The Brief: Vipers SC v Express FC

STARTIMES UGANDA PREMIER LEAGUE

Vipers SC v Express FC
Date: April 23, 2021
Time: 4pm
Venue: St Mary’s stadium
Live on Sanyuka TV

St Mary’s Stadium is the place to be this Friday when the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table leaders Vipers SC host third-placed Express FC in a clash that is bound to be explosive.

This encounter to the Venoms could be one of the title deciders although there are still a host of fixtures to the conclusion of the league. Besides they must-win and boast their morale before they enter into a very crucial and tight bend beginning next month.

The hosts have KCCA, SC Villa, URA, Mbarara City and Bright Stars to battle in May but this match against Express is more vital especially after dropping points at home against Wakiso Giants FC earlier on Tuesday.

The goalless stalemate with the Purple Sharks left the Venoms on 43 points while the Red Eagles trail by six on 37.

Wasswa Bbosa’s side will be seeking their first win at the St Mary’s Stadium after a fruitless past three visits that has seen them leak 10 goals.

Meanwhile Fred Kajoba hopes his charges will be more clinical and sharper infront of the visitors’ goal mouth.

“Well, you cannot get anything after the final whistle when you do not convert those chances into goals. We have to maximise most and bury the opportunities to avoid being punished because that’s the only way out,” Vipers head coach stated.

Team News:

Musa Ssali, Ahmed Amayo are still out with fever but are expected to resume training next week in time for the round of 16 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

Fred Kajoba will have a selection headache as the rest of the squad is in good health and available for selection.
