The Head Coach, Abdallah Mubiru, caught up with this website ahead of #WGFCKCCA and said,
We have registered improvement in our performance. We are not in the position in which we want to be but we know there is still room for more improvement. We play a team that is tricky and has got good players. They use the ball well and create a number of chances in games. On a good day they can make any team look so bad. We have prepared for that challenge and we are ready for the game. We will miss Lukwago, Emilson and Ayella. However, Shaban and Loki resumed training.Abdallah Mubiru
