Uganda’s representatives in the CAF Champions League, KCCA FC, have vowed to get a good result away to Zambia’s Nkana Red Devils.
Head coach George Nsimbe told MTNFootball.com before the team left aboard an Ethiopian Airlines flight this morning that the Zambian side should not expect to be comfortable in Kitwe.
“We are going to make life so hard for them and win the game in front of their fans,” said the former Cranes midfielder.
After helping KCCA FC beat El Merreikh 2-0 away in Khartoum, Sudan, in the preliminary round, Nsimbe thinks he has the formula to produce magic in Kiwte on Saturday when the two sides face-off.
“I know the Zambian style of play and they should watch out. We are going to Zambia to win,” said Nsimbe.
Nsimbe’s team had a good rehearsal last week with an 8-1 thrashing of CRO FC in the FUFA Super League before another 3-0 victory over Kamwokya United in the knockout Uganda Cup last weekend.
In-form Tony Odur, who netted a goal in each of the legs in the preliminary round, together with Herman Wasswa, Tom Masiko and Brian Majwega, are expected to lead the Ugandan champions.
