Vipers sports club youthful goalkeeper Bashir Sekagya, looks set for a heartbreaking more months out of action following a decision by the medical department at Kitende to let him undergo surgery on a troublesome knee which has failed to heal.

The 21 year old, picked up the injury away in Algeria when the Venoms tussled it out with Club Sportif Constantine in the Total Caf Champions League first round away leg encounter.

His reliable and impressive performances had seen him fill up perfectly well during Fabien Mutombora’s absence when he was nursing his own injury until that setback which has sidelined him for almost 2 months.

Bashir may face a tougher fight for a starting slot on his return to action with Mutombora fully recovered and Derrick Ochan a stable deputy while U19 custodian Mutwalibu Magoloofa also proving his worth in the Junior’s league.

Against Bright Stars FC on Friday in a rescheduled league engagement, Vipers will further be without Geofrey Wasswa who twisted the ankle during training ahead of SC Villa’s fixture and has since remained on the sidelines.

Defenders Bashir Asiku and Livingstone Mulondo have also not been part of the team training for the past four days thus their availability when Bright Stars visit, is not assured.
