Vipers coach Fred Kajoba says the performance of his team must improve in a bid to win the StarTimes Uganda Premier League title this season.

Kajoba made the remarks ahead of the team’s game against BUL due in Jinja today.

The Kitende-based side that last won the league in the 2017-2018 season, beat Onduparaka 1-0 in their previous game but were not at their usual best.

Kajoba, who took over at the club recently, acknowledged that his players were not up to the grade against Onduparaka.

“We have to improve our game and the players must be mentally prepared. We also need to score more goals,” he said.

“Everybody who goes to play BUL in Njeru knows that it will be a difficult game. That’s why we want to focus on being at our best because BUL is a game where you want to take the points but you have to fight to get them."

Vipers are looking to securing maximum points to stretch their lead at the summit. Victory today will steer them five points clear.

It will ease them of the pressure mounted by defending champions KCCA, who are in second and two points behind.

BUL are sixth on 30 points.

It has been a poor start to the second round for the Njeru side, who have lost four of their last five games.

There is growing expectation at the club that head coach Arthur Kyesimira, who was recently appointed after the sacking of Peter Onen, will help turn the tables around at BUL.
