History shows that the outcome of such games can make a big difference when the points are tallied at the end and the result could decide the title race.

KAMPALA – It is the battle of the top two as leaders Vipers take on reigning champions KCCA in Kitende Tuesday in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
With five points separating the two sides, and nine games left to the end of the season, any result from this fixture will be very telling in the quest for the title.
Vipers are at the dizzying summit of the table on 49 points while KCCA’s 2-1 over Maroons two weeks ago helped them close in on the Venoms.
Victory at St. Mary’s Stadium will bring Mike Mutebi’s side to within breathing distance of the three-time league champions.
But if the three points fall to the hosts, title-chasing Vipers will open up an eight-point gap at the top, meaning they would only need to win seven of their remaining nine games to clinch a fourth title.
Will Fred Kajoba’s boys see this one out?
“This is a big game. We need to handle it with a lot of care,” he said ahead of the game.
“We just need to improve on our effectiveness in front of goal since we create a lot of chances. This is the best opportunity we have to prove that we deserve to win the title.”
