Reigning champions Vipers make a trip to Kabaka Kyabaggu stadium to face Wakiso Giants in the Wakiso derby aiming to pick their second victory.

The Venoms beat Maroons 3-0 in their last outing to register the first season win after firing blanks in the first two games.

In Wakiso Giants, they face a formidable opponent who has won three games in a row and are unbeaten since match day one when they lost to KCCA at Lugogo.

John Ayala Luyinda, the gaffer at the Purple Sharks is relishing the challenge against the defending champions.

“As a coach, these are the kind of games you want to manage,” he said. “We are on a good run at the moment and that gives us motivation to face a good side with quality players and a good coaching staff,” he added.

The hosts are still without three national U-20 players Titus Ssematimba, Marvin Nyanzi and Ronald Madoi while striker Frank Ssebuufu is a doubt through injury.

For the Venoms, wingers Lumala Abdu and Paul Mucureezi are missing and so is Najib Iga (UCE) but they could have defensive stalwart Livingstone Mulondo available again after he missed the Maroons game.
