KCCA manager Mike Mutebi and his captain Denis Okot as well as midfielder Isaac Kirabira have vowed to make amends against Onduparaka.

The champions host the Caterpillars at Lugogo on Tuesday after failing to win their two games in as many in the new season following draws at home to Maroons and away to UPDF FC.

“We expect to play well this time and win,” Mutebi told the press. “It’s important we win tomorrow (Tuesday) so that we can put our house in order,” he added.

We have lost four points on the road; we need to remedy the situation by winning tomorrow.

Kirabira says they have to be more ruthless and stop throwing away points.

“We must get ourselves out this situation and find our feet again,” he added. “We are supposed to be getting results and not giving away points and be a little ruthless,” he added.

Okot feels game against Onduparaka, a side they beat 7-0 at the same venue last season is the perfect match to show response.

We can’t afford to slip up on Tuesday. Not even a point will be good enough so we can’t afford to lose any points.

Onduparaka who won just twice on the road last season come into the game on the back of a morale boosting win over Maroons in Luzira and Leo Adraa hopes to build on that.

“Last season, our form on the road was questionable,” he told the media. “But we want a change to this and the boys are fully aware of what awaits them,” he added.

Muhammad Shaban question

Former Onduparaka skipper Muhammad Shaban is unhappy at the club and has been heavily linked with a move to KCCA before the window closes.

Mutebi has dismissed reports that the player has joined the Lugogo outfit although he admitted a move is in the pipeline.

He isn’t expected to feature for either side just like he missed the corresponding fixture last season.

Derrick Nsibambi and new striking partner Patrick Kaddu will lead the hunt for goals for the side now placed 8th on the 15-team log while Ceaser Okhuti, former centre forward at Lugogo has a chance to slaughter his former bosses.
