Preview: Vipers Out To Close Gap

Vipers aim to narrow the gap at the top when they host Gaddafi at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende for a Uganda Premier League clash under the floodlights.

Sitting third with 30 points, they trail leaders BUL by seven points but hold two games in hand.

This fixture marks their first game of the Second Round, following the cancellation of their scheduled opener against Arua Hill due to the latter’s failure to complete club licensing.

With ample rest, Vipers are confident in their ability to secure a win in front of their supporters.

Their last competitive outing on January 29 saw them secure a hard-fought 2-1 victory against Lugazi Stars in the Uganda Cup round of 64, with Allan Okello and Milton Karisa finding the net.

Meanwhile, Gaddafi finds themselves embroiled in a relegation battle after a sluggish start to the season.

Currently fourth from the bottom, they sit just one point above the relegation zone.

Their Second Round began with a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to URA, urging them to push for a positive result against Vipers.
