Interim head coach Gerald Efit has provided an injury update, ahead of Lugazi FC’s BetPawa Big League clash with Onduparaka FC at the Green Light Stadium in Arua.

Sunday’s trip to the northern part of the country follows last week’s remarkable 2-1 victory over Kiyinda Boys, which was the first since we defeated Calvary last month.

It was a fulfilling afternoon in front of our supporters at the Lugazi Stadium in Najjembe – also the first victory under Efit who took temporary charge of the first team in the days leading up to the game.

Freedom Mungudit scored his second goal of the season after only seven minutes, shortly before January signing Richard Ayiko scored his first goal in the green and gold.

Luckily enough for Efit, none of the players who were involved in the game against Kiyinda are now doubts for our clash with the Caterpillars, who are only five points behind in fifth.

Captain Savio Kabugo is among the major doubts for the game, with the defender who scored a famous equaliser against Mbale Heroes and was on the bench for our trip to Kyetume will miss the trip to Arua.

Kabugo is carrying a deep cut to his sheen, which is expected to rule him out for at least another week before he returns to team training.

Andrew Odongo remains among the long-term absentees, as he continues his rehabilitation after suffering a knee injury that affected his cartilage

Goalkeeper Abraham Opio is the other long-term presence on the Leaders’ injury list, with the shot stopper ruled out for several months with an anterior cruciate ligament.
