogoos.
When asked about the late goal conceded, Byekwaso stated that they will keep improving and correcting such errors in time to come.
“It is really not so good, but we shall correct such errors in the future. We can not blame players so much, they have done so much, they are willing to be positive, play well for the club but every game as I mentioned earlier on has its weights, This is a derby,” he added.
The result saw KCCA remain on top and moved to 27 points, four behind second placed Vipers who won their game on Saturday against Tooro to close the gap.
Up next for KCCA FC will be a home game against defending Champions Express on Wednesday.
