Enyimba International (Nigeria) Vs Vipers SC (Uganda) – Port Harcourt @ 4pm (EAT)

Vipers SC Head Coach George ‘Best’ Nsimbe has revealed his 18 man squad for the CAF Champions League duty against Nigeria champions Enyimba International.

The two sides face off in the return leg of the preliminary round in Port Harcourt on Sunday with the Ugandan champions leading 1-0 from the first leg played at Nakivubo less than two weeks ago.

Nsimbe’s travelling squad has no first choice goalie Ismail Watenga, Ibrahim Saddam Juma as well as William Wadri who are all injured.

There is also no place for young striker Alfred Leku who had been tipped to replace Wadri but another youngster in Pius Wanji makes a cut.

Siraje Ssembuya who missed the first leg through injury is also back in the team that travels tonight aboard Ethiopian Airlines flight number 336.

The full contingent of 25 players will be led by Samuel Mpiima as the leader of delegation.

The Venoms need to avoid defeat to make it to the first round. They can also progress with a loss of one goal margin as long as they score.
