URA stars to miss KCC tie



URA could negotiate their big Bell Super League tie away to KCC on Tuesday without a number of their senior stars.

Alex Isabirye’s side travel to Lugogo Stadium looking to move one point clear of leaders Express to 45 if they win.

But they will have to make do with four of their regular starters ruled out and the same number only rated at 50-50.

Isabirye confirmed to SuperSport.com that skipper Manco Kaweesa (knee), goalkeeper Allan Owiny (cut) striker Benson Ociti (malaria) and midfielder Oscar Agaba can only make the bench.

“They will not start,” said Isabirye, adding, “They did train today but can only make the bench. Manco and Owiny picked the injuries in the Uganda Cup game in Masaka while Agaba and Ociti are just returning from lay-offs.”

While the aforementioned will make the bench, defenders Allan Munaaba (chest) and Simeon Masaba (knock) plus wingers Sula Bagala (knee) and Vincent Kayizzi (bruised toe) are all ruled out.

“We can make a team for the game but the missing players are very important in our bid to defend the title. But we shall work with those available,” added Isabirye.

Meanwhile, KCC’s Morley Byekwaso welcomes utility player Joseph Ochaya from the under 20 engagements.

The city lads lie sixth on 34 points and victory over the tax collectors will see them go fifth. The first round encounter between these two sides was won by URA 2-1.
