All KCCA FC need is one point to seal a 13th league title, a fifth in seven seasons. They visit Ndejje Lions on Tuesday, a relegation candidate, whose one chance to for survival is suspending KCCA FC’s title aspirations.
Currently on 25 points, Ndejje will be looking at picking three points, that would take them to 28 points, but far from being safe because their direct competitors in the race to survive relegation are SC Villa.
Villa will be visiting Maroons, which makes Ndejje’s work harder than they thought since their goal difference doesn’t also help matter.
But all that won’t matter to Mike Mutebi and his KCCA FC side, they are desperate to seal the title early enough.
“We are not going to Ndejje for formality, we are going there to win the match,” Mutebi told www.football-256.com before adding.
“We haven’t won the title, so we have a game to play and we want to win it to also collect more points on the log.”
Ndejje has won three of their last five home games, lost once and drew the same number, while KCCA FC have won twice and drew three in their last away matches.
“They are playing for points to win a title, we need points to survive relegation, we need to give our best because I think we are in a more needing position than them,” Ndejje’s coach Raymond Komakech told this website.
When the two sides met in the first round of the season at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo in December last year, KCCA edged Ndejje with a 3-1 victory.
The log leaders on 59 points can also rely on Police FC who will be hosting Vipers SC at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo, Vipers’ failure to register maximum points would guarantee KCCA FC the title regardless of the result in Luwero.
