The Venoms are second on the log with 50 points and two points adrift of leaders SC Villa.

If the Venoms are to retain the title on the final day, they will have to maximize points and pray Villa fail to beat URA FC.

Vipers will be without their key defender Hilary Mukundane and midfieder Abdul Karim Watambala due to card accumulation.
