Vipers SC will however take to the field without their Portuguese tactician Miguel Jorge Da Costa who is serving suspension for attacking match officials in a previous match.


Team captain Captain Nicholas Wadada and Taddeo Lwanga who were suspended for the game against Masavu FC are set to return for the epic encounter. "We are going all out to get three points because this game means a lot for us if we are to win the League title," Wadada told URN.


The Vipers SC who stopped Masavu FC 3-1 on Tuesday lead the table standing with 49 points, while KCCA FC are third with 48 points.


The defending champions KCCA FC who are also preparing for their away game against Township Rollers FC in the CAF Champions League have also vowed to prove a point. Coach Mike Hillary Mutebi told URN on Friday morning that after the 7-2 win over URA FC early in the week, he is optimistic his team has what it take to pick maximum points in Kitende.


" We have been creating so many scoring chances and now the team has started to knock them in. I hope they can get the goals that will get us the three points," added Mutebi.


All eyes will be on Vipers SC's in-form striker Dan 'Muzeyi'Sserunkuma, Milton Karisa and former KCCA FC attacking midfielder Tom Masiko for the home side, while Shaban Muhammad, fresh from netting four goals in the win against URA FC on Tuesday and Allan Okello will be the stars to watch for KCCA FC.
