"Makwatta was missed in the first leg, he is a player who you definitely you do not want to miss in your team. He is back and we are delighted with the new development. My only concern is for Bonface Onyango, he sustained a knock on his knee on Wednesday and we will have to give him until Friday before our final verdict."

Ulinzi need to win on Saturday by two goals to advance to the next round of Caf Confederations Cup.
