Vipers’ title defending ambitions dented by stalemate with Tooro united

DANIEL NSUBUGA

Despite their dominant record against Tooro United, Vipers SC failed to reciprocate the much desired drive to grab all three points past their defiant hosts.

Vipers boast of a very impressive record against Wasswa Bbosa’s men having won 8 out of the last 10 previous meetings and they hoped this would be another easy sail through.

However, they had to labour for a point after falling behind within the first quarter of the match , thanks to Godfrey Lwesibawa’s sumptuous free kick that not only beat the wall but also Fabien Mutombora.

Innocent Wafula had earlier on tried to hand Vipers an early lead but his effort couldn’t beat the wood work

Tooro’s lead was short lived and Vipers were repaid for their persistence when Livingstone Mulongo brushed Ibrahim Tembo’s thrown in into Hamid Diego Kiiza’s way to head home an equaliser in the 37th minute.

The striker scored his first goal for Vipers after also being named the day’s captain.

Michael Ouma brought on Joseph Janjali, Brian Nkuubi and Abraham Ndugwa to chase the game but it was a little to late and he will have to pray for favours from BUL FC who are visiting KCCA tomorrow at the Star times stadium.

The earned point sends them to 38 points, 3 behind leaders KCCA and they will host Bright Stars on 20th February 2019.

Tooro United remain unbeaten at their fortress in Buhinga and they will visit Ndejje University on the 20th of February, they remain 8th on the log with 28 points
