ETHIOPIAN giants St. George will strive to win the CECAFA Club Championship today largely for Ugandan midfielder Patrick Ochan.

The Cranes star dislocated his left arm during his side’s quarter-final game against Rayon Sport and will miss the crunch final against Rwanda giants APR FC.

Former SC Villa coach and current St George boss Micho Sredojevic now hopes his side will use the incident as further cause to succeed at the Amahoro Stadium.

“I shall assemble a tactful team that can counter APR’s individual talents because I know they don’t play well as a team” said Sredojevic.

St. George are seeking their first title while APR hope to claim their third regional title.

It will be the fourth time that the two sides will be meeting since this year started.

On February 7, the army side played St. George in a friendly match in Kigali – a game the visitors lost 1-0 but won 2-1 in the next build-up arranged the following day.

Then, APR had been preparing for their continental engagements in Angola.
On their way to Angola, APR played a third friendly in Addis-Ababa on February 22 and collapsed to a 3-0 humiliating defeat.

The Ethiopians proved their abilities after dumping the defending champions ATRACO 3-1 in the last semi-final on Thursday.

On their road to the final, APR eliminated Kenyan Champions Sofapaka 1-0 in the first semi-final on Wednesday.

Rwanda President Paul Kagame is expected to be chief guest at the final that will be officiated by the Ugandan Fifa Referee Denis Batte.

The Champion will take home U$30,000 (Sh60m)the second U$ 20,000 (Sh40m) and third U$ 10,000 (Sh20m).
