KCCA FC’s Byekwaso laments misfortune, missed chances over dropped points

KCCA FC dropped two points by a similar scoreline in a third successive Uganda Premier League game.

Following one-all draws with Maroons FC and Blacks Power FC, the Kasasiro Boys returned with the same result against UPDF FC on Sunday at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.

Head Coach Morley Byekwaso has attached the recent indifference in terms of scoreline and results to bad luck, mishaps, and failure to bury the many chances the team creates.

Bad luck

“The team played well, especially the second half, but we didn’t have luck otherwise we should have won the game,” a visibly frustrated Byekwaso said to the media after the UPDF misery.

The KCCA fans called for Byekwaso’s head with protests throughout the entire 90.

They sat mute and wore black t-shirts with ‘Morley Out’ loud in white.

But, the gaffer feels it’s not just him but the players too, as he feels they have to execute their respective roles if fortunes are to be turned.

Players taking responsibility

“I don’t know why players miss chances because they are created in numbers,” baffled and dejected, Byekwaso notes before adding:

“But, the lack of concentration and effectiveness does not go to the coach, it’s for the player as an individual.”

“The player has to know what’s needed in such a situation, to take away the chances so that the team doesn’t play with pressure.”

Not all is lost

Despite the results, KCCA remains second with 39 points, four adrift of summit leaders SC Villa who have played two games more.

It awaits to be seen if the Lugogo side will turn events around as they play bogey-side Soltilo Bright Stars FC in their next match in the Uganda Cup on Sunday.

In the league, they will be guests at the Mehta Stadium, Lugazi on April 19 against hosts URA FC, who look like a rejuvenated side.
