UPL: Express FC takes on Vipers in crunch tie

Following their 7-0 win against MYDA FC, Vipers will travel to Betway Muteesa II stadium Wankulukuku to take on Express FC on Tuesday evening.

The Red Eagles are so far well within their quest of winning silverware this season having picked up eight points from four games before the league break.

However, their focus shifts to picking up maximum points against the venoms who have racked up four wins and two draws in the last seven meetings against Vipers SC.

According to head coach Wasswa Bbosa, the target couldn’t have been more obvious.

“A lot of positive progress has happened during the break with the team,” Bbosa said before adding.

“We’ve used the time to be sharper in front of goal and also understand each other better and just like I said in my matchday programme notes.”

“We respect vipers but our target is to get maximum points and if we execute our game plan, i am sure we shall pull through,” he added.

Wasswa Bossa has a fully fit squad to pick from with no injury worries. Only left back Arthur Kiggundu faces a late fitness test for Express FC.

Kajoba ready for Express FC

According to Vipers SC head coach Fred Kajoba, his side’s unbeaten run this season will be put to a real test by an improved and confident opponent in Express FC.

“We know the kind of opponent we are going to play and the atmosphere,” Fred Kajoba said.

“They’re a good side but we are set for the challenge. We are not going to be complacent despite our last win.”

“We expect our opponent to play the same way and we attack from our defence. But the most important thing for us is to play according to our plan,” he added.

Express has scored a goal in each of their last four games this season and they are yet to lose a game at home.

The Red Eagles beat both Bright Stars FC and SC Villa at a ground they seem intent on turning into a ‘fortress’ this term.
