KCCA FC will this afternoon face a tough task against visiting Club Africain in their second group B match of the CAF Total Confederations Cup on Tuesday.
After losing the first game 3-0 away to FUS Rabat in Morocco, the Azam Uganda League Champions will have no chance for taking gambles but get back to winning ways if they hope to get back on course.
Mike Hillary Mutebi, the KCCA FC coach told URN Sport on Monday that if they hope to perform well and advance to the quarters, then they should respond positively and pick a win at the Philip Omondi Stadium tomorrow.

Cue out:. Win tomorrow.”//
Speaking about the failure of CAF to register new signing midfield maestro Saddam Ibrahim Juma, the coach said it was unfortunate but added that the players available including youngstar Allan Okello can do the magic.
“We need to forget about the League crowning last Saturday and now concentrate on the mission ahead to defeat the Tunisian side,” he cautioned.
The club will be boasted by the return of first choice goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan and skipper Denis Okot who missed the first group game due to suspension after accumulating two yellow cards.
But the Club African head coach, Chibeb Ellili has also warned that they are in Uganda for serious business. While the Tunisian side are second in the group after their 3-1 win over Rivers United (Nigeria) a week ago, KCCA FC are bottom because they fell 3-0 away to FUS Rabat in Morocco.
KCCA FC will have to keep close watch on the likes of Bilel Ifa and Ossama Darragi who scored in the win over Rivers United. But Geoffrey Sserunkuma who netted 21 goals for KCCA FC in the league is also hungry to open his account in this competition having scored four in the CAF Total Champions League.
