Topflight Teams to Clash in Cup Action

Vipers Sports Club have a chance to cut the lead at the top of the Uganda Premier League table when they travel to Wankulukuku to play Lweza FC in one of their pending fixtures.

The defending champions have 31 points and could cut the difference with KCCA FC to only one point with a game to spare. Coach Nsiimbe will take his boys to this game on high morale with fact that Vipers have not lost any league game against Lweza.

The first leg affair ended in one all draw at Buikwe with goals from Erisa Sekisambu and Rajab Kakooza. Both sides enter the game at the back of identical 2-0 wins on Saturday.

The Tuesday hosts defeated Maroons to earn their fourth away win while Vipers overcame a struggling Sadolin Paints. Sulaiman Mutyaba scored his debut strike since returning to the Kitende sponsored side. Lweza have a poor home record where they won only twice and drawn once in eight outings.

“We need to be very consistent between now and the end of the season.” says Vipers coach Nsiimbe.

Lweza will still miss the services of their team top scorer Sserunkuma who sustained a head injury and Ibrahim Kiyemba (knee). On the other hand, shop Vipers are without Dan Bilikwalira, cheap Shafik Bakaki and William Wadri due to injuries while Alfred Leku has been omitted from the travelling party on tactical grounds. Nsiimbe will also be welcoming back defender Halid Lwalirwa.
The Uganda Cup round of 16 continues on Women’s Day with two fixtures. In one of the games, viagra sale Maroons Fc will try to forget their bad run in the league and hope to pick silverware in the Uganda Cup competitions. The Prisons side hosts an on-form Bright Stars FC at Luzira.

To reach this stage, generic the Prison warders have had to navigate a rougher route against lower division sides where they qualified through post-match penalties against Lira united and Amuria Crane City FC in the 64 and 32 stages respectively.

Bright Stars FC on the other side have been among the most lethal sides in the competition whitewashing Kyambura Rasters and Kireka United 6-0 and 3-1 in the two rounds.


There are a lot of scores to settle in this tie with former players meeting their former paymasters. The first leg in the league ended with Soana winning their first ever game against the Eastern giants with goal courtesy of former BUL FC captain Crespo Asiku.

Coach Alex Isabirye is unlikely to change the team formation that won away to league leaders KCCA FC away on Saturday. David Kiiza scored the lone goal.

After a long time in the cold, medical Franco Oringa returned in between the sticks with a five-star performance. Junior Mukisa and Derrick Walulya are expected to continue in the heart of defense even though Philip Sempiira is back and fully fit after missing the Saturday win.

“Our priority is to get at least silverware this season and apart from the league, Uganda cup is also another great chance.  When I took over this job, I promised one day to at least play one African giant here in Jinja. I know it won’t be any easy game but am sure we are going to win.”

Soana face a huge task to redeem themselves after crushing 4-0 to The Saints FC at Namboole on Saturday. Former Bul fc keeper Didi Muhammad was pulled off before halftime for tactical reasons.

If selected for Bul, Farouk Osama and Paul Kibande will be playing their former paymasters, as well as Soana’s trio of Crespo Asiku, Didi Muhammad and Simon Okwil.
