Abdallah Mubiru, ask the Vipers head coach started with an all attack minded team with Erisa Ssekisambu and Tonny Odur who was returning from injury leading the attack.

New recruit Hassan Wasswa was also handed his debut at Vipers playing in the holding midfield while Deus Bukenya filled the void left by injured Halid Lwaliwa in the centre back.

After an explosive start that saw the visitors squander several chances, Ssekisambu got the breakthrough in the 31st minute after a layup from Tony Odur  released him to slot past Lweza goalie Brian Bweete.

The Orange brigade almost levelled matters inside the opening minute after the interval but Karim Nduggwa failed to find the target with his effort going wide.
