Having lost 1-0 away to Gaddafi Modern FC on Sunday, Vipers SC responded with an emphatic 4-0 victory over Onduparaka FC in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Wednesday.
The above response to defeat left head coach Roberto Oliveira thrilled in the aftermath of the game against Onduparaka at Kitende.
“It was a good result in response to a loss, we generally had a good performance and deserved all three points,” Oliveira said in the post-match press conference.
“We did not just win the game but we won with style and this has been my priority for the one year and a half that I have been at this club.”
“But at times it tends to be difficult to play with such a style depending on where you play from football is an art it should be played on good pitches.”
“When you play on a bad pitch definitely that is always going to affect the quality of the game you play,” he added.
Bright Anukani, Abdul Karim Watambala, Ibrahim Orit, and captain Milton Karisa were the players on target for the Venoms on the day.
Anukani netted a penalty in the 23rd minute, and a minute later, Watambala added a second for the hosts to lead 2-0 at the interval.
Orit was on target in the 75th minute before Karisa sealed it in the 90th minute taking the Kitende-based outfit on 23 points after 11 games.
They are level on points with BUL FC but occupy the top position with a better goal difference. Vipers will visit Express on Tuesday, December 13th.
Karisa was named the man of the match after he scored once and managed two assists on the day.
