Manager Morley Byekwaso believes KCCA has the ammunition to fight for maximum results at home.

“We need to go all out against Gaddafi and pick three points. We want to keep the momentum going after picking three points in the opening game. I liked the aggression and the fact that we scored three goals away in the opening game. I would like to see the players possess the ball and be confident while playing” Byekwaso revealed.
