KCCA FC will welcome back defender Hassan Jurua when they take on Big League side Nyamityobora on Saturday at Kakyeka in this year’s Stanbic Uganda Cup.

Jurua was last year put under Intensive Care Unit (ICU) when he fell sick due to organ failure.

His return is a major boost for Coach Morley Byekwaso who has sacrificed Kato Ramathan to hand Jurua a place.

“Jurua has been training well,” Byekwaso stated. “He is in good conditions and will start the game on Saturday.”

In other changes, Joseph Kizz Bukenya has also stayed back, paving way for Moses Aliro in the squad.

KCCA FC beat Nyamityobora 4-2 in the first leg of the round of 32 thanks to goals from Bright Anukani, Julius Poloto, Sadat Anaku and Sam Ssenyonjo.

Nyamityobora captain Clinton Kamugisha scored a brace at Lugogo to hand the visitors hope.

“Its not over yet, its going to be a difficult affair and the poor state of the pitch will make it hard for us,” Byekwaso added.

“Any team that scores two goals, you have to take them seriously. We will approach the game with caution but we hope to do enough.”

Nyamityobora will be targeting an upset but may have to do it without Johnson Turinawe Bafana who got injured in the league game against Ndejje University FC.

The Abanyakare have been eliminated by URA FC, Proline and BUL FC in the last three editions.

KCCA FC were ousted by Tooro United in an away fixture after shootouts in the round of 32 in the 2019 season.
