Unbeaten table leaders Vipers SC will be looking forward to their maiden victory and first goal at the Greenlight stadium, Arua when they visit Onduparaka this Saturday in the StarTimes Uganda premier league.
The Caterpillars already lost their virginity at home after the 2-1 loss to URA but this will not be source of confidence for the visiting three-time champions. In the last three visits to Onduparaka, the Venoms have lost (1-0) and played to a barren stalemate in the other two games.
Onduparaka, who come off a humiliating 4-0 away loss to KCCA are 4th with 15 points in 8 games while Vipers SC who were 2-1 home winners over BUL in the last game are at the top of the log with 20 points in 8 games.
The fixture will be the first game shown live at Sanyuka TV (StarTimes) from Arua this season and Edward Golola, the Vipers SC head coach, believes that ascending to the summit on Tuesday gave the team confidence in their pursuit to win the 2019/20 premier league title.
“We shall change our game approach against Onduparaka because it is totally a different team from BUL who were physical and we had to adjust accordingly. We are going to try and score,” noted Golola.
Against BUL, Frank Tumwesigye Zaga and Allan Kayiwa scored their first goals this season and only became the other players to score for Vipers at home.
The other is Brian Kalumba (1) and current league top scorer Fahad Bayo whose six goals have all come at Kitende.
Former Onduparaka captains Rashid Toha and Shaban Mohammed miss return to former side due to injury just as Kenyan import Innocent Wafula.
Shaban haunted his boyhood club on return with KCCA FC in April last year as KCCA FC played to a 1-1 draw with the Caterpillars.
The striker scored inside 7 minutes before Viane Sekajugo (now at Wakiso Giants) leveled after the break while Toha left the West Nile side for Vipers this season and has so far played one game. Ceasor Okuthi will also be facing his former side.
