Vipers SC Vs Masavu

Da Costa and his assistant Edward Golola

Vipers head coach Miguel Da Costa starts his four-match touchline ban on Tuesday when they host relegation bound Masavu at St Mary’s Stadium Kitende.

That means his deputy Edward Golola, who led Vipers to two league titles, will be in charge.

And Golola acknowledges the huge task at hand as the Azam Uganda Premier League (AUPL) title race heats up.

“It is an important week for us since we have five games in 10 days,” said Golola.

“We attach a lot of importance in the remaining games, starting with Masavu.

“Masavu have players that can decide a game at any given moment. It will be a tough encounter since they are fighting relegation.”

Masavu coach Alex Gitta says they are giving it all they have in the fight for survival.

“Even a point will be enough for our cause,” he said, “Vipers is desperate for the title and will want to score more goals against us which we won’t allow.”

The basement side miss suspended talisman Abraham Ndugwa but Gitta believes they can ride on the experience of Athur Ssemazzi, Philly Lutaaya and Simon Namwanja to pick something from the game.

SC Villa top standings on 49 points, with Vipers and KCCA three and four behind. The Jogoos have, however, played a game more.
