CAF CL: Vipers names 18-man squad to face TP Mazembe

Vipers SC head coach Roberto Oliviera Robertinho has selected a 18-man squad to travel to DR Congo for their CAF Champions League return leg game against TP Mazembe on Saturday.

The Venoms departed Entebbe International Airport in the wee hours of Thursday morning aboard Kenya Airways.

Bright Anukani is back after sitting out Sunday’s stalemate at home against TP Mazembe with a groin injury but Ibrahim Orit remains unavailable as he started his rehabilitation process after suffering a dislocated shoulder.

Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye misses out after contracting malaria while Najib Yiga is out as he starts his Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) exams on Monday next week.
