Tuesday’s Result

Busoga United 1-0 Vipers SC

Vipers SC narrowly lost 1-0 to Busoga United on Tuesday to end the first round of the Uganda Premier League on the downside.

Ibrahim Kayiwa struck for the hosts at the Fufa

Technical Center, Njeru to hand the Venoms their third defeat of the campaign.

On an evening to forget, there were not so many goalscoring chances from the team, as they got limited to a few half chances.

Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye, in the 34th minute struck from distance but his low drive was easily saved by goalkeeper Micheal Lutaaya.

That was after Lutaaya had fumbled with a cross in the box, before his defenders cleared the ball of the line.

The second half was frustrating as Vipers’ dominance on the ball didn’t turn into scoring chances, as the hosts worked tirelessly to foil our attacks.

Despite the loss, we are just two points away from the summit, as our 27 points’ tally is only bettered by KCCA FC, who are on 29.

The Venoms will not be returning to league action up to at least till February 2023, in a month that will also kickstart our CAF Champions League group stage journey.

Vipers SC XI: Fabien Mutombora (GK), Isa Mubiru, Hillary Mukundane, Bashir Asiku, Siraje Ssentamu, Karim Watambala, Marvin Joseph Youngman, Ashraf Mandela, Ibrahim Orit, Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye, Cromwel Rwothomio.
