Vipers Sports Club head coach Javier Martinez Espinoza has named his travelling squad to Algeria to face Algerian side Constatine FC in the first leg of their final qualifying round.
Fomer KCCA midfielder Tom Masiko has made the squad this time round after being left out of the team that played away against El Merriekh in Khartoum but started their last game against Police on Sunday.
Former Zesco United, Rayon Sport and AS Vita striker Davis Kasirye, who was out injured by the time they travelled to Sudan and came on as a second half substitute during the return leg in Kampala has also been included this time.
However, Martinez will miss the services of defender Geofrey Wasswa and club captain Taddeo Lwanga as the pair are out suspended after accumulating yellow cards.
Goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora and left back Aggrey Maddoi also do not make the cut since they are nursing injuries.
Brian Kalumba is the other ommision from the 18-man squad.
The first leg of the qualifier will be played on Friday, December 14 with the return leg scheduled for a week later in at St. Mary’s Stadium in Uganda.
The winner on aggregate over both legs will qualify for the group stages of Africa’s premier club competition, the CAF Champions League while the loser will play in the final qualifying stage for the CAF Confederations Cup.
The 18 players and officials left the country Wednesday evening for Algeria aboard Ethiopian Airways.
