We are geared up for the game and we are ready for the derby. We have emphasized it to the players this week that the remaining games will need more focus than before. We have prepared them mentally because such games require one to be switched on all the time. Kizza, Majwega and Ayella returned to full training this week but remain a doubt for the derby. We will assess them and see if they will be able to feature in the derby.Charles Ssenyange Nsanziro – Assistant Coach KCCA FC
