Proline Vs Vipers: Hosts Front Hamis Kiiza To Stop Leaders

Resurgent Proline will bank on red-hot attacker Hamis ‘Diego’ Kizza to gun down league leaders Vipers when the two sides square off at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

The hosts come into the difficult tie on the back of a 2-1 away win against Maroons at Luzira where Diego scored a brace.

Proline, bottom of the table with 12 points and three adrift of safety, will hope for the best from the experienced forward who will be facing his former pay masters.

Proline will be going out for revenge against a side they lost to 1-0 in Kitende. Hakim Kiwanuka and Bright Anukani will be other team’s fulcrum going forward.

The hosts will be without defender and captain Mustafa Mujuzi who was sent off against Maroons with Ibrahim Ssendi, James Begesa and Yusuf Mukisa to carry the biggest burden at the back.

What Do The Visitors Have In Store?

Vipers needed a debut goal for new signing Paul Mucureezi to overcome a resilient Kyetume FC fo start the decade with maximum points, however, their performance was far away from convincing.

They return to Lugogo, a place that has not been a good hunting ground for the Venoms. They lost to KCCA at this venue this season and also lost to Proline in Uganda Cup last year at Lugogo.

Goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora is out and has returned to Burundi for burial (DAD) while captain Halid Lwaliwa returns from leave.
