Wednesday 26th May, 2021. | 3:30pm

Muteesa II Stadium, Wankulukuku

KCCA FC visit Express FC in the Stanbic Uganda Cup at Muteesa II Stadium Wankuluku.

KCCA FC will be hoping they can continue their 100 percent winning record in this year’s edition of the Uganda Cup.

Both clubs shared spoils in a one all draw in the first round of the league this term.

Morley Byekwaso’s charges know that a win against Express away in the cup puts KCCA FC in a clear opportunity to head into the second leg with an advantage.

www.kccafc.co.ug caught up with the Manager Morley Byekwaso and he had this to say;

Morley Byekwaso

We are set for the quarter finals against Express FC.

We are tied on 10 cups with them. One of us can progress to the semifinals and we want to be that team to progress.

It is unfortunate Sadat Anaku and Samuel Ssenyonjo will miss the game due to injuries picked up against UPDF. We hope they can be ready for the return leg game next week.

The rest of the available players are fine and are ready to compete.
