The Scottish Club had confirmed on Friday that the towering defender suffered a dislocated shoulder in training and will be on the sidelines for four to six weeks.

“Bevis Mugabi will be out for four to six weeks with a dislocated shoulder.” Read the statement from the club.

“The defender, who has established himself as an important figure in the Motherwell backline, suffered the injury on his return to training earlier this week. His injury will be a blow to the club manager Stephen Robinson said.

“He has played his way into the team and acquitted himself very well. “He just seems to be unfortunate that when he gets a run of games, he suffers an injury.”

Mugabi was part of Uganda 26 contingent who took part in a warmer training camp with Uganda Cranes in Dubai last week. FUFA and the cranes Head coach Johnathan Mckinstry who applauded his troops for the efforts and hardwork put up while in Dubai will now have to look elsewhere when he will be summoning his 23 man squad to face the Bright Stars of South Sudan.
