Yunus Sentamu believes it is Vipers’ “responsibility” to respond quickly to Friday’s defeat at Buhinga Stadium.

The Venoms were beaten 1-0 by Ibrahim Kirya’s side on Friday, and failed to extend their lead at the top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League to 46 points.

Mark Nsubuga scored a late winner as bottom of the log stunned leaders Vipers. The goal arrived after a solo run by Muhammad Ssenoga in the 79th minute giving hope of survival to Tooro United despite staying at the base have 12 points and just six off safety with ten games remaining.

Sentamu insists one of the crucial factors will be moving on from Friday’s game.

“We are very disappointed, especially with the whole game,” he said. “We know we are better than that. So in that sense we are gutted.”

“But these things happen in football and it is our responsibility to turn that around and we have great opportunity on Wednesday evening next week against Busoga United at Kitende.

“When the first half ended and we failed to covert ourselves, l felt like we had great opportunites to kill off the game. We failed to do that and, credit to Tooro United FC, I thought they were brilliant and we were not up to scratch.

“In the second half we knew we had to improve and I believe that we did that. So there were some mental positives yesterday but we have to put it right on Wednesday.”
