Vipers SC returned to winning ways with a commanding 3-0 win against Onduparaka FC at St. Mary’s stadium on Tuesday. The Venoms had registered two successive draws in the last two league games.
Geoffrey Wasswa, Dan Sserunkuma and Livingstone Mulondo scored a goal each in the second half to help the Venoms secure maximum points.
Coach Michael Nam Ouma was delighted with the display exhibited especially in the second half indicating the players showed commitment on the day.
“I want to thank the players for a wonderful display exhibited. We were in control right from the onset and even when we failed to score in the first half, they kept surging forward and the goals eventually came in the second half,” said coach Ouma.
He stated that there was an improvement from the previous game against Bright Stars FC and that helped the team to win the match.
“I think we improved a lot in our performance from the previous game. We showed composure and hunger for goals.” he said.
On the importance of the game, the coach indicated it was timely and acted as a good precursor ahead of the Total CAF Confederation Cup encounter against CS Sfaxien slated for Saturday.
“The win was very important because we had gone three games without scoring but this helps to reawaken our spirits and considering that we have a game on Saturday, this acted as a big boost.”
New signing Innocent Wafula made his début on the day playing for 63 minutes before paving way for Abraham Ndugwa. The coach said, he had a good performance in his first game.
“I believe he had a good performance this being his first game, he will need more time to jell with the rest of the squad. He created a couple of chances and also had attempts at goal. He is a good addition who I think will be important to the team.”
The win meant Vipers SC remained second on the league table on 29 points but with two games to end the first round.
