Portuguese tactician Jorge Miguel Duarte has made one change from the starting eleven that won 1-0 in Kitende as they confront Platinum Stars in the CAF Confederation Cup.

The only change sees defender Aggrey Madoi take over from Dan Birikwalira who is relegated to the bench for the deciding tie against the Dikwena.

Madoi joins Halid Lwaliwa, Shafik Bakaki and skipper Nicholas Wadada as the back four with goalie Ismail Watenga playing between the sticks.

Versatile Deus Bukenya and the enterprising Moses Waiswa sit in front of the back four with Moses Nkuubi joining him in the middle.

Veteran Mike Sserumaga and forward Erisa Ssekisambu play wide in attack with Milton Karisa, scorer of the winner in the first leg leading the line.

The Venoms need to avoid defeat to make it to the next round although they can still qualify for the next round with a loss of one goal margin if they score.

Vipers XI:

Ismail Watenga (GK), Nicholas Wadada (C), Aggrey Madoi, Halid Lwaliwa, Shafik Bakaki, Deus Bukenya, Brian Nkuubi, Moses Waiswa, Milton Karisa, Mike Sserumaga and Erisa Sekisambu.
