Thursday
 
KCCA v Vipers
 
Vipers have been boosted by the return of defender Livingstone Mulondo who has been nursing an injury he sustained two months ago.
 
Mulondo who featured in Vipers 6-0 victory over Econ Soccer Academy at St Mary’s stadium in a friendly match returns as the Venoms travel to Lugogo to take on table leaders KCCA.
 
The former Kirinya Jinja player gives coach Michael Nam Ouma more options in central defence since Henry Katongole, Ibrahim Tembo and Halid Lwaliwa are also available for selection.
 
“I feel great to be back and in time to help my team. Since I got injured, it’s been a time of mixed results but the boys have given their best to keep the momentum and pressure upon the table leader. I believe I can play a big part in the remaining few games if am selected by the coaches,” Mulondo said.
 
Meanwhile, goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora and right back Karim Niyigizimana who have been away for national duties also resumed training with the team.
 
Mutombora was part of Burundi's U-23 side that was eliminated by Congo in the third round of the CAF U-23 Olympics qualifiers, while Niyigizimana guided the Burundi senior team to the AFCON 2019 finals.
 
“We are set for Thursday. Time to celebrate qualifying for AFCON is over. We need to fight and get back to the top and that’s why l came back early from National duty,” noted Niyigizimana.
