URA FC vs Vipers SC
Having played out to a goalless draw with KCCA in the previous game, table leaders Vipers SC returns into action visiting URA FC on Friday at the Arena of Visions, Bombo.
Vipers’ goalless draw with defending champions at Kitende kept them five points clear on top and hence will aim for maximum points away to URA to stretch their point lead to eight.
Vipers’ camp is boosted by the timely return of left back Aziz Kayondo who returns to the team after serving his one-match suspension having accumulated three yellow cards.
Geoffrey Wasswa was deployed at left back in the draw with KCCA but Kayondo’s return boosts Fred Kajoba’s defense options with Halid Lwaliwa out of this fixture with a swollen toe.
The Venoms will miss dread-locked forward Tito Okello who was forced off the previous game after picking a head injury thus this game comes a little too early for him.
Okello will instead be available for the next fixture against Luzira Prisons-based Maroons next week.
The dynamic pair of Umar Kyebatala and Abraham Ndugwa could make the match day squad after missing the last game.
For the hosts, they will be looking for answers coming into this tie after their 12 match unbeaten run was halted by 10-man Busoga United earlier this week.
Vipers has registered 3 wins, 8 draws and 4 losses, in their previous 15 games against URA hence coach Fred Kajoba will aim at helping get the needed results against URA.
The reverse fixture at Kitende ended 1-0 as the Venoms got all the three points at home hence URA will aim at making revenge.
URA FC – Shafik Kagimu, Saidi Kyeyune, Cromwell Rwothomio
Vippers SC – Fahad Bayo, Paul Mucureezi, Allan Kayiwa
