Startimes Uganda Premier League
Date: February 23, 2021
Venue: St Mary’s stadium
Uganda Premier League defending Champions Vipers SC welcomes BUL FC tomorrow on February 23, at the St Mary’s stadium.
The Venoms will have to put up a more spirited display against the edible oil manufacturers as they prepare to stretch their home winning record to five games.
Kajoba’s side has already beaten Kitara FC, MYDA FC, UPDF FC and Police FC at the St Mary’s stadium .
Vipers SC goalkeeper Kiggundu is ruled out with an injury making Bashir Sekagya and Fabien Mutombora available for selection in goal.
Striker Ceasar Manzoki is fine despite limping off in Vipers win over Police FC on Friday last week.
Rashid Toha resumed training with his teammates but will have to undergo a late fitness test to determine his availability for Fred Kajoba’s side.
On the other hand, BUL FC has no fresh injuries as they prepare to visit the Venoms.
The defending Champions need to improve their backline which has conceded in all but two games. The Venoms have already let in 10 goals in 8 games, a tally that needs a modest improvement.
Vipers head Coach Fred Kajoba says, “there will be a few blushes here and there, but changes can’t happen in one or two days. Its a concern that we are continuously working on in our practice and there are good signs that things will get better.”
A win for Vipers will keep them on top of the table and also boast their confidence going into their away encounter with Onduparaka FC away in Arua on Saturday this week.
On the other hand, Bul FC has won only one of their last five games with their last win coming against KCCA FC at Bugembe stadium. They come into this game seeking quick answers following a humiliating 4-0 home loss to Express last Saturday.
BUL FC currently sits in the 13th position on the table with 7points from 8games.
Arthur Kyesimira’s side is yet to win a game at the St Mary’s and their search for that maiden victory will continue on Tuesday evening.
