We have the opportunity to move back to the top of the StarTimes Uganda PremierLeague today when we face Onduparaka FC at the Greenlight Stadium, Arua.

The Caterpillars find themselves six points adrift the Venoms while the latter are only one point behind Express who beat Wakiso Giants FC 3-0 yesterday to ascend to top on 22 points . Vipers have ambitions of aiming even higher and retaining the league title thus games like these will be crucial.

Vipers are still unbeaten on the road so far but have to improve their performance away from home. Their last victory came last December against Busoga United at the Fufa Technical Center and have since then registered draws.

In fact they played to 1-1 and 2-2 stalemate with Express FC and Kyetume FC at Wankulukuku and Njeru respectively but need to quickly return to winning ways especially with a tough fixture awaiting them beginning next week.

The Venoms will face Bright Stars FC and Mbarara City FC next week before hosting SC Villa. Their last two matches before winding down the first round will be against URA FC and KCCA FC in Ndejje and Kitende respectively.

“There is no easy game, every match is more like a final for us. We try to give in our all and also make sure we improve with each game. We have not won here before, yes it’s a trend we believe we can change if we do everything right. We can’t forget that we are handling a game at a time, step by step and hope to accomplish our target,” Vipers captain Halid Lwaliwa stated.

Team News:

Denis Kiggundu, Abraham Ndugwa, Ahmed Amayo and Milton Karisa all didn’t make the traveling squad as the quartet are nursing injuries.

Allan Kayiwa returns to the team after being dropped against Kyetume FC, Police FC and BUL FC.

Rashid Toha is back from a hamstring injury and could be named to face his former pay masters for the very first time since joining Vipers.
