Byekwaso praised Dennis Iguma and Jurua Hassan but claimed his strikers were not good enough in front of goal.
“The team that played first half played well, they pressed because we knew Bright Stars were going to be compact as usual,” Byekwaso said.
“But we lacked that effectiveness in finishing and it really cost us the game.”
“For me, Dennis Iguma played well though he lost a few balls.”
“He was doing all the donkey work to serve the offensive players going forward.”
“Jurua Hassan also played his role and although we lost this game, I can’t blame those two.”
“I only blame the forwards who weren’t clinical enough,” Byekwaso added.
Byekwaso urges his charges to be stronger
The tactician said they have to grow strong if they are to end the season at least with a trophy.
“It is a tough result and we are playing Maroons FC next in the Uganda Cup, a team that has always troubled us.”
“If we are to win any trophy this season, we need to change our character because we have players whose character is very weak.”
“The mentality and fighting spirit are really down so, if we are to win anything this season.”
“We need to change the approach and character of some players,” he added.
However, Byekwaso has not lost hope in winning the Premier League title despite the loss.
“The league is a marathon.”
“We’ve lost against Bright Stars and if the others also lose.”
“We still have that confidence to come back and win it because we still have many games to play.”
“If we changed our character and approach, I believe we shall still make it,” Byekwaso concluded.
KCCA FC remained 4th on the log with 37 points.
