Vipers Sports Club head coach Michael Ouma has decided to apply a reserved approach when they face CS Sfaxien on Sunday night as he looks to steer the team to the group stages of the CAF Confederations Cup for the first time.
The coach has opted to deploy Tadeo Lwanga and Geoffrey Wasswa deep in his midfield as they aim to provide cover for their back-four.
Burundian goalkeeper Fabian Mutombora starts in goal with Halid Lwaliwa and Livingstone Mulondo shielding him. Lwaliwa missed the first leg due to an injury.
Ibrahim Kiyemba and Aggrey Madoi will operate on the wing backs as Moses Waiswa ensures smooth transition of the ball to the final third.
Tito Okello, Dan Sserunkuuma and Abraham Ndugwa have been tasked to locate the opponent's nets.
The play off return leg fixture will take place at the Tareb Mhiri stadium in Sfax, Tunisia.
Vipers XI: Fabian Mutombora; Ibrahim Kiyemba, Aggrey Madoi, Livingstone Mulondo, Halid Lwaliwa, Tadeo Lwanga, Geoffrey Wasswa, Moses Waiswa, Tito Okello, Dan Sserunkuuma, Abraham Ndugwa.
Substitutes: Derrick Ochan, Bashir Asiku, Tom Masiko, Duncan Sseninde, Brian Nkuubi, Steven Mukwala.
