The Star Times Uganda Premier match day eight ended yesterday 9th October, 2019 with three fixtures. Vipers were on the road to Police FC but had to fight from a goal down to win 3:1 against an Abdullah Mubiru side. 

The cops were in the lead by the 27th minute scoring through "prodigal son" Hood Kaweesa but the Venoms equalized through former Police FC right back Paul Willa in the 42nd minute before Captain Halid Lwaliwa put Vipers in the lead before referee called it for break. 

Young star Karim Watambala put the icing on the cake 10 minutes to full time to claim his maiden League goal after being promoted to the senior team at the start of the season.

It was their second successive win following a run of two matches without one and now stands fourth on the table on 14 points, with 4 wins and two draws.  The Venoms are the only side yet to lose a league match this season. Police FC midfielder Yousouf Ssozi was named the man of the match. 

The match was the 29th between the two sides with Vipers winning 14, losing 7 and drawing 8 times.

Timothy Oyamo replaced Johnson Odongo for the cops as Vipers brought on Frank Tumwesigye, Brian Kalumba and Abraham Nduggwa for Dan Sserunkuuma, Allan Kayiwa and Karim Watambala respectively.

Vipers' next task is against on-form Express FC on Saturday 12th October, 2019 at St. Mary's Stadium whilst Police FC will have a trip to Jinja for a duel against Busoga United on the same day.
