Information from Lome indicates that the team could use the Presidential jet, used during the recent trip for their first Group E game against Guinea.

Edgar Watson, the Chief Executive Officer of the Uganda FA confirmed on Wednesday morning that they had received communication from the Togo FA indicating that their team will arrive at mid-day on Friday aboard a chartered plane.

Top striker Emmanuel Sheyi Adebayor, who features for English Premiership side Tottenham Hotspur F.C., is expected to lead the team together with their top goalkeeper Kossi Agassa who features for Riems FC in France.

The Sparrow Hawks have lost two games in the campaign and remain bottom of Group E. They lost 2-1 in their first game away to Guinea and fell 3-2 to Ghana in Lome.  A loss to Uganda cranes in Namboole could be a setback in their attempt to qualify for the 2015 Afcon in Morocco.

The Cranes team leads Group E with four points with a better goal difference than Ghana who have equal number of points.

Meanwhile, the Cranes team will travel on Sunday evening and spend a night in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia before connecting to Lome for their away fixture against Togo on October 15.

  1. Very crucial 2 games. 4 points from the 2 games will be great. If we get 6, we will be going to Morocco
