The Time: 7pm
The Venue: MTN Omondi Stadium

Defending Vipers SC will be making a short trip on Friday to Lugogo to take on KCCA FC at the MTN Omondi Stadium in the Startimes Uganda Premier League.

The encounter promises blitz as either side will seek three important points for varying reasons.

Vipers will not only hope to ascend further up the table from third where we currently sit with 14 points, but also play to extend our unbeaten run this season.

KCCA, on the other hand, will be looking for their maiden win of the campaign, having lost five and drawn once in six league matches.

Meanwhile, the Venoms lost 1-0 last season at Lugogo to Rogers Mato’s header, before skipper Milton Karisa completed the revenge in the second leg at the St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

KCCA and Vipers will be meeting for the 37th time in the league history, and the Venoms have the edge over the Kasasiro Boys.

We have a victory more than Friday’s hosts, having garnered 15 wins, nine draws and suffered 12 losses.
