Feni Set For URA vs Orlando Pirates


Orlando Pirates defeated Uganda Revenue Authority 2-1 in the first leg of their Confederation Cup first round tie last month and will be confident of at least defending their advantage in the return match today afternoon. Tanzanian based Azam TV has been given rights to broadcast the game live.

And URA forward Ali Feni says his teammates must enjoy their few hours of relaxation because later this evening they enter a crucial phase when they need to find their best form again.

They have it all to do home at Namboole when they need to overturn a one-goal deficit but without banned striker Robert Ssentongo, drugs scorer of three goals in the preliminary-round victory over Malagasy side Saint Michel.

And defender Dan Othieno (knee), midfielder Oscar Agaba (hamstring) striker Peter Lwasa (back) and midfielder Oscar Agaba (hamstring) are all ruled out.

“The boys are doing fine for now. It is a small break that we are taking to reflect on what has happened since coming back from South Africa and now we have to beat them and progress to the next level.

“The results have not been satisfying but we cannot look over our shoulders, it is now in the past. Things should pick up when we get back to the field today.

“We are a goal down but there is a good chance that we can turn things around. There is hope.

Feni asserts that now is “the time when senior players like me should be raising their hands and showing leadership to encourage others. It will be a tough journey but we are ready for it. We will make sure we put on a good show for our fans.”

Brian Bwete (gk), Simeon Masaba (c), Allan Munaaba, Jonathan Mugabi, Samuel Senkoomi, Yasser Mugerwa, Saidi Kyeyune, Moses Ali Feni, Dickson Kigongo, James Kasibante, Patrick Ochan
