KCCA Captain Dennis Okot has called for a balanced approached from his fellow players ahead of tomorrow's CAF Confederation Cup game with Nigeria’s Rivers United in Port Harcourt.

Okot’s remarks come shortly after KCCA landed in Port Harcourt on Sunday.

“Much as we want to score goals, it’s key for us to keep a clean sheet. I know it will be hard but we must try as a team to frustrate the attacks of Rivers United. We need to play for a result, a draw would be good enough for us but if a win comes our way then we will celebrate it and build on that,” Okot stated .

"We must find the back of the net, we can create chances for our strikers to score goals. A goal can turn things around for us.”

KCCA who have just been crowned the Uganda Cup champions are in group A alongside FUS Rabat (Morocco), Club Africain (Tunisia) and Rivers United (Nigeria). They are joint top with Club Africain onsix points from three matches but the Tunisan side has a better goal difference.

The top two teams at the end of the group stages qualify for the quarterfinal.

KCCA beat  Rivers United 2-1 in the first leg hosted in Kampala two weeks ago.

KCCA FC players in  Nigeria: Benjamin Ochan, Denis Okot, Timothy Awany, Paul Musamali, Bukenya Lawrence, Isaac Muleme, Vincent Kayizzi, Muzamir Mutyaba, Tom Masiko, Derrick Nsibambi, Geoffrey Sserunkuuma, Douglas Kisembo (GK), Habib Kavuma, Denis Rukundo, Paul Mucureezi, Ivan Ntege, Allan Okello, Julius Poloto
