Vipers SC will head into the league duel against Proline FC hopeful of maximum points thanks to their good record against their day’s opponents.

The hosts come into the tie with a record that reads 8 wins against the visitors, with 2 draws and just a single loss in 11 meetings.

Ironically, Proline’s only win against Vipers came courtesy of Mike Sserumaga winner on April 12th, 2013.

The midfielder currently plies his trade with the hosts and is expected to turn guns against his former paymasters.

On top of a good record against Proline, Vipers are yet to drop a point at their new home, St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende with a perfect record that reads 2 out of 2 in all competitions, scoring 8 and conceding none.

Proline coach Mujib Kasule is already wary of threat posed by the hosts at their new home but says his charges have the capability to pick maximum points.

“They are very good a team,” Kasule said of Vipers. “Right now, they are playing well perhaps due to their new stadium and energized fan base,” he added.

We have prepared so well and the target is getting three (3) points. We have been effective on the counter of late and we shall continue with same strategy.

Aggrey Madoi is the only absentee from Vipers’ side with malaria while the visitors, 7th on the 16-team log with 24 points are without Simon Namwanja (injured), Yusuf Mukisa and David Owor (ineligible since on loan from Vipers).

Key players

Fifth placed Vipers who have a chance to go third with maximum points will look to on form Moses Waiswa, Milton Karisa and Erisa Ssekisambu for inspiration while Proline has Gift Ali and Nelson Senkatuka to look out for.
