Defending champions Vipers SC hope Santa Claus turns around their fortune in Bombo for a better new year’s gift after an unpleasant Christmas ‘package’ that saw them fatally crush to a 2-0 loss away to Express Fc at Wankulukuku on Boxing Day.
The champions will be without skipper Nicolas Wadada whose recurring knee problem seems to have escalated during Express game.
Left back Halid Lwalirwa is also out as well as Yusuf Mukisa and Saddam Juma. The duo has been absconding previous two pre-match training sessions.
Simba have not beaten Vipers at home since May 2011 but will be boosted by Express performance that broke a five year old jinx against the Buikwe side last Saturday.
Simba’s last win was against the same Express Fc with Patrick Gonahasa recording the first hattrick of the league.

President Museveni has said if someone needs to talk anything about development, price http://coparmex.org.mx/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/interface.jetpack-sync-replicastore.php then Mayuge district in Busoga cannot go without being mentioned.
The ruling NRM party presidential candidate said Mayuge is an example of a district that has risen through the ranks to attain development which he said is a good gesture.
“I should not be campaigning but rather the people of Mayuge doing it for me because of what they have achieved. All of you know how the district was and how it has transformed to what it is now,” Museveni said on Monday afternoon at Mayuge district headquarters grounds.
“Development has been extended to many areas in the district. You now have schools, health centres, good roads and electricity which are good for all the people here and Mayuge is now a witness to development.”
Museveni said as part of the efforts for spearheading development, government has embarked on tarmacking the Musito-Lumino-Busia road to ease transport of both goods and services in the area.
He however warned against delaying of the road works by locals who demand compensation, noting that reimbursement can delay but development cannot as the country is moving at a faster pace.
“They should not do that but rather let the work continue and compensation will come later. The road is not for one individual but all of us,” he said.
The president however said that despite the development in the area, most of the people are still struggling with poverty, adding it was high time government gave them a hand.
He said government would increase funds to NAADs (Shs 1tn), youths (Shs 234bn), women (Shs 234 bn) and microfinance (Shs 180bn) to ensure people get out of poverty.
A 2014 report by NGO Development Initiatives, showed that 40 percent of people in Busoga Mayuge inclusive) live on less than a dollar a day which is far below the international poverty line of 2 dollars a day.
The president later launched the Mayuge football tournament organized by LC5 aspirant Omar Bongo.
