Mamelodi Sundowns first choice goalkeeper Denis Onyango has said he could be fit to feature in the return leg against KCCA FC in Kampala on Saturday.
The African footballer of the year (Africa based) told Africanfootball.com that since he has been out injured for two weeks, he feels much better and could be available in the return leg of the CAF Total Champions League clash.
The reigning defending champions managed a 2-1 win over the Ugandan League champions last week in Pretoria, but they could face a tough test in the return leg at the artificial turf of the Philip Omondi Stadium.
“It would be nice to play against a Ugandan club. I want to continue winning title with Sundowns,” added Onyango who also featured in two games for the Uganda Cranes at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.
Mamelodi Sundowns who settled for a goalless draw against Polokwane City in a Absa Premiership on Tuesday night are expected to arrived in Uganda on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, KCCA FC coach Mike Mutebi has urged his team to work hard ahead of the game.
“We need to make use of our home advantage. Yes we shall be facing defending champions, but we also have our chance at home,” added Mutebi.
Striker Geoffrey Sserunkuma, who scored the lone goal in South Africa last week, said he is hungry to keep scoring more goals for the club. The striker is also the Azam Uganda Premier League leading marksman with 12 goals.
