Vipers Sports Club for the first time this season scored four goals in one game as the Venoms outwitted Fufa Big League outfit to advance to the round of 16 in the Uganda Cup.

An own goal by Desmond Kyobe, a strike from defender Halid Lwaliwa and a second half brace by Abraham Ndugwa spurred us to a 4-0 win in the game played at St. Mary’s stadium on Tuesday.

Coach Michael Nam Ouma was impressed with the display from the team indicating the display was convincing.

“I’m pleased that the team is improving each game. We played well and dominated proceedings right from the start but most importantly is that we won convincingly to advance to the next stage.”

The coach went ahead to thank the players for a solid performance.

“Despite resting many players, we remained composed and managed to win. Knockout competitions always throw surprises but we showed commitment and overcame our opponents.”

Asked if the result earned means anything ahead of the return leg against CS Sfaxien over the weekend in the Total CAF Confederation Cup, the gaffer stated it brings motivation but indicated the game against the Tunisian outfit will be a different chapter all together.

“Of course it was important to win ahead of the return leg against CS Sfaxien because it gives us motivation but I don’t want to compare two teams on different levels.”

The Venoms earned a walkover in the round of 64 with Rushekere Growers failing to honour the game last month. After defeating Kansai Plascon, the team will wait for the round of 16 draw to know the next opponent.
