Uganda: High Stakes As Observer Take On Blue Cube

Six matches without a win is such a poor spell that Observer Blues coach Frank Kisakye is ready to throw in the towel with a draw or loss to Blue Cube, writes Moses Mugalu.

The match, which could also determine the fate of misfiring striker Felix Eupal as well as the erratic Emmanuel Mutaizibwa, takes place at Villa Park this afternoon. Already, Kisakye has decided to do a 'Di Matteo' by dropping central defender Siraje Lubwama and instead replaced him with the untested Samson Baranga.

"It's my last throw of the dice," says Kisakye, whose assistant Charles Sebugwawo is tipped to take over. "I'm going for broke and I will be responsible if we fail to beat Blue Cube."

James Tumusiime also makes a rare return to the first team on the left side of the midfield while Edward Echwalu is set to pave way for the stocky Edward Ssekika at right back. The match kicks off at 4pm and will be handled by retired Fifa referee Catherine Adipo.
