KCCA FC made five changes to their losing side slotting in Habib Kavuma in the central defence, online Ntege, cost Senkumba, Wanok and goal scorer Derrick Nsibambi. Okhuti is among those dropped.

First half battle.

The opening half was characterized by quick fruitless counter attacks and a highly charged midfield.

In the 18th to 25th Vipers were handed three cautions for dangerous tackles same period game was stopped twice for Awany to get medical attention.

The city lads came closer for an opener after 29 minutes when Ochaya tested Watenga with a stunning mid range shot which the keeper acrobatically parried over.

Mutyaba curled in a beauty for Nsibambi to head in but was unfortunate to see Bilikwalira clearing the ball off the line.

The clearance wasn’t strong failing to cross the half. Ochaya picked and dropped it back for Nsibambi whose speed beat Watenga to the ball with a decent loop. The striker struggled to push both Bilikwalira and the ball in but was again saved leaving the whole fraternity wailing for a goal which centre referee Mashoud Ssali waved on.

Leku had his 46th minute goal flagged off and later missed to flick in Wadri’s cross with Ochan out of his box.

Vipers will face Onduparaka in finals to be played on Saturday 18th in Kampala.
