Uganda's Obua injured

David Obua had to train alone last evening, doing laps around the pitch behind the rest of players before retiring back to dressing room. But he will have to first prove his fitness to coach Bobby Williamson this morning in the teamís last training ahead of the must-win tie against Kenya at Namboole.

Uganda must beat Kenya tomorrow to end their 34-year absence from Nations Cup. Bobby told Daily Monitor yesterday Obua sat out the morning swimming session. "He had to rest in the morning," said Bobby said after the training watched by hundreds of adoring fans at Namboole. "He will probably train this afternoon.

Weíll see what next and then tomorrow do a fitness test on him." Obua indeed had a slight workout later in the evening, but not joining his mates for the whole session means he is still some way. The Hearts forward twisted a thigh muscle in Wednesday eveningís training and had to leave the field carrying an ice bag in his right hand close to the affected area.

"We need everyone fit for Saturday if they are to give 100 per cent," emphasised Bobby. "Letís wait and see how David responds but as I said, I have a group of talented players who could fill the gaps. So Iím not worried." Obua is Ugandaís leading scorer with two goals this campaign.

He missed the goalless draw in Nairobi through injury and he will hope karma is not doing rounds all over again. In the event he fails to recover in time, Brian Umony, who had a spirited training in both sessions yesterday could have chance to impress. "Iím happy to be back and am seriously concentrating on the game on Saturday," said Umony, who has scored eight times in 11 caps for Uganda.

The former SuperSport United striker showed his resolve ahead of the encounter by doing personal workout earlier in the morning before joining the team. "Everyone has a way they prepare themselves for the game," Umony said.

Refreshingly, left back Nestroy Kizito finally arrived and trained with the team yesterday in both sessions. Meanwhile, Bobby said he would keep an eye on the other group game between Guinea Bissau and Angola
