Township Rollers were expecting their head coach, Nikola Kavazovic back in the country on Monday, ahead of their CAF Champions League clash against Tunisian giants, Esperance on Tuesday night at the National Stadium.
However, the Gaborone side, bottom of Group A, will be without defender, Oscar Ncenga and reigning BTC Premiership Footballer of the Year, Edwin Moalosi, who miss out through suspension and injury respectively.
"The two will miss out. We are expecting Nikola today," said the team's stand-in coach, Thabo Motang during a press conference on Monday.
Captain, Maano Ditshupo, said the team is raring to go, and will give it, its best in the dead rubber.
Rollers have won only once, a 1-0 win against Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) back
This is final match in the group stages, with Esperance already through to the quarter-finals as they top the group. Egypt's Al Ahly in second, are also through, as KCCA and Rollers miss out.
Rollers still have a chance to finish above KCCA if they win, and the Ugandans lose to Al Ahly in the other group match.
Tunisia's coach, Khaled Yahia said they will hand game time to two fringe players, with the group already wrapped up.
