The fans and club’s hierarchy have a lot of confidence that their side can go ahead and defend the StarTimes Uganda Premier League, the orchestrator in Michael Nam Ouma thinks otherwise.

Vipers trail table leaders KCCA FC by four points, they had an opportunity to close that gap when they met on Thursday at Lugogo, the game ended in a barren draw.

“Am not a prophet of doom about Vipers FC winning the league, but the team has that winning attitude,” Ouma said in the post-match press conference.

“Right now the target is to win all our remaining game and see what happens, but I can’t say we shall be champions in May,” he later told www.football-256.com.

In the game, Vipers lost defender Halid Lwaliwa in the 10th minute who suffered a hamstring in the 10th minute, he was replaced by Ibrahim Tembo, and something Ouma believes affected their game plan.

“Halid’s early injury affected our game plan. Our target today was to win the match and earning a point away is a point-plus to the team.”

Brian Nkuubi scored for the Venoms in the 28th minute of the game before Mike Mutyaba brought matters to level terms in the 49th minute.

The result left KCCA FC on top of the league table on 53 points with a difference of four points away from the second-placed Vipers who have 49.
