Calvary FC v Arua Hill SC: Team News, Mugalu, Okhuti

With three games left to complete the season, Hussein Mbalangu must be glad his Leopards side lead the table with 23 as they head to Greenlight Stadium three points clear at the top of Elgon and knowing victory could draw them closer to qualification dreams.

Mbalangu will without doubt rotate the squad given the return of Caesar Okhuti from groin harm and the confirmed absence of Allan Mugalu meanwhile Calvary care taker Bosco Dudu may have to think deep tactically in order to not only curb the Leopards but also change the picture after the Yumbe side lost the reverse fixture 1-0 last April.

Calvary slipped to defeat at Maroons earlier in the week and with four wins in 11 are fighting to ensure survival even amidst relegation peeping as they sit a point above the zone.

In the pre-match talk, Arua Hill gaffer says the contest will be tough

“It’s going to be a tough game because we are fighting to maintain the lead, to be on top of the table. They are fighting to resist relegation so that will be a very difficult game on both sides.

“As you saw, the last game, we won 1-0, it was a hard game, although we were from Mbale because we travelled and players were fatigued hence didn’t play well although we won.

“But I know tomorrow we shall put on a good game because the boys are okay, we’ve rested enough, meanwhile they have fatigue from Kampala, played on Wednesday, travelled came yesterday, I think that comes with a challenge too.

Mbalangu has reported no threatening injury apart from Oscar Agaba who has been out since March 27th, and Allan Mugalu who is sick for malaria, typhoid and ordinary flu.

Skipper Caesar Okhuti will return to Arua Hill squad to face Calvary in the Big League on Sunday.

Arua Hill gaffer says Okhuti has not experienced the excruciating pain resulting from groin damage and he passed the test during a practice match last Thursday and hopes his return will contribute greatly to the team in the remaining fixtures.
