Ahead of KCCA’s visit to Champions stadium, Mwererwe for the tie against The Saints, assistant coach Morley Byekwaso says psychology will play a big role in determining the winner.

The Kasasiro go into the game on the back of a 7-0 thrashing of Onduparaka while The Saints lost their previous match 2-0 away to Kirinya Jinja SS.

“In football, psychology plays a big role,” said Byekwaso. “At the moment, we are high on confidence as compared to the opponents and with that attitude, it will be difficult to lose,” he added.

The army side shifted their home base from Bombo Barracks to Matugga in the second round but Byekwaso, formerly at the club says it won’t be neutral a venue.

“The Saints train at the venue and that means we shall be the visitors by all means despite their relocation. But good enough, they are low on confidence as compared to last season when they beat us.”

Eleventh on the log with 20 points, Moses Basena’s side goes into the game fully aware that defeat increases their chances of going down.

They will look to defenders Denis Sekitoleko and company to stop the attacking trio of Robert Ssentongo, Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Derrick Nsibambi who have scored over 20 goals in the league.

Going forward, Julius Malingumu who has been their main source of goals in the second round will be the key player tasked to unlock the KCCA defence that has so far kept two cleans in as many second round games.

A win for Mike Mutebi’s side will re-open the gap at the top of the log to four points with the tally increased to 41.
