Isabirye out for revenge as Express host Vipers

Alex Isabirye will be in the spotlight when his Express FC takes on his former paymasters Vipers SC at Muteesa II Stadium in Wankulukuku on Saturday.

Isabirye won a Cup double with Vipers last season before he was replaced by Brazilian tactician Leonard Martins Neiva.

Neiva was however sacked last week after suffering a 3-2 defeat at home to leaders BUL FC.

The Venoms come into this contest with Richard Wasswa, Baker Kasule and Daniel Male in charge as the search for a permanent coach continues.

Ibrahim Mugisha (Goalkeeping coach) and Lukusa Kayembe Raoul ( assistant coach) also left their roles at Vipers.

Meanwhile, Erick Kenzo Kambale will be returning to Wankulukuku where he played a pivotal role for the Red Eagles as they clinched a league title and CECAFA Club Cup in 2021.

Isabirye’s side will be boosted by the 5-2 win over NEC FC in their previous game. They are currently 9th on the table with 16 points.

Express are yet to win at home since their 1-0 victory over Bright Stars in October.

Vipers on the other hand are currently third on the log with 24 points and eight points adrift of leaders BUL FC.
