Vipers SC will seek a 10th successive StarTimes Uganda Premier League victory when they visit SC Villa in Njeru on Saturday.

The last time the Venoms failed to pick maximum points was in February, drawing with UPDF FC.

This a streak that has seen Coach Roberto Oliviera’s side clinch the league, a fifth in all, with four matches to spare.

The first round clash at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende ended 3-0 with goals from Yunus Sentamu and a brace from Cesar Manzoki.

That ignited the pair who are locked in a fight for the top scorer’s boot with Manzoki at 17 goals while Sentamu at 13.

Matches between the two rivals are always tense basing on all previous engagements therefore Fufa Technical Center-Njeru won’t be an ideal place for the faint hearted.

Overall, it’s going to be the 33rd meeting between Vipers SC and SC Villa in the league with the Venoms commanding a lions share statistically having registered 14 Wins, 11 draws and 7 Losses, the Venoms have scored 43 goals conceding 32 out of the previous 32 meetings.
