Vipers aim to make a statement in a tittle decider.

UGANDA  PREMIER LEAGUE:

Vipers  vs KCCA 

kickoff  .4pm

venue.  St Mary’s  stadium. 

Broadcast.  Sanyuka TV.

 

Sports  club vipers  host KCCA fc  in an exciting  game that could  determine  the champion  at the end of the  season . They will be battling  for three points  that could determine  the destiny  of the trophy  .

Vipers will be hoping  to extend their lead at the top of ladder to  eight points  and keep  their  hopes of winning  the fourth  league  tittle alive when they take  on  second  placed and potential  tittle  challenger KCCA  fc at st Mary’s  stadium this evening.

The venoms are on top of the table  standings  with 49 points  ,five points  above KCCA  who have garnered  44 points  from 21 matches. However  things could change if the garbage  collectors  claim  bragging  rights in today’s  game . KCCA  has a chance  to close the gap to two points and  keep the sight of the table  leaders  but  that looks  like a mountain  to climb at Kitende where Vipers  has lost just one game in this campaign.

 

Match  Facts. 

Both  clubs  have met 29 times and they are still  tied in terms  of wins with either side winning 11 times and they  have drawn  on 7 occasions.

KCCA  is unbeaten in their  last four (4) meetings  with  the  venoms .    Kasasiro boys have won 2 and drawn  2 .

Last season  both  encounters ended  in 1-1 all draw and in this season  reverse fixture  KCCA fc  condemned  the table leaders  to 1-0 defeat at lugogo Star Times stadium.

 

Milton Kalisa is expected  to start after completing   the transfer  from  Moroccan  side Moulidia.

 

Vipers  welcome  back  their  campaign  top scorer  Fahad Bayo  after suspension   and that leaves head coach  Fred  Kajoba with  a headache  on who will  partner the towering  forward as he has to choose between  Dan Serunkuma and  their  last game hat trick  hero  Tito Okello.

Still  in midfield  they will be boosted  by the return  of Siraje Sentamu and youngster  Karim Watambala to full fitness.

In defence  Captain  Halid Lwaliwa comes  but they will miss Farouk Musisi who is injured  and Ali Kayondo will sit out after accumulating  3 yellow  cards.

Coach  Mike Mutebi will look to  former Vipers  players  that is Mike  Mutyaba, Keziron  Kizito, Erisha Ssekisambu  and Sam Ssenyonjo to inspire  the rest  against their  former  side.

KCCA fc will  miss Jurua Monday who is sick , Samuel  Kato ,Sadat Anaku and John  Revita  who have minor  injuries.
