NO coach would be looking forward to face a defending champion on his first soccer assignment, but new Vipers coach Edward Golola says that there is little to fear when his team hosts KCCA in Buikwe in Tuesday’s Super League action.
Golola, who replaced Nigerian Ambrose Duru Chukuma in interim capacity, insists all that matters is the players’ attitude and mental preparation, which he is trying to work upon.
Chukuma had his contract terminated over the weekend due to a string of poor results.
“There is no player with too much quality in our Ugandan league. All the players are average and what KCCA is better than us at this time is their winning mentality and that is what we have to get as Vipers,” said Golola who led Vipers to the 2009/10 league title.
Vipers, who lost to Kira Young 1-0 in their last league encounter on Friday, have now only managed 8 points from six league outings this season and Golola believes that the run has to be halted soon.
“We have good players and if we get the right attitude, then everything will be okay.”
But against KCCA, who have got the services of some of the top attackers in the country including Herman Wasswa, Tony Odur, Tom Matsiko and Brian Majwega, Vipers will have their work cut out.
SCVU will be looking to youngster Simon Okwi to keep their title chase alive when they face Kiira Young who look to be on a road to recovery while URA hosts Bright Stars in Lugazi in one of the many matches on card.
