Vipers were held by Bright stars in the opening game

approved ‘sans-serif’; color: #222222;”>Two time league champions, adiposity Vipers Sports Club host their second consecutive home game of the season at Nakivubo on Tuesday against boggy side Police FC.

The newly appointed technical bench failed to pick a maximum result against Bright Stars on Friday but largely blames the one all draw to off pitch matters where some of their starting team players had not received licences.

The three are Brian Kakaire, Alfred Leku and William Wadri.

Coach Abdallah promised a better show on Tuesday saying that’s when their season commences.

“We have a few things to address but we had our chances and did not execute them well. By the time we play our next game we shall be a better side,”Mubiru said.

Coach Mubiru has been boosted by the timely return of new signing Tony Odur who had gone for trials in Lebanon. The controversial striker scored ten goals to lift Express FC to the third spot last season.

“It’s another tough game for us, but we’re playing good football and there’s no reason we can’t go there and get the three points,” Odur told Vipers media.

Police FC under coach Sam Timbe picked four points from their Tuesday hosts last season a barren draw in the second leg in Kavumba and 3-1 victory in Buikwe.

Vipers quartet Abdallah Mubiru, his assistants Nsiimbe, Luyinda and striker Tony Odur were key in KCCA FC’s league triumph in 2013/14 season. The three on the bench while Odur their best player. In that season they managed to defeat the cops twice.

The day’s hosts have won five of their last head to head meeting with the cops claiming a stake in only two.

Patrick Sembuya will not be available for selection after completing a season long loan deal to Lweza while Siraje Ssentamu suffered a knock against Bright stars. Youngsters Alfred Leku and Pius Wangi didn’t train with the team in Monday and therefore ruled out of the game.

The match will kick off at 4:30 pm in Nakivubo.
