Despite the record, KCCA assistant manager Morley Byekwaso does not take this game an easy one.
While speaking in the pre match conference, he said;
” We need to put in a lot of effort to see that we win this game. Onduparaka is not an easy side, they have good players like Kagaba(Nicholas), Viane(Ssekajugo), Okhuti(Ceasar), so it’s not a sure win”.
