KCC FC misses a chance to go top of the Azam Uganda premier league table as two own goals from goalkeeper Yasin Mugabi and defender Joseph Ochaya gifted high flying Vippers’ FC the points in the first half of the match.
The frustration of today’s evening to KCCA players is still clearly seen on the faces of Ochaya and Mugabi. Losing to the Vippers’ resulted into KCC’s side dropping to the third place and the visitors moving into spot ahead of all other teams in the league.
KCCA defender Joseph Ochaya reacted after conceding the second own goal during the match at Phillip Omondi pitch home of KCCA. He tried to attack the opponents to clear his mistakes bit all in vein.
The loss leaves KCCA facing up to the probability of having to take the play-off path with their three top places already confirmed. Ochaya, who had bombed forward to join his outfield teammates in trying to force late equalizers against vipers, was determined to remain upbeat about his team’s promotion prospects though.
“There are more positives than negatives to take out of the match and like I said, we have given our selves every chance, if we had won this match, we would be toping the table. Unfortunately that didn’t happen, but we still have other games to play. We need to win those games and see what else happens. Football is a funny game, anything can happen”, said Ochaya.
The hosts were more frustrated by the persistent time wasting by Vippers’ goal keeper, James Alitho which led to awarding him a yellow card.
Vipper’s coach Golola admitted his joy for frustrating his opponents saying: “It is obviously frustrating for both KCCA players and fans but they shouldn’t forget that it is a game where there is always a winner and loser.
Vippers FC now tops the Azam Uganda Premier league table with 56 points followed by Sc villa 54 points and then KCCA in the third place with 52 points.
