Vipers lead the Premier League table with 33 points out of 13 games while KCCA FC is in the 5th position having played 9 games.

Vipers last played against URA FC on Monday winning the game by 1-0 thanks to Daniel “Mzee” Serunkuma’s lone strike whereas KCCA FC comfortably beat Express FC 3-1 on Wednesday at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium, with goals from Anaku Sadat, Mike Mutyaba and an own goal by Yiga Mohammad for KCCA while Express’s lone goal was scored by Frank Kalanda.

The fixture comes when both teams have some of their key players away on national team engagement come Sunday against Malawi in Namboole.

Vipers will be without their leading goal scorer Fahad Bayo, captain Halid Lwaliwa and first-choice goalkeeper Mutombora while KCCA will be missing skipper Charles Lukwago, Defensive midfielder Nicholas Kasozi and a young star Allan “Jolly” Okello.
