“URA, a good challenge for us “- Kajoba reveals ahead crucial URA-Vipers tie


Vipers SC head coach Fred Kajoba expects URA FC to be a good challenge for him and his players.

The Venoms will make a long trip to Ndejje University to face 4th placed URA FC on Friday evening in the Startimes Uganda Premier league at  the Arena of Visions ground.

Vipers sit atop of the Startimes Uganda Premier league on 50 points and a win would take them 8 points above second placed KCCA FC while the Tax Collectors are 4th on the log having garned 34 points in 22 games.

Fresh from playing out to a bareen draw against KCCA FC on Tuesday, Kajoba will hope his players will bring out their best in order to collect all 3 against a side which is desperate for a win having been humiliated 3-0 in Jinja at the hands of Busoga United.

This is a good challenge for us, we face a good side and such games always bring the best out of everyone.”

Kajoba said

I believe in my players. They have the mental strength, quality and nerve required to breakdown difficult opposition. We’re targeting to win the title and that’s our only target. We’re fighting for it every day. And our desire for it, will drive us to perform better,”

Kajoba added on the clubs’ website

Vipers have a poor record against URA FC having won only once in the last 5 games away from home

The reserve fixture ended in a 1-0 win for Vipers SC at St. Marys Stadium, Kitende.

The two side have met on 30 different occasions with Vipers winning on 6, losing 12 and drawing 12.
