Having lost their first big game since taking charge of KCCA FC, head coach Mike Mutebi and his assistant Sam Ssimbwa are plotting a win against Ethiopia’s Adam City when the two sides meet in the CECAFA Kagame club championship tomorrow. KCCA lost to Azam fc by 1-0 to leave them pointless after their first game of group C.
Now their chances of qualifying for the last eight at the tournament highly depend on tomorrow’s clash against Adam City in ‘a must win for the Kasasiro Boys’ with changes expected in the team.
“Expect a changed side from the one that narrowly lost 1-0 to Azam FC on Sunday. We are going for 4-4-2 formation with two strikers instead of the 4-3-3 we used against the Tanzanian team and I promise you the goals will rain in,” Ssimbwa told KCCA website.
Despite the loss on Sunday, the team remains optimistic with midfield general, Hakim Ssenkumba saying that they can still make it out of the group stages and even win the CECAFA trophy that has eluded them since 1978.
“I have been in this situation before and I have managed to go through it unscratched. If we did it in the Mapinduzi cup group stages and CECAFA in Rwanda last year, why not now when we have such a comprehensive side?” Ssenkumba revealed to the club’s website.
