The Manager Morley Byekwaso caught up with this website ahead of #KCCAUPDF;
We need to get back to winning ways. We are playing our first game under floodlights in the league and we have had practice matches under the lights to acclimatize to them. We have played under lights before during CAF games but the league is a whole different thing all together. I think we are ready for night football and the players are fired up and want to get back to winning ways. We worked on our mistakes from the previous game and I have hope that we can hit the ground running again in this game. We welcome our Captain Benjamin Ochan back in the squad and we know his presence will be a boost to the boys. Kizza, Ayella, Wabyoona have all resumed training but this game comes a little too early for them. Obenchan is still ruled out.Morley Byekwaso ahead of #KCCAUPDF
