Vipers pray that a football Volcano does not erupt as they play away to Comoros side, Club Volcan. The return leg hosts have a home advantage going into the game tomorrow.

Vipers are into a risky state having played to a barren draw in Kampala in the CAF Confederation’s Cup first leg.

After arriving in Comoros last evening, the Vipers contingent were received to a stern warning in Comoros’ capital Moroni by the host club President and owner Mr Sahil Ibrahim.

He warned the visitors against his ready team and assured them how his boys are ready to attack and ensure they eliminate the Uganda CAF confederation cup representatives from the competition.

But Vipers are not also unfazed by the opponents’ home advantage.

Truth be told, Vipers, who at the back of their minds know the resistance ahead of tomorrow’s game, must change their game approach and attempt to unlock the Venoms solid defense though this looks not an easy task.

Vipers head coach Richard Wasswa is aware that its only scoring early goals and defending well that will make the difference and see his side progress to the next level.

“We have done lots of homework, polishing and tying up the loose ends. We have to create and convert our chances into goals and defend well, that is our main purpose in Comoros,” Wasswa said.

Vipers aim should be a win tomorrow at the return leg against Volcan De Moroni on the Comoros Island.

Before they left, head coach Richard Wasswa made two inclusions in his squad; Brian Nkuubi and towering forward Alfred Leku who have been impressive in the past few days.

The victor side will progress to the next round where they will meet either Platinum Stars of South Africa or Mozambique’s Uniao do Songo.
