Ojee for Zims duel

KCB winger Jacob Ojee has been declared fit for Saturday’s Africa Gold Cup clash against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo.
Ojee was stretchered off the pitch in Saturday’s 45-25 win against Senegal at the RFUEA ground with the technical bench observing it was a bruised rib injury..
Assistant coach Dominique Habimana yesterday said the injury was not too serious and after training session on Monday, the player passed fitness protocols.
Habimana said the Ojee speed and ability to score tries from anywhere on the pitch will be key against a wounded Sables outfit who are still smarting form a narrow 31-26 defeat to Namibia last weekend in Windhoek. “He is a key player for us. He has been in good form for our international matches and we believe he will be an asset to the team in not only the match against Zimbabwe but also our away match against Namibia the weekend after,” added Habimana.
Ojee has scored five tries in the international matches same as Darwin Mukidza and Habimana said they will make minimal changes to the squad.
“We had a good outing against Senegal and so I don’t intend to make so many changes for the match against Zimbabwe,” he added.
The tactician said they will have to reduce the error rate and be patient in attack.
“We dominated the first half against Senegal but our error rate increased in the second half. We were also not patient in attack and squandered three to four try scoring opportunities—something we need to work ahead of the Zimbabwe game,” he added.
Habimana said he is expecting a tough contest against Zimbabwe. “They have similar playing style with us. Very expansive and they are very fast. We must also bring the physicality to them,” he noted.
The Kenya Simbas beat Zimbabwe 61-15 last year in Harare but Habimana said he is expecting a different contest this time round. “Last year, they had internal challenges and they have since put them behind them. Last week, they almost beat Namibia at their backyard and so we expect a competitive game,” he observed.
Namibia top the standings with 15 points while Kenya are second on 12 points. Uganda (11 points), Zimbabwe (six) and Senegal (one) and Tunisia (zero) follow in that order.
