In his Sunday luncheon with the squad and the technical team, Vipers SC director Dr. Lawrence Mulindwa showered midfielder Abdul-Karim Watambala with praises for his competitive spirit at the club.
On the other hand, Kumi University's slim chances of progress lie with a win in Mukono and will stay with anything short of that.
