Raymond Komakech’s charges have lost 5, drawn 2 and won 3 out of the 10 home league games while Vipers SC are now unbeaten in 18 away games.
Michael Nam Ouma haa told the official club website that he is confident and hopeful that his beleaguered troops can overcome the Ndejje challenge.
“I said before that every match for us is like a final so every game is important therefore I am confident and hopeful that my players can make this happen.”
The home side will be without Francis Onekalit since he is on loan from Vipers SC. Richardson Asaba and Isaac Kisujju will be the men to watch for the Raymond Komakech team.
Geoffrey Wasswa, Livingston Mulondo and Bashir Sekagya remain on the sidelines for the Kitende outfit through respective injuries.
Dan Sserunkuma who has scored 11 goals this season alongside Tito Okello and youngster Aziz Kayondo will be expected to guide Vipers SC to maximum points.
Victory can see the Venoms move level on points with leaders KCCA FC who return to action away to Tooro United 24 hours later.
With relegation looming for the league debutants, they will need to maximize points to close the gap on Maroons who currently occupy the final slot of safety.
