Six time Uganda Premier league champions Vipers SC have confirmed that their Nigerian striker Abubakar Lawal will be out for weeks.

According to the club website, Lawal sustained a fracture to his right hand finger during their Uganda Cup round of 32 tie with Rugarama FC.

Lawal will miss Vipers forthcoming fixtures against Wakiso Giants (Sunday, 10 March) and KCCA FC (15th, March).

Ghanain Fumador Awisome and Mauritanian Mohamed Ekbad Salem are expected to fill his void.
