Following their 5-0 win over MYDA, KCCA makes a short trip to Wakiso Giants targeting a successive victory for the first time since last year.

The 13-time champions had gone four successive games without victory until Saturday and Mike Mutebi believes that win has given his side confidence although he admits it will be a tough game against the Purple Sharks.

“We are facing a side that has not lost a game in the league this season and are playing well,” said Mutebi. “We need to be on top of our game against them if we are to pick maximum points,” he added.

“The game against MYDA gave the lads confidence and we shall pick on from that game and hopefully we use that as a stepping stone.”

Douglas Bamweyana is also confident despite going into the game minus a home win.

“Having played on Saturday, we are trying to balance loading recovery and we feel we have prepared well enough,” he told the club media.

“We are aware of the threats of the opponents but we are looking forward to tomorrow.”
