“This is just another game of the league and first we handle each game the way we should,” Lukyamuzi told the club media.

“Kitara is a top club, was in the Premier League before been in the Big league for a long time so we are going to do what we should be doing.

“For us we prepare to win each game and we are prepared to win again.

“I am not God, but I call upon the fans to come and watch, Kitara plays good game and we also play a good game so it’s going to be a very beautiful encounter.”
