Uganda Premier League champions Vipers SC are enduring a tight run of games due to their involvement in the CAF Champions League and, by the end of November, they will have played eight League matches in 30 days.
Their start to the month saw them comfortably beat Maroons FC 3-0 last Friday and they now have another against Wakiso Giants FC on Tuesday, at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium.
Vipers will have to play a match every three days, but captain Milton Karisa is not bothered about it taking a toll on the team.
“We’re playing after every three to four days so there will be a very short period to rest but we trust the coach’s program,” said Karisa to the Club’s media.
“The programs will help us get enough time to recover so that we play the next games. Hopefully, we can play better and keep improving.”
Ahead of their Tuesday meeting with the regional rivals, Karisa is confident the team will do just enough to scoop maximum points.
“It’s not going to be an easy game but we’re ready as a team,” he noted before adding.
“The team will fight for three points such that we can maintain a strong run of form. We need to pick positive results.”
The Kitende side is yet to register a league defeat against the Purple Sharks in the history of the topflight.
With six games played previously, Vipers have won and drawn thrice apiece.
Last season at the St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende, the Venoms thrashed them 5-0, with Yunus Sentamu scoring four times and Cesar Manzoki netting the other.
It ended 2-1 at the Kyabaggu Stadium thanks to strikes from Bobosi Byaruhanga and Manzoki, while Moses Aliro netted Wakiso’s only goal of the evening.
