Mike Mutebi  on #KCCAPFC

We want to win this game and progress to the quarter finals

It is unfortunate we will not have some of our players, Achai, Poloto, Kizza and Kato who are away on National Duty but we will have able replacemments from our soccer academy.

We want to display a very beautiful brand of football to the fans despite us playing on unfamiliar grounds.

We are focused on our immediate task which is Doves FC and we can not afford to think about the league now which resumes in May
