Vipers SC could have failed to garner maximum points on Sunday against Mbarara City FC but head coach Michael Nam Ouma is unfazed about the five point gap between us and current leaders KCCA FC.

The coach indicated the gap is reachable as the StarTimes Uganda Premier League enters into the second round starting tomorrow.

“It’s a margin that is reachable and we get into the second round with a five point gap which is achievable.”

He went ahead to state that the team has had a tight fixture in the last weeks where the Venoms played three games in seven days.

“It was always going to be difficult for us. We played in the CAF Confederation Cup then had to play two league matches in a space of two days,” Ouma explained in the post match conference.

Coach Ouma believes that by the time the team returns to action on Friday against Kirinya Jinja SS at home, the period will be enough for the players to re-energize.

“I think we have enough time between now and our next game and that will help us to reorganise and return better.”

Vipers SC settled for a one all draw against Mbarara City FC at St. Mary’s stadium on Sunday. Dan Sserunkuma gave us the lead but the visitors rallied back in the second half with Paul Mucurezi equalising.

The result meant Vipers SC remain the only unbeaten (32 games) team in the league this season now in second place on 31 points.
