"We have prepared well for them and the team is ready. No, I dont feel we are under pressure, we are relaxed and ready to do our job on the pitch. All that matters are positive results, and it will be really important to ensure we get something from this match," Mbongi told Goal.

"Once we put ourselves under pressure, it means we will be nervous on the pitch and we will commit mistakes."

Ulinzi Stars are the only Kenyan side in continental football after Tusker were eliminated from Caf Champions League.
