STARTIMES UGANDA PREMIER LEAGUE
Vipers SC 2-1 Kitara FC
Dan Sserunkuma came off the bench to grab a late winner as we registered our first win out of two at the start of the season.
Brian Mululi Mayanja had given the league’s new entrants Kitara FC the lead earlier in the 54th minute before Paul Mucureezi also came off the bench to equalise in the 81st minute.
In truth we were below par for much of our opening home game of the campaign, despite missing a couple of chances.
The two teams played to a dull first half with less penetration from the hosts despite the visitors sitting behind and playing on the break.
There were a few chances with Muhammad Shaban, Najib Yiga and Disan Galiwango missing some good chances.
At the start of the second half, Bobosi Byaruhanga replaced injured Siraje Sentamu and later Daniel Sserunkuma and Paul Mucureezi came on for Iga and Jamil Kaliisa.
But it was the visitors that surprisingly went ahead when on the break, Mayanja combined well with Peter Lomoro to slot past goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora.
We were awakened by the goal and Denis Mwemezi who had replaced Ibrahim Oriti set up fellow substitute Mucureezi who flicked the header over Kitara’s goalie for the equaliser.
Two minutes later, Sserunkuma tapped home after some good work by Muhammad Shaban inside the area.
The win takes Vipers to four points from two games and in 7th position ahead of Sunday’s trip to Njeru to face Busoga United.
