Mbarara City FC will have Ibrahim Orit back when they face Kyetume FC in the league at the Mighty Arena in Jinja.
Orit’s return is a major boost as he adds pace and creativity to the club’s scoring department.
He will partner the likes of Ivan Eyam, Jude Ssemugabi, Brian Aheebwa among others in the attacking line.
Mbarara will however continue to miss captain Hillary Mukundane who broke his nose but Bamba Souleymane is available for selection.
Jasper Aheebwa is on compassionate leave despite being on bench against FHL in the Uganda cup where they recorded a 9-0 win at Kakyeka. Raymond Onyai scored a hat-trick in the game.
Mbarara target a league double over the Slaughters who they beat 2-0 in the reverse fixture with Dennis Lubowa (own goal) and Orit on target.
Brian Ssenyondo’s team is unbeaten in their last three league games since a 1-0 loss to Busoga United. They have beaten Express and Police FC.
Kyetume drew 1-1 with URA in their last league game and will hoping for maximum points if they are to improve their survival chances.
The Ankole Lions are eighth with 29 points while Kyetume who have 23 points, sit a place above the drop zone.
