When KCCA FC takes to the field of the play at the Yakubu Gowon stadium in Port Harcourt against Nigeria’s Rivers United, there will be two unfamiliar faces in the starting line up for the reigning Uganda Premier League champions.

Goalkeeper Douglas Kisembo who last started in the way tie to FUS Rabat starts ahead of the number Benjamin Ochan.

Julius Poloto makes his maiden start on the continent.

The rest of the team are the usual suspects with team captain Denis Okot and Isaac Muleme at the right and left back roles.

Timoth Awany and Habib Kavuma will take on the central defensive roles.

It is a fully packed midfield department of Tom Masiko, Poloto, Muzamiru Mutyaba and Allan Okello.

Veteran center forward Geofrey Sserunkuma and Derrick Nsibambo lead the line in the quest for the crucial away goals and final result.
