URA Assessing Lawrence Segawa Injury, Could Miss ACL tie

diagnosis geneva;”>While URA FC is still celebrating its Uganda Cup victory over non-league Azam, the tax-collectors have several injuries and lineup problems to worry about before facing Coton Sport in the African Champions League preliminary round return leg.

Dependable fullback Lawrence Segawa who starred in the 2-3 Uganda Cup win over Azam was Wednesday morning stretchered off with a bleeding jaw after colliding with a Sports Club Victoria University defender while playing in a warm up game at Namboole Stadium Wednesday afternoon that ended in a 2-2 stalemate.

The former Police FC defender could be out for months after a statement from the club website stated a dislocated jaw.

Both key defenders Simon Masaba who missed the first leg and Derrick Walulya sat out training at the beginning of the week with bouts of malaria though skipper Simon Masaba on Wednesday evening declared himself fit again while Lawrence Segawa’s only natural replacement Elasu Quddus is ruled out of Saturday’s match as he has no CAF license.


There are also questions regarding the status of midfielders Osama Farouk (bruise) and Oscar Agaba who also started this week on the sidelines but could probably be up for selection on Saturday.

URA coach Paul Nkata could take away defensive position probably on the flanks by reverting to a three man defense although this could depend on the status of his defensive midfield and the attacking prowess of the West Africans.

The Players in Camp:

Goal Keepers: Allan Owiny, Yasin Mugabi, Brian Bwete

Defenders: Allan Munaaba, Sam Mubiru, Sam Senkoomi, Musa Doka, Joseph Owino

Midfielders: Owen Kasule Augustine Nsumba, Feni Ali, Yayo Lutimba, Said Kyeyune, Oscar Agaba, Farouk Osama.

Attackers: Karim Ndugwa, Erisa Ssekisambu and Ben Ociti
