Buddu head coach Simon Peter Mugerwa believes that these two players will give him options.

“We lost in the previous match away to Buweekula in Mubende. Now the focus is to concentrate and win before our home fans. We have Joel (Sserunjogi) and Allan (Oforywoth) available. This gives us options in offence,” Mugerwa revealed.
