However, defender Eugene Ochieng, and midfielder Oscar Injika will wait longer for their debuts after they were ruled out with knee and ankle injuries respectively, as confirmed by Team Doctor John Imboywa.

“Eugene has to see an orthopedic surgeon to ascertain the extent of his knee injury while Injika is also facing the same for his ankle injury. They have been referred to the Defence Forces Memorial Hospital for the checkups and after that we will be able to determine how long they may be out,” he said.

Meanwhile, Omar Boraafya remains sidelined, having been ruled out of the past weekend game with injury.
