Match Preview: Can Vipers return To Winning Ways?

After that 1-0 loss at home to Express FC and a draw with Wakiso Giants, Vipers will seek to bounce back and return to winning ways.

They find themselves playing catch up as they sit four points adrift of leaders URA FC.

The game against MYDA gives Vipers the right platform to return to winning ways if we are to go with the poor form of the hosts since joining top flight.

The reverse meeting saw Vipers tear down MYDA in threads, winning 7-0 at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.

Then, Yunus Sentamu and Paul Mucureezi scored braces and one each from Ceasar Manzoki, Disan Galiwango and Ibrahim Orit sealed a well deserved win.

There will be no room for errors for Vipers and failure to squeeze out a win will mount more pressure on coach Fred Kajoba.

MYDA who are yet to win a game at home, will seek to capitalise on Vipers poor form to cause a big upset on Wednesday.

And a result against a defending champion will surely pour more life into an already lost battle to survive relegation.

With seven goals to his name, danger-man Ibrahim Nsimbe will carry MYDA FC’s scoring burden on the day.
