Champions Vipers could stretch lead at the summit if they bag maximum points at Kyetume on Tuesday.

The Venoms sit top with 14 points from six encounters but could stretch lead if none of Police and UPDF pick maximum points in their respective fixtures against Bul and Onduparaka.

Fred Kajoba’s side remain one of the unbeaten sides so far in the competition and will hope to build on the hard fought win against UPDF at Kyetume.

Kajoba is expected to ring changes from the side that struggled past the army side by recalling Paul Mucureezi and Livingstone Mulondo to the starting eleven.

But all eyes will be Yunus Sentamu who has scored three goals in as many appearances since returning to the club including the winner against Kefa Kisala’s UPDF.

On the other hand, Kyetume seek to bounce back after falling to Police 3-1 last week.

The tactician will rely on Uganda Cranes defender Mustafa Mujjuzi to keep things tight at the back with Baker Buyala and Feni Ali searching for goals.

Kyetume lie 8th on the 16-team table with 9 points, five behind log leaders Vipers after six games.

Last season’s fixtures ended in favour of Vipers, winning 1-0 at Kitende through Paul Mucureezi goal and then 2-1 away with Daniel Sserunkuma and Fahad Bayo scoring for Vipers and Robert Ssentongo for Kyetume.
