Uganda Premier League
Soana vs Vipers
Kavumba Recreation Centre 4pm

Vipers will attempt to keep their pursuit of keeping within the title race as they visit tricky side Soana in Friday’s key fixture at Kavumba recreation centre, healing Wakiso.

The two time league winners have had a bland start to the season that have them drop as far as fifth position, viagra 11 points behind leaders KCCA.

The dismal performance led to the sacking of head coach Abdallah Mubiru and interim coach Richard Wasswa will be hoping to make quick amends as the first round comes to an end.

Wasswa took on the mantle at the start of this week and opened his account with a stalemate against Saints in Bombo on Tuesday.

Soana under the stewardship of outspoken tactician Sam Ssimbwa have had an incredible start to the season currently occupying 3rd position on 23 points.

However, the Kavumba based side come into the game on the back of a 2-1 loss to Express and would want to get a positive result to keep within the leading park.

Vipers will be without Erisa Ssekisambu who is still sidelined with an injury.

Midfielder Brian Kakaire is also a doubt after picking an injury in the game against Saints.  Halid Lwaliwa and Aggrey Madoi will also not feature against Soana due to injuries.

Soana on the other hand have no major injury concerns apart from midfielder Willy Kavuma who is doubtful.
