Covid19: Halid Lwaliwa, Five Others Out of Al-Hilal Return Leg

Vipers SC will travel to Al-Hilal without six players including captain Halid Lwaliwa, The-SportsNation sources have been told.

News coming from Kitende have it that six players have tested positive for Covid19 ahead of their CAF Champions League return leg.

Karim Watambala, Milton Kariisa, Geoffrey Wasswa, Abraham Ndugwa and Livingston Mulondo are the other players who are expected to self quarantine.

The Venoms are expected to fly out on Thursday to Khartoum ahead of the encounter on December 6.

Vipers trail 1-0 after falling to Bakhet Hamid’s 26th-munute at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

The absence of six players, is a big blow for coach Fred Kajoba who takes a depleted squad in Sudan seeking to overturn the deficit.

In addition, the club will also miss left back Aziz Kayondo and midfielder Bobosi Byaruhanga who are in Arusha after winning the CECAFA U20 Championship.

Allan Kayiwa is reportedly out injured while the match may come sooner for striker Shaban Mohamad.

If the shorthanded Venoms overturn the score, will face winner between Ghana’s Asante Kotoko and Mauritania’s Nouadhibou at the next round.
