Preview: Stun Test For Vipers

Vipers will seek to pass URA FC test when they host the Tax Collectors in the only Uganda Premier League to be played on Saturday at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.

The hosts find themselves playing catch-up with leaders KCCA FC who are six points above but have played two games more than the Kitende based side.

URA FC on the other hand, are ninth with just seven points after a rocky start to the season.

The game between Vipers and URA pits together two of the league’s title contenders and the Venoms will be extra motivated to come out on top.

They have looked a more superior side in recent games beating Police, Onduparaka, Wakiso Giants and Mbarara City with their only draw coming away to defending champions Express.

Their only worry comes in form of Yunus Sentamu after the striker picked a knock against Mbarara City and that leaves striker Caesar Manzoki in spot light to carry the scoring burden.

As Vipers will be nursing the wounds of missing Yunus, URA FC come bossing with former Vipers forward Steven Mukwala who was deemed as surplus to requirements while he was at Kitende.

The former league top scorer come into the tie with a point to prove and no one will doubt his ability given the manner in which he obliterated Tooro United.

Mukwala scored four on the day as URA FC punched holes in struggling Tooro United.

Last season, Vipers needed a late Yunus Sentamu strike to pick a point off URA who had led through Cromwell Rwothomio at Kitende.
