Ghana will now face the cranes of Uganda without the services the three key players.

Ghana will be without five first team regulars for the weekend match, including defender Harrison Afful and captain Asamoah Gyan, who led the team in its 5-1 demolition of Congo Brazzaville in their last World Cup qualifier.

"We are still monitoring and that is why it is a national team, you don't always depend on few players".

The former Uganda Cranes skipper was named as part of the interim technical staff for the national team since Mulitin "Micho" Sredojevic left and was available for the back to back games against Egypt.

A win in Kampala is vital for the Black Stars - now placed third in the group with five points from four matches - before their final qualifier against current leaders Egypt, at home in Accra on November 6.

Meanwhile, Coach Kwasi Appiah and his players have intensified their preparation for Saturday's clash at their training basse in the Kenbyan capital, Nairobi.
