Mike Mutebi hopes his team builds on the 3-1 win over Bul when they host an equally improved Bright Stars at Lugogo on Tuesday.
The Kasasiro came from a goal down to beat Kefa Kisala’s side at Kakindu with goals from Paul Mucureezi, Tito Okello and Patrick Kaddu.
“The mood in camp is positive,” said Mutebi. “When you go away and score three goals and your forwards are involved, it’s very pleasing as far as we are concerned,” he added.
We have always had a problem of tapping away the chances we create so on the back of that good result, we hope the confidence in the camp is high and they believe they can do it and defend the championship.
Above all, no team has a better record against Fred Kajoba’s side than KCCA who have won 7 of the last 8 meetings drawing the other.
Kajoba is well aware of the unwanted record but says the team approaches the game differently and warns the opponents against expecting a ride.
“We are more than ready,” said Kajoba. “My players are ready – they trained well yesterday, today and the whole week,” he added.
We want to win (against) KCCA because they have always beaten us home and away so we want that bad record ended. They should expect it tough this time round.
They have a good coach and good players but we shall try to go for a win
KCCA will go top of the log with maximum points with 12 points from 4th while Bright Stars can also move to 10 points with a win.
Nelson Ssenkatuka, formerly at Lugogo will be the man in focus on the day and he has already proved his worth at Matugga with three goals in five games.
Ibrahim Saddam Juma makes his league debut for KCCA after returning from a long injury lay off.
