SC Villa centre forward Emmanuel Okwi admits title race is out of their hands but they says they won’t give up until it’s mathematically impossible.
The Jogoos, second on the log but with same points as leaders KCCA missed chance to regain summit with a 1-1 draw with their rivals, who hold a three game advantage in hand.
“It’s now officially out of our hands,” said Okwi. “But we can only give up when it’s mathematically impossible,” he warned.
The Jogoo young product scored from 12 yards at Masaka to cancel out Geoffrey Sserunkuma’s goal for his 9th goal of the season also rued missed opportunities against the Kasasiro.
I don’t want to say it but maybe we were unlucky. We controlled the game for most parts of it, created chances but failed to utilize them which haunted us. In the end, the game could have gone either way since they also had some good chances.
For the record league winners to win the title, KCCA must falter in their remaining fixtures and then the Jogoos win their remaining games and Okwi hopes it happens.
We hope they falter but for now, we have to win our games.
SC Villa’s remaining games are against Police (h), Soana (a), Vipers (h) and URA (h).
