Tooro United will be without two key players when they travel to face Kansai Plascon at Bishop SS in the Stanbic Uganda Cup round of 32.

Yafeesi Mubiru and Will Kavuma are the sick players and will be a huge blow for a club that is trying to balance a good cup run in and a surviving relegation in the league.

However, goalkeeper Michael Nantamu and Charles Musiige are back from injury layoffs.

”We are not in bad shape,” said a confident Tooro United Coach Mohammed Kisekka. “We have improved by each passing game and we hope for a win.”

At round of 64, Tooro managed to overcome Star Light 3-2 to reach this stage and a recent victory against Wakiso Giants in the league will be the source of motivation.

Last season. Tooro were eliminated by Wakiso Giants 4-2 in shootouts at Bugembe at round of 16 despite knocking out KCCA FC at an earlier stage.
