Left-back Joseph Ochaya has provided tips on how Uganda can beat Ghana on Saturday in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Ochaya, who played in Ghana between 2012-2014 for Asante Kotoko, believes Ghana’s strength lies in the middle of the park.

He wants the Cranes to keep the tabs on Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey who is the engine of the Ghana's play.

With the Black Stars missing several key players, it looks like it could be an easier task for Uganda.

''If you destroy their midfield, you beat them,'' emphasised Ochaya. ''I also don’t think their goalkeeping is that strong.''

Uganda have got their own issues with first choice centre-back Murushid Juuko and dependable anchorman Khalid Aucho out suspended.

Bernard Muwanga is the likely replacement to partner Isaac Isinde at the back, while Tony Mawejje’s return to the side could not have been more timely in Aucho’s absence.
