Thirteen-time league champions KCCA FC played out an entertaining one-all draw with URA FC on Saturday at the MTN Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.

Either side had a fair share of goalscoring opportunities in both halves, but KCCA’s head coach Morley Byekwaso believes his side had the better of the lot.

The hosts’ gaffer was thus left frustrated his side didn’t convert them, for what would have been an important three points.

“We were the best team for larger spells in the game and it is disappointing that we have not won,” Byekwaso told the media after the game.

“The team created enough chances which should have enabled us to win the game but we weren’t clinical in front of the goal.”

“But, every day you learn a thing or two and I know how much the low conversion rate is affecting our performance but we shall keep on improving,” he added.

Derrick Nsibambi gave the guests the lead four minutes after the hour-mark before Julius Poloto levelled five minutes later.

Byekwaso was also forced to justify Brian Aheebwa’s selection upfront, at the expense of Congolese Tshisungu Simon Kankonde.

“Kankonde has been a starter in all the previous six games but has not been able to deliver yet, and Aheebwa is one of his competitors and was fantastic throughout training last week. We therefore, decided to give him a chance.”

KCCA are now placed sixth on the log with 13 points after seven matches and will visit bitter-rivals SC Villa on Friday, November 25th in their next outing.

On the other hand, the Tax Collectors are positioned eighth with 10 points after eight games and will host Vipers a day later.
