Despite CAF Confederations Cup woes with a barren draw at home against CS Sfaxien, Vipers are back in action eager for progression in the Stanbic Uganda Cup.

The Kitende based club host Kansai Plascon on Tuesday in the round of 32 clash as the Michael Nam Ouma coached club targets to reach the last 16 in Uganda’s second prominent competition.

Immediate response is required before the team travels to North Africa for the Total 2018/2019 CAF Confederations Cup second leg.

Vipers progressed to the round of 32 with a walkover over Rusekere Growers from Fort Portal who failed to show up.

Kansai Plascon edged out premier league outfit Ndejje University 1-0 to book a slot at the round of 32.

A few changes are expected with a trip to Tunisia in mind of the tactician but advancement is still vital as the club seeks for its second ever cup.

Bobos Byaruhanga and Ibrahim Tembo could be handed their season debuts for the Venoms against Kansai Plascon.

The youthful pair being with impressive performances in training and Ouma is likely to give them a chance to play.

Rahmat Ssenfuka and Tom Masiko may also play after the former recovered from fever while the latter was an unused substitute against CS Sfaxien on Saturday.

Halid Lwaliwa and Aggrey Madoi are also back from shoulder and ankle injuries respectively meaning they will be available for selection.

Defender Bashir Asiku returned to training from an ankle problem he picked in last weekend’s match against CS Sfaxien but will undergo a late fitness test.
