BUL Vs Vipers SC
Venue : FUFA Technical Center, Njeru
Kick off : 3:00pm
Date : Sunday 9th February
Vipers will seek to restore their five point lead at the top of the table when they visit an off colour BUL FC at Njeru in a Sunday kick off.
The Venoms have 46 points, two more than their closest rivals KCCA who won there match day 21 game against Maroons in the mid-week.
The game comes just a day after BUL officially unveiled Arthur Kyesimira as the new head coach replacing the sacked Peter Onen.
BUL FC come in this tie looking for their first win in the second round having lost four of the previous games, drawing the other.
The previous 17 meetings between both sides have seen Vipers SC win 10 times, BUL twice and the other five ending in stalemates.
The reverse fixture at Kitende ended 2-1 in favour of The Venoms thanks to Frank Tumwesigye and Allan Kayiwa while Deograciuos Ojok scored for the Jinja based outfit.
The Venoms will miss Bashir Asiku, Halid Lwaliwa, Siraje Sentamu, Farouk Musisi and Livingston Mulondo due to injuries.
Youngster Karim Watambala remains also after picking an injury in their last game against Onduparaka FC last week.
BUL FC can leapfrog Onduparaka in the fifth position with 33 points if they manage to record victory over Vipers.
A win will see Vipers SC move to 49 points.
