Former professional defender and Cranes left-back Nestory Kizito is expected to lead Sports Club Victoria University this afternoon in Lugazi when they face giants Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) in one of the games in the FUFA Super League.

Kizito who quit the national team last year after the Cranes failed to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations returned this year to local football and is expected to make his debut this afternoon after missing the opening game due to injury.  Assistant coach Sam Ssimbwa  confirmed on Thursday that Kizito had been training well and is fit for the match. 

The well assembled Victoria University side will hope to register their first win after drawing goalless with KCCA in their opening match last month. But they face a strong URA side that boosts of star players like Robert Ssentongo, Erissa Ssekisambu and Yayo Lutimba.

The other new players expected to feature for Victoria University this afternoon include; Ibrahim Saddam Juma, Manko Kawesa, Ali Kimera, Martin Mpuuga, George Abege and Rwanda’s youthful International Charles Tibingana.

Four other games will be up on card with Masaka LC FC playing host to Vipers, while army side Simba battle Proline who welcome Cranes attacker Mike Sserumaga from Ethiopia’s St. George FC. In the other games defending champions Express will take on Bidco, and SC Villa play Aurum Roses FC.

Entebbe FC currently lead the table with four points from two games, while another new side in top flight football is second with the same number of points, but less goal difference. The defending champions Express FC under Moses Basena are third with one win.
