Uganda Premier League leaders Vipers are expected to recall the services of Allan Kayiwa and Abram Ndugwa ahead of duel with Onduparaka at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

The duo has missed a couple of games and will be hoping to play a part as new coach Fred Kajoba prepares for his first game at home.

Vipers, top of the log with 43 points, will be hoping to stretch their lead to five points at the summit after second placed KCCA FC were beaten by URA FC on Friday.

The club has confirmed that Fahad Bayo who was taken off midway through the second half for Tito Okello in the goalless draw against Mbarara, is fit to play.

Halid Lwaliwa and Siraje Ssentamu are set to miss out however.

The hosts will be targeting to win their first game after a three winless run – They lost to Villa and Kajjansi United before Mbarara stalemate.

Onduparaka FC on the other hand beat Busoga United in their last league engagement and will be hoping to build on that for more glory.

The Caterpillars have had to endure a rough spell that has seen a couple of their players, including three who have joined Wakiso Giants, leave the club due to financial constraints.

They sit fifth on the log with 30 points amidst all the challenges and could go third with a win on Sunday.

However, they visit Kitende which has been one of their worst hunting grounds – To be specific, Onduparaka has lost all their last three games at St Mary’s.

Onduparaka were hammered 3-0 at Kitende last season with Geoffrey Wasswa, Livingston Mulondo and Dan Sserunkuma on target.

Notably, Vipers has managed to keep a clean sheet in their last five league meetings against Onduparaka.
