Vipers will hope their unbeaten streak against Wakiso Giants continues when the two face off at Kitende under the floodlights on Tuesday.
The champions ended a two-match winless run in which they played goalless with Mbarara City and Villa (1-1) with a deserved but labored 2-0 away win to Bright Stars on Friday.
Against the Purple Sharks who are yet to hit top gear this season, Vipers will be favourites but games between the two sides are never straight forward with the eight league meetings providing only three wins.
Eric Kambale, Yunus Sentamu and Lumala Abdu could continue to lead the line if Captain Milton Karisa is declared unfit again with Paul Willa, Apollo Kagogwe and Ambrose Arinda tasked with keep them at bay.
Wakiso Giants could have midfielder Samson Kigozi return to the squad after he missed the 3-1 defeat to Kitara but anchorman Lawrence Bukenya and Alex Komakech remain out.
