KCCA FC manager Mike Hillary Mutebi has said that Tuesday’s UPL game against Vipers is not a title decider.

Leaders Vipers will play host to KCCA FC in what promises to be a pulsating affair at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

KCCA FC (44) occupy second place, with five points adrift of table toppers Vipers (49) with a loss to Mutebi will leave the visitors trail eight points after 22 games.

“No,” Mutebi said in a loud voice, when asked if game against Vipers is a title decider. “Its just a normal game like any other. Yes, they are our title competitors but there are still more games which will shape the league.”

“The game will obviously put something into the equation, Vipers have the objective of winning the league and we also want to defend our title. But there is nothing more special about it.”

Mutebi stressed that the clash brings together two teams with the best players in the league and fans should expect a game that is worth waiting for.

KCCA FC won the reverse fixture 1-0, courtesy of Muzamir Mutyaba strike, at Lugogo last year.

On his chances of completing a double against his rivals and improve their title defence chances, Mutebi said:

“We have the responsibility, ability and enough in our armoury to pick a good result to further our ambition of winning the league.

“We have the capacity to go there and win because I have good players who have a winning mentality. They are at home but we will go with the same mentality.”

On what he expects from the opponents, Mutebi revealed that he is not in any way scared about the Venoms despite their star studded squad.

“I don’t know what is their style of play, they haven’t been an attacking team even before Fred (Kajoba) came. I am not worried about them, I must perfect our ways of play and its them to worry about us.”
