UPL I came to KCCA to win the title, Mayanja brags after slim win in Jinja

The win over Gaddafi pushes KCCA to two points from the top of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League table with two games at hand.

Jackson ‘Mia Mia’ Mayanja is still buoyant that his KCCA FC will win the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

Julius Poloto stubbed in the lone winner after 73 minutes of searching.

Gaddafi’s custodian Joel Mutakubwa had done well to punch away Allan Okello’s dangerous corner but midfielder Saidi Mayanja headed it back into the danger zone.

Poloto calmly controlled it, turned and fired it past three green shirts for the winner.

“As I said, I have come here to take this cup. I want to knock one by one because it is very important to win every game that is remaining if we want to win the championship. I always want to win,” Mayanja, the KCCA FC head coach thumped his chest.

The Kasasiro Boys are second on the league table with 44 points, two behind SC Villa but have two games at hand.

Mayanja has urged his boys to up their game and win all the remaining games to lift the title.

“It was seven but one down, remaining six and if we can do this for the next three games then, we’ll have a picture of where we’re heading.

“There’s a tactic that we’re using and you can see there’s something we’re playing,” the former KCC star added.
