- KCCA have three games in hand over rivals SC Villa
- But are on top of the standings with 48 points, same as the Jogoos
Despite his side drawing 1-1 with rivals SC Villa to stay top of the log with 48 points and three games in hand, KCCA Coach Mike Mutebi believes the title race is far from finished.
Geoffrey Sserunkuma scored for the visitors at Masaka Recreation Ground but Emmanuel Okwi levelled for the hosts in front of a big crowd as the two teams played to a 1-1 draw in a match many dub the title decider.
“For us, it’s a point won,” said Mutebi. “Although we have games in hand, I don’t think the title race is over. There are tough games in front of us and games in hand are never points won,” he added.
Among KCCA’s three games in hand is the home tie against Vipers on Tuesday and an away fixture to Express on Friday the same week.
The soft spoken gaffer praised the beautiful football displayed by both teams although the pitch wasn’t the best to suit either due to heavy downpour that left some parts flooded.
I think it was an entertaining game. Two ball playing sides trying to play some beautiful football and only limited by the surface.
On any other day, KCCA would have earned a penalty when Muzamiru Mutyaba was brought down in the area by Paul Mbowa but also would have conceded three at the other end.
This left a section of SC Villa fans fuming at referee Brian Nsubuga for mishandling the game but Mutebi said the officiating was top class.
I think the refereeing was top class from my point of view.
