KCC 90 Minutes From First Double

KCC beat Sports Club Victoria University (SCVU) 2-1 on Friday and held onto a goalless draw in the return leg on Sunday needing to progress to the 2014 final of the Uganda Cup and stay on-course for their first league double.KCC

Defending champions SCVU needed a 1-0 victory or a win by a two-goal margin to qualify for the final for the second successive year but KCC stuck on their nerve and avoided losing in a very tightly contest encounter at Namboole Stadium.

“They (players) did the job today (Friday) and I trusted them to deliver again which they did today,” he said after the draw.

Nsimbe’s team retained the trophy on Tuesday with 60 points on the log after a 3-1 victory over arch-rivals SC Villa in a decisive match played at the Philip Omondi Stadium Lugogo while SC Victoria University came second with 59 points.

KCC will likely face Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) in the final after the tax collectors defeated Big League side Jinja Municipal Council (JMC) 4-0 in the first leg.

An Ali Feni brace and two other goals from Saidi Kyeyune and Robert Sentongo were enough for URA against the lowly side and finish the job on Tuesday.

The final match of the 2014 Uganda Cup will be played at the Mbale Municipal Stadium.

The winner of the Uganda Cup represents the country at the CAF Confederations cup next season.
