Last year?s semi-finalists have to improve in all departments, especially the striking line, if they are to make a difference in this year?s campaign because they are yet to score a single goal.

Coaches Mike Mutebi and Sam Ssimbwa have been prompted to change the team?s formation to accommodate two strikers, with Derrick Nsimbambi, who played as alone striker against Azam FC, combining with Shaban Kondo in the hunt for goals.

Ssimbwa took the players through drills in the last training at the artificial turf in Karume, emphasizing accuracy in everything.

?We have to win tomorrow?s game. Everyone knows what it means and we are ready,? said Ssimbwa on Tuesday.

?We need to be accurate in everything and score an early goal as that will encourage the boys to play their game. But we are not under pressure, the team will win.?

However, KCCA FC will have to be conscious with their two-man attack line and defend well against the Ethiopians who are good with the ball and pass it at a high tempo.

The Uganda representatives will also have to watch out on several players in Adama City?s midfield captained by Suleman Mohamed and Takele Elemayehu, who dictated the pace in their 2-1 loss to Malakia.
