According to the clubs official Twitter account, Tinkler said that they are feeling good about taking on Uganda Revenue Authority at Orlando Stadium.

"We are feeling good about the game this weekend but we are also aware of the task at hand, it won't be easy,” said Tinkler.

"We don't have much info on URA but we have seen and heard a few things about them that will help us prepare."

Following a mid-week victory over Chippa United in the Absa Premiership, Tinkler says that they are solely focussed on each and every game.

"We are taking this, and every game we play seriously. We want to do well sober play our best available team all the time"

"Our objective here is to win the tournament. The Club has never won it, or played in it. So it's new, but we want it too."

Kick-off is at 17:00.
