All roads lead to St. Mary’s stadium, Kitende where four-time champions Vipers and URA face off with either seeking to win to show title capabilities.

The hosts are six points behind leaders KCCA on 13 points but the Kasasiro have played two matches more while URA are on 7 points with 3 games in hand over the leaders.

Vipers assistant coach Marcelo Cardoso understands the challenge in URA who have won 15 of the last 33 games.

“URA is different and more difficult but we are at home with very good pitch conditions and the players are prepared,” Cardoso, Robertinho’s assistant told the club’s website.

“We are going to do everything to win the game; the players know what to do. The motivation is so high and three points is what we shall be working for, nothing less.”

No side has beaten Vipers since they gained promotion to the league than URA who have managed 15 wins against Venoms’ 6 in 33 meetings.

Both teams come on the back of wins with Vipers beating Mbarara City 2-0 away in Kakyeeka while URA walloped Tooro United 6-1.

Vipers will look to Ceaser Mazonki, Ibrahim Oriti and Milton Karisa in the absence of injured Yunus Sentamu.
