Ndejje University has been affected by Rule 22 (e) of the Nile Special University Football League barring Super League and Big League players from participating in the competition.
Ndejje, who have a team in the Big League, will be without several key players as they take on Kyambogo University today at the latter’s grounds.
“Unfortunately we shall be without key players like Luwaga Yunus, Katende Andrew, Matovu Samuel, Lony Dennis and Nsubuga Johnson who are playing in our Big League team,” said Ndejje University coach, Raymond Komakech.
Komakech was, however, confident that his team would put up a good show against Kyambogo.
“It’s going to be a tough game but the boys are prepared. They have been training together with the Big League team and I am sure they have picked up a thing or two.”
“Kyambogo will have the edge because they are at home but my team is good and I know that we shall come away with a result,” Komakech added.
Meanwhile, Kyambogo University are relishing their home aantage against Ndejje as they look to go top of Group B with a win. Coach Deo Sserwadda’s side has been boosted by the return of key strikers Francis Jemba and Herbert Galiwango who he said were sorely missed during the Nkumba game last week.
“We are taking the game very seriously because we are at home and have to perform. Good enough Jemba and Galiwango who were not available against Nkumba are back and with them on the team, I expect to win,” Sserwadda said.
