Vipers extended their lead in the StarTimes Uganda Premier league despite playing to the goalless draw with Onduparaka away at Green Light stadium in Arua. The Venoms are now top with 21 points, two above BUL who were not in action.
 
Onduparaka are fourth with 16 points. Onduparaka who were lucky not to concede have to be thankful to their goalkeeper Yusuf Wasswa who made several saves to deny Vipers a goal.
 
Ashraf Mugume and striker and lead scorer Fahad Bayo are some of Vipers players who failed to beat Wasswa. Vipers who are also the only side in the league that are unbeaten saw their barren run against Onduparaka in Arua extended to four games. 
 
In fact, in all the four games both sides have met in Arua, Onduparaka has managed to win one match (1-0) but the rest of the three games have ended in goalless draws. 
 
Onduparaka on any day should have also walked away with a goal if Ceaser Okhuti, Gasper Adriko, and Vitalis Tabu didn't miss their scoring opportunities. Tabu's freekick was saved by Vipers goalkeeper Fabien Mutombora while Adriko's shot hit the crossbar. 
 
The weekend game was Onduparaka's third consecutive game without a win but they feel this has come because of not being effective in front of the goal.   
 
The league will resume next week on Tuesday with several games on  card. League Champions KCCA have not in action due to their engagement in the CAF Confederation Cup.
