KCCA FC coach Morley Byekwaso lauded his players after they picked a rare win against URA FC.
KCCA FC appeared the second best but managed to squeeze out a 1-0 win in a league game at Lugogo on Wednesday.
New signing Patrick Kaddu scored on his second home debut, with the forward heading home in the second minute of the game.
But despite a dream start, the hosts were made to work in a game many thought URA FC deserved to walk away with at least a point.
“We had the luck of winning though they dominated possession of the game,” said Byekwaso.
“Every game has its own dynamics. We were the better side in the first leg but lost.”
He went on to praise the character and commitment of his players.
“I thank my players for the commitment and display they have put out, their character was good as we picked up a win though it wasn’t our day in terms of possession. A win matters at the end of the day.”
“We are going to return to the boardroom and see that we can perfect this kind of play so as to achieve our targets.”
The win significantly meant that KCCA FC broke the URA FC jinx – This was their first win against the Tax collectors since 2019, a 1-0 away win at the Mandela National stadium in Namboole.
KCCA FC currently sit second on the UPL table with 34 points from 16 games, and just a point below log leaders Vipers on 35. They will turn focus on to their away game against Mbarara city in kakyeeka stadium.
