KCCA FC Looks To Rejoin Title Race As It Hosts Vipers

During a top-of-the-table clash, KCCA FC will host Vipers FC later today at MTN Omondi stadium, Lugogo at 4 pm. However, KCCA will need to pick up the ‘W’ here if they are to keep hopes of winning the league this season alive.

The two sides are separated by a whopping nine points as Vipers sits at the top with 56 points. They still have 7 games left to play though.

With a win or a draw, the Venoms will surely end the race although mathematically, they will be required to gain more points.

Morley Byekwaso whose side has won just once in the past five games and drew their most recent game with Arua Hill at Lugogo believes playing at home give his side advantage.

“They are coming to our home and we need to make it very difficult for them here. We were close in the first leg and they snatched a point at the end of the game but that is in the past. They are table leaders and have a nine point gap; we know if we are to cut their lead then we have to win against them,” he said.

Marcelo Cardoso, the assistant to Roberto Oliviera at Vipers anticipates a tough clash. However, he played mind games saying it’s the Kasasiro under pressure to win.

“We have a strong match against KCCA FC tomorrow. Of course at this stage, they know how we play & we know their team too.” said assistant coach Marcelo Cardoso. 

In the club news;

The hosts are without injured Julius Poloto, Gift Ali and Patrick Kaddu in addition to long term casualties Geoffrey Wasswa, Emmanuel Wasswa and Brian Kayanja.

In return, they have Usama Arafat back in the squad after he missed the goalless draw with Arua Hill due to suspension.

Vipers are to miss the services of experienced Burundi custodian Fabien Mutombora with Derrick Kiggundu expected to step in.

Paul Willa is also out of the game but good news is that Sentamus Yunus and Siraje are available after limping off in their last outing at URA.
