FRIDAY UPL FIXTURES
Simba vs. Bright, Bombo
Villa vs. SCVU, Nakivubo
Vipers vs. BUL, Buikwe
The Saints vs. Police, Namboole
Vipers SC players have to put in extra shifts after head coach George “Best” Nsimbe bashed their sluggish start against SC Villa last Friday. The Buikwe based conceded as early as the 10th minute during a home draw with SC Villa in the Azam Uganda Premier League.
The league defending champions have not been convincing enough in their bid to cut KCCA’s at the top “I was disappointed with the slow start but we showed plenty of character afterwards,” Nsimbe stated after the game in Buikwe.
“There is still a long way to go in the race for the title although the slight advantage is now with our rivals,” added Nsimbe.
Vipers who return to action today when they host Jinja based BUL however squeezed a 2-0 win over Soana in their last home outing with goals in each half by Erisa Sekisambu and David Owori and the win away to Bright Stars took defending champions to within six points of table leaders KCCA with a game to spare and thus believe the race is still open.
“Bul is not a side to take for granted,” he told the league website. “They’re a good side and will be seeking to upset us but we are going to play an attacking game,” he added. The two sides played out a goalless draw in the first leg in Kakindu.
