Tuesday’s Result

Vipers SC 1-0 Wakiso Giants FC

The Venoms stretched our lead at the top of the table with yet another win at home.

Fahad Bayo continued with his fine form by scoring the lone goal as we saw off Wakiso Giants FC on Tuesday.

Victory meant we cemented our summit status moving to 30 points in 12 games played so far.

Here is the manager’s reaction on the game

About the game…

“A good game and an important result for us. I thank the players for the performance today and making sure we came out victorious.”

About the importance of the win…

“We are pleased that the team once again picked maximum points today. It is important to keep the winning touch because you never know what the next games bring.”

“If we keep winning, the spirits of the boys are kept high and the morale in the team is lifted hence helping us in realising our target this season.”

About commitment from the players…

“I must say, the boys have showed great character in the last three or four games that have been tricky but they have remained committed and toiled hard to keep the team going. Against Wakiso Giants, they showed the same qualities and that helped us to win.”

Game of two halves…

“We started on a good note and dominated proceedings. We had the chance to kill off the game by first half but I think we did not have calmness in the final third and failed to take away the chances. Our opponents tried to improve in the second half and it became a bit tricky but I’m happy that the boys showed resilience to hold on.”

Plaudits for Bobos Byaruhanga…

“He is an important player on the team. Despite being a young player who is just coming into the senior team, he shows great understanding of the game, wants to take control especially when we get the ball. He scored a vital goal against Busoga United FC and today, he had an assist for Bayo’s goal.”

“I have been with him at the school team and I know what he can offer to the team. We do not want to rush him but help him grow gradually.”

About fatigue…

“We had quite a tedious fixture in the last four game. We played Kyetume at Namboole then made a long trip to Arua to play Onduparaka FC. From there, we embarked on another journey to Jinja and then played here again. This has had an effect on the players’ body and I saw it today. In the second half, most of them were tired.”

It should be noted that our next fixture was initially supposed to be away at Maroons FC but the game was called off and will be rescheduled to a date yet to be communicated.
