Vipers host KCCA in a title decisive match

Must read

The title race in the Azam Uganda Premier League is going down to the wire with Vipers SC, KCCA and SC Villa Jogoo all having a chance to win this season’s title with only five games left to play.

All eyes will be in Kitende tomorrow afternoon when SC Vipers host defending champions KCCA in a highly-billed Uganda Premier League encounter.

Vipers will place their trust in Dan Sserunkuma and Milton Karisa to carry their scoring boots as they host a well-organised and on-form KCCA who will look up to the league’s top scorer Muhammad Shaban (10 goals).

Currently KCCA are 3rd, one point behind leaders Vipers, who are level with second placed SC Villa Jogoo but lead on goal difference.

A win could see the ‘Kasasiro Boys’ open a two point lead at the top of the table while Vipers will be looking to extend their lead to three and four points ahead of SC Villa and KCCA, respectively.

KCCA come into this game with brilliant form after defeating URA 7-2 in Lugogo on Tuesday while the Venoms defeated relegation candidates Masavu 3-1.

The first leg in Lugogo ended in a 3-1 victory for Mike Mutebi’s side. Muhammad Shaban scored a brace for KCCA while Derrick Nsibambi scored the other. Yayo Lutimba scored the Venoms’ consolation goal of the day.

KCCA have won just one of their last seven Premier League meetings with Vipers (W1 D3 L3). There has only been one goalless draw between the two sides in the previous 14 league meetings.

Other title contenders SC Villa will be in action on Saturday, away to Mbarara as they seek to end their 14-year title drought.

The Jogoos could be leaders but were docked two points earlier in the season for the fans violence against Vipers at St. Mary’s Stadium.
