The Venoms are aiming for a record third successive league title and come into this contest after a 2-1 win over UPDF FC.

For SC Villa who narrow missed out on the league title last season will be hoping for victory against the reigning champions to give them an advantage in this campaign’s title race. They were held by Busoga United 1-1 in their previous league game.

Victory for Vipers will see them move level on points with leaders Kitara while a win for the record Uganda Premier league champions SC Villa will see them move a point adrift of the top.

Last season, SC Villa prevailed over Vipers courtesy of a Charles Bbaale strike that sent the league to an explosive finish.

In the first round meeting this term both sides played out to a 1-1 stalemate at Kitende.
