[/media-credit] Striker Tony Odur celebrates one of his 6 goals for Vipers this season.

Vipers coach Richard Wasswa revealed why striker Tony Odur, the club’s top scorer this season, was left out of the match day squad in a dull stalemate at Wankulukuku against Express.

The centre forward has now missed two successive games for the Venoms including the 1-1 draw in Comoros against Volcan di Moroni in which he was an unused substitute.

“Odur wasn’t matching the levels of the team,” said Wasswa when asked why the forward didn’t play.

Tasked to explain what he meant by levels of the team, the soft spoken tactician said the striker’s performance couldn’t earn him a place on the team.

His performance and that of the team couldn’t match. His is below.

For the third time in succession, the two-time league champions settled for a stalemate in all competitions and have scored just once in the previous three.

Wasswa was left disappointed with the loss of two points and admits the team must improve in the final third.

We have lost two vital points because I was expecting a win. Generally, the whole game we have not played well. We still have a lot to do on improving our attacking force. The opportunities have been very rare.

Although he picked a single positive, he still insisted the team’s attacking force gives the technical team a lot to ponder about.

There is progress because we have tried to possess the ball but we have the challenge in attacking, especially in the shooting, movement and the mobility of the players but am hopeful we shall do that with time.

Vipers’ next outing is a home tie against hobbling JMC Hippos with reports indicating the match will be played in Kitende.
