Vipers SC coach Miguel Duarte (R) has rallied his players to fight for the title.
With 24 games played and six to go, the standings atop the league table present a tough picture of how highly-contested this season has been.
For a neutral, the current state of affairs is ideal. But Vipers coach Miguel Duarte Da Costa vows it is a do-or-die title race, beginning this Friday.
“We are ready for KCCA. And we shall do everything in our power to beat them. That will get us closer to our objective, set at the beginning of this season, which is to win the league,” he said.
He added: “We have to keep winning until the last day, to be champions.” Vipers face KCCA on the back of a morale-boosting 1-0 win over Villa last week.
Being the first team to beat the Jogoos on home turf in Masaka, since they returned there last season, Da Costa said, this has lifted their spirits. He points to how it was a good reward for the hardwork they have been putting in this season, and the belief they have as a team.
Therefore, Vipers take on KCCA fired up. But Da Costa is not about to get carried away by the second round form, especially at home. He recognizes that KCCA is a good side, which beat them 3-1 in the first round. And because of that, he insisted they must approach this game with the utmost of toughness to win.
