Mike Mutebi speaking ahead of KCCA FC vs Onduparaka FC
We were motivated by the win we got in the previous game. The players are motivated and i am sure they will play well. Aliro Moses and Gift Ali who have been out and missed the previous game are back and they will make the squad. There is no small club in the league. Every game matters. Yes, we have always had a number over Onduparaka but I demand my players to go there and win beautifully.
