Morley Byekwaso’s charges know that cup football is a strong opportunity for the side to pick silverware this season given that the 13 time league Champions lie 4th on the table with 10 points behind leaders URA FC.

A win against Maroons in the 1st leg of the Uganda Cup puts KCCA FC in a comfortable position ahead of the return leg on Wednesday 5th May 2021.

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

Morley Byekwaso

We face a very good side in Maroons FC. They are at home and play a similar brand of football like ours.

We have a very good home record against them. But that will not count tomorrow when we face them.

We want to maintain the rhythm in the Uganda Cup and keep winning games and see how far we can go
