Rwenshama Vs Entebbe – Nakivubo Stadium
Ahead of their last fixture of the season, Rwenshama head tactician, Charles ‘Mbuzi’ Ayiekho has already ruled ‘major’ changes ahead of his team’s return leg against Entebbe F.C.
“This is a move done in football world over. We signed 25 players who all have licenses and can play at any time” Ayiekho remarked.
Key figures like Kenneth Tumusiime, Fred Agandu, Farouk Kalinzi, goal keeper Timothy Mbago will be rested for the inconsequential match of the two relegated clubs that will be joined by a third one by the close of business on Tuesday evening.
During the first round fixture played at the same Nakivubo turf, Entebbe won the day 2-1 courtesy of Ali Adam and Hussein Mubiru’s goals before Farouk Kalinzi pulled one back for Rwenshama, who had just sacked coach Shafiki Bisaso at the time.
Between then and now, a lot of water has moved down the drain, with both teams experiencing administrative and managerial hardships.
Entebbe F.C struggled to raise the numbers at training session later on match days in the closing part of the season.
Club ‘senior’ players like Moses Ssekasana had to abandon the team for close to three weeks as he attended to a coaching job with Amus College school at the national secondary school championships in Hoima.
Defender Azizi Mugonza led a section out in protest of nonpayment of dues.
Rwenshama has also had it own tales of problems. The team’s talisman, Gaddaffi Kiwanuka sought greener pastures in Sweden and injuries to influential players dented the team’s great start of the second round.
As the table stands for the team already relegated sides, Entebbe will finish rock bottom regardless of the Tuesday result as they have 15 points and Rwenshama has fetched 19 points with both sides having played 29 games a piece.
