Ticking away


On the home straight now.

Can we have a winner? If it comes - either way - it will be a huge three points. For now though, it's still balanced on the scoresheet.

Vantage point


These fellas had to pick the best spot to watch the duel from.

Meanwhile, we are a little over the halfway mark of the second half.

 Wafula cautioned



Vipers defender Innocent Wafula goes in the referee's book for what appears to be time wasting antics.

Careful.

KCCA back on level terms


It's a warm early evening here in Kampala. And things are hotting up on the StarTimes Stadium artificial turf.

It's Mike Mutyaba who tucks home for the hosts. And that came early after the interval - four minutes into the second half.

It's back to the business on the pitch as we look forward to another 45 minutes of football.

Remember that Halid Luwalira had to limp injured in the first half. He was replaced by Ibrahim Tembo.

As it stands, Vipers have moved to within one point adrift of KCCA at the summit of the log, thanks to Brian Nkuubi's 29th-minute strike.

If it stays like this, Mike Mutebi's side will remain on 52 points and the Venoms will be on 51 points - with five games remaining until the end of the season.

KCCA trailing


This is as tasty as it can get. If the visitors can just hang on here.

But there is still a lot of time to the 90th-minute mark. Can we see more from this encounter?
