URA need a draw to wrap-up title

THE Uganda Super League officials have insisted that the Super League title decider match between URA and KCC at Nakivubo tomorrow will not be postponed, but promised that there will not be any complacency even if KCC still has two matches to play.

URA needs a draw in their last season match to be declared champions, while KCC needs to win the encounter and the next two and scoring over 11 goals in the three games if they are to lift this yearís title. Fans are scared that the last two matches can be fixed for KCC to get the needed results.

But according to league manager Paul Kabaikaramu, they cannot afford to postpone the league any further as the absence of playing facilities still dictated on their programme.

"We are not postponing that match. We understand all the points raised but bear with us.

"The next two clubs that KCC is going to play are also fighting relegation so they will not be compromised," said Kabaikaramu, who insisted that in case the match is postponed, it means that it will be played after July 6, which is quite late.

URA coach Alex Isabirye said that it was unfair, but this will not change their focus as they look at sealing the league title in the match at Nakivubo.

"What we want is to avoid relying on other clubs, we need a point from the match and all our focus is to lift the title and we will do that," said Isabirye, who added that they have postponed most of their matches but how comes KCC still has more unplayed matches than them.

Meanwhile, the league action continues today with SC Villa, reported to have entered a multi-billion partnership with Arab side Al Wasl last week, taking on Masaka LC at Wankulukuku.

Assistant team manager Paul Mukatabala said the announcement has boosted the teamís morale.

"The morale is high, even before the partnership with Al Wasl was announced. We want to end the season in style and we donít have serious injuries, the fans should expect a good game," he said.

On Friday, Sheik Sowaid Sultan Hamid, an executive member of United Arab Emirates top club Al Wasl discussed a likely partnership with club president Fred Muwema that will see the Dubai based club invest massively in Villa.

At Nakivubo, Proline hosts Police with either side targeting a win to finish in a descent position.
