It is going to be a mouthwatering encounter when table leaders Vipers FC host second placed KCCA FC at St Mary’s stadium in StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

Vipers are top of the table with a two points advantage over KCCA. The ‘Kasasiro’ boys dropped points at home to Mbarara City while Vipers got a point off stubborn Kirinya Jinja SSS.

“It is going to be a good game and goals are going to be scored but it is not yet a two-horse race, I predict it will be a six horse race this season,” Mike Mutebi told the Grapevine.

A win for Vipers will consolidate their stay on top boasting their confidence ahead of their visit to a revitalized Express FC next week.

Team News:-

Vipers have fitness concerns with Livingstone Mulondo ruled out of this clash after picking a knee injury against Kirinnya-Jinja. Aggrey Madoi resumed training with the rest of the team but this fixture comes too early for him as he lacks match fitness.

Goal keeper Derrick Ochan picked a shoulder injury during the team’s training session, this means that Fabien Mutombora and Bashir Ssekagya will keep their places.

Tom Masiko will be reunited with his former manager, Mike Mutebi on Saturday. Tadeo Lwanga will miss this game, he is still completing his two match suspension but will return for Vipers trip to Wankulukuku.

“We were disappointed with the result on Tuesday in Jinja. I think we deserved more than that but a point picked away isn’t bad. You cannot change your approach. With or without the ball we are going to try to have a strategy for KCCA FC and play in the way we have been playing,” Vipers’ boss Espinoza Martinez said.

Moses Waiswa the Viper’s midfielder said, “We’re playing against one of the top teams in the country and we have to play our way because if we do that we know we can cause problems.”

KCCA welcome back Filbert Obechan and Hassan Musanja but they will miss the services of Hassan Jurua who was red carded in the game against Mbarara City.

Head to Head;

Vipers 0-1 KCCA

Vipers 3-2 KCCA

KCCA 3-1 Vipers

KCCA 1-2 Vipers

Viper 2-1 KCCA

KCCA 0-0 Vipers

Vipers 2-2 KCCA

Meanwhile Villa will be seeking their first win in the league this season against a well organised Mbarara City that picked a point at the Start Times stadium on Wednesday against KCCA.
