The Head Coach, Abdallah Mubiru, caught up with this website ahead of #EXPKCCA and said,

Abdallah Mubiru

We go into a game that means more than just winning three points. We have prepared our players mentally and physically ahead of this game. We have tried to work on our shortcomings in the previous game especially in the final third. Everyone is ready to give their best in the derby. I am grateful to the fans for being that 12th player in the previous game. They supported the boys from the first minute until the last but unfortunately we could not give them the win. But we go again tomorrow in the derby and hopefully we win.
