Cape Town - Ugandan side Kampala City Council Authority say they will give reigning CAF Champions League winners Mamelodi Sundowns a run for their money on Friday evening.

Mike Mutebi's side travel to the Lucas Moripe Stadium for their first-leg clash against Masandawana and the KCCA coach revealed that they are going into the encounter with the intention of garnering a victory.

"We are also champions in Uganda and we shall make sure we get a good result in Pretoria," he told CAF's official website.

"We know Sundowns have the experience because they have played several matches on the continent. But they should not underrate us because we have what it takes to get a good result."

Kampala captain Dennis Okot echoed Mutebi's sentiments and is confident that the team can do the job away from home.

"We are going to prove a point that KCCA is a strong team that deserves respect," Okot said.

"I like the fact that we shall play an African champion because this means there is a lot at stake."

Kick off is at 19:00.
