Who scored more in Vipers’ significant victory over SC Villa


Vipers starting XI against SC Villa

By: Danito Nsubuga

Daniel Mzee Serunkuuma delivered the goods when Vipers SC edged SC Villa with a slender goal margin to swing the title tide into their own hands but how did the rest of his teammates fare?

Ismael Watenga 7.0

Watenga produced a steady perfomance in goal

Vipers’ first choice proved why he is highly rated in the Cranes set up. He made a series of timely saves and the best was his quick reaction against George Senkaba in the second half.

Nicholas Wadada 6.0

Decent outing for him. He tried containing Martin Kizza but struggled when challenged by Allan Kyambadde, Wadada did not make any of his usual forwad surging runsĀ and his howler almost gifted Senkaba win an equaliser but Watenga did amends for him

Duncan Seninde 6.5

Seninde is making the most of his chance presented by Yayo Lutimba and Birikwalira’s absence

He punched above his weight. One of Vipers’ best performers on the day. He troubled Mukasa Musa and he went close to finding a goal to himself.

Bashir Asiku 6.5

Bashir Asiku steals the ball from Kitatta

What a commanding display from the youngster!. He looked composed and assured of what he was doing especially facing experienced forwards like Kizza, Kitatta and Kyambadde.

Halid Lwaliwa 6.0

Lwaliwa made an appearance after a long spell out injured

After a long spell on the sidelines, Lwaliwa showed flashes of his immense potential as a calm and comfortable defender. He was however timid going into 50/50 challenges which almost cost his team.

Taddeo Lwanga 6.5

Lwanga completed a double over his former team

Facing his former team, Lwanga played like a man with a point to prove. He indulged in all the challenges that came his way, he dominated the center of midfield especially in the first period, he sat deeper though in the second half when Villa were in ascendancy.

Brian Nkuubi 6.0

Nkuubi started alongside Lwanga in midfield

Lwanga’s central midfield partner provided the only assist of the game. He made a series of forward runs from deep midfield, his long balls were also inch perfect.

Geoffrey Wasswa 6.0

Played on the left side of a 3 man defense. Wasswa did well in nullifying Godfrey Lwesibawa’s pace but later on struggled contending with Bogere

Milton Karisa 5.5

Troubled Katongole and Muwanga with his pace and power but he wasn’t as dangerous as usual. He forced Samson Kirya into a splendid save in the first half.

Erisa Sekisambu 6.0

Sekisambu had a relatively good game

Another SC Villa old boy in the Vipers starting eleven. Sekisambu’s on and off the ball movements troubled the Villa defence and he nearly killed the game off on the counter.

Daniel Serunkuuma 7.0

He scored the goal in predatory style. What else can be said of the striker? He provided the moment that revived Vipers’ title hopes


Deus Bukenya 5.0

Brought on for the tiring Duncan Seninde after the break. Bukenya added more steal in midfield. He did exactly that.

Moses Waiswa 5.0

Brought on for Brian Nkuubi, Waiswa did not have enough to impose on the game but he showed flashes of his offensive ability especially by initiating counter attacks

Baden Ogama Mujahid N/A

Introduced deep in added time for Dan Serunkuuma

Coach :

Miguel Da Costa 6.5

Da Costa speaks to the media after the match

Bold decision to start Halid Lwaliwa, a defender that was returning from a lengthy lay off at the heart of a 3 man defense and he also showed some qualities of proper game management with his timely substitutions. He will also be commended for resurrecting Vipers’ title hopes
