Vipers SC will be seeking to close the gap on leaders Kitara FC when they host UPDF FC under the floodlights of Kitende on Friday.

The Venoms come into this game back of a 2-0 win over URA FC in their previous game.

They prevailed over URA FC without their head coach Livingstone Mbabazi who had requested for permission to attend the burial of his family member.

He is however expected to return to the dugout when they face the Army side.

Vipers have also played three games less than leaders Kitara FC.

UPDF FC on the other hand are in the Red zone and two points adrift of the drop.

The game will see UPDF assistant coach Paul Kiwanuka return to Kitende where he served as Fred Kajoba’s assistant at Vipers.
