Vipers Sports Club centre back Livingstone Mulondo is about to make his first-team return according to the club’s strength and conditioning coach Ram Nyakana Mpuga after the defender spent a couple of weeks sidelined due to a knee injury.
The centre half has made positive strides towards recovery after suffering a knee injury on February 12th, 2019 away in Fort Portal during Vipers one-all stalemate with Tooro United.
“He is undergoing the rehabilitation process which will last for a fortnight, this stage involves non-weight bearing strengthening exercises such as squats among others,” Nyakana told www.viperssc.ug.
“He will do this before we go to the gym in the coming days and see how he responds. After this, if Mulondo comes through, then he’s fit; he will be free to begin training with the rest of the team,” he added.
In his absence, Vipers have managed three wins in all competitions against Bright Stars, Express in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League and Kiboga Young in the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
The league holders have lost twice, to Ndejje Lions in the league and Proline in the Uganda Cup, they have also drawn once against Onduparaka in the league and it remains the only game they have failed to score a goal.
Mulondo joined the Venoms from Kirinya Jinja SSS before the start of the current season and has been impressive in defence alongside Halid Lwaliwa.
If all goes well, Mulondo should be back in contention for the Venoms next month as his side continues with their league defence.
Meanwhile, defender cum midfielder Geoffrey Wasswa and goalkeeper Bashir Ssekagya remain major absentees with knee problems both and their return dates remain uncertain.
