KCC FC (Rwanda) Vs KCC FC (Uganda) – 5pm (6pm UG Time)
FSL Champions KCC FC comes into the game well aware that failure to pick maximum points incase Telecom beat Gor Mahia will send them packing.
Nevertheless, the game is viewed as a fight for group B summit with a win for the Lugogo side taking them on top while APR need just a point.
Topping the group at times comes with its rewards of avoiding big guns in the immediate round but coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe says his side is ready for any opponent at any stage.
“Like I said before, all teams in this tournament are good so you have to be ready for whoever comes your way,” Nsimbe told Kawowo Sports after yesterday (Saturday) training session.
“Our target now is reach the knock out stages but to be the best, you have to beat the best,” he emphasized.
Nsimbe is expected to make a few changes in the side that beat Atletico 1-0 in the previous game and the return of defender Ronnie Kisekka may see Ayub Kizza or Richard Kasagga starting on the bench.
William Wadri is also expected to regain his place after coming off the bench against Atletico while Herman Wasswa who never got any action may start upfront.
On the side of APR FC, defender Emery Bayisenge limped off in the 2-2 draw with Gor Mahia FC and is doubtful for the clash.
Ex-Proline FC midfielder Andrew Buteera may start again after missing back to back games. He last featured against Atletico on day one.
A loss for APR FC will see them face home side Rayon Sport in the quarters something midfielder Charles Tibingana is already scared of.
“We are ready for any team in the next round but would wish to avoid Rwanda sides at the moment,” Tibingana told Kawowo Sports.
