Uganda league draws to exciting closeBy ANDREW MWANGUHYA | Monday, June 4 2012 at 16:51
Last Friday provided the drama to the Uganda football league title race that all neutrals desire, thanks to Simba.
A Swalley Sonko first half strike might have as well had a major say in this year’s Bell Super League title as Simba edged log leaders URA 1-0 to allow Bunnamwaya, who thumped Police 5-0, breathe in hard on the tax collectors nape.
Simba’s victory at Bombo set up one of the most exciting run-ins. It left URA not only with Express to contend with, but with Bunnamwaya as well.
Alex Isabirye’s reigning champions lead the two by just a point, with Edward Golola’s Bunnamwaya and Sam Ssimbwa’s Express all on 53 points.
And now with just two games left, all the three are in action tomorrow knowing that any slip-up will be paid for heavily.
URA host Maroons at Lugazi while Bunnamwaya take the tricky trip to Express’ Wankulukuku where each must win to stay their chances.
Unfortunately for them they all can’t win, unless they share spoils and URA lose to Maroons.
All the three have their work cut out, with Bunnamwaya having a tougher final two games.
After tomorrow’s duel at Wankulukuku, the 2010 champions host URA on the final day on Sunday, at the same time Express will be facing Bidco away.
However, each of the trio have one of their last two games at home and away. The math is simple. Any of them will win the title by winning all their remaining two games.
