Gaddafi paused Vipers’ chase in the title race after holding them in a goalless encounter in the Uganda Premier League at St Mary Stadium, Kitende on Thursday.

The defending champions failed to close the gap on log leaders BUL after putting to waste a number of chances in front of goal.

Gaddafi head coach David Mutono told the press that if his troops had taken their chances, they would have easily beaten Vipers.

“We did not take away our chances and that is not good if you want to win games. However, we shall go back and improve our final third,” he said.

“It is not easy to come to Kitende and put up such a sprited fight. I am proud of the boys and I will keep supporting and motivating them to do better,” he added.

The Soldier Boys kept patient throughout the club keeping their goal area safe from danger. Even after Vipers threw several bodies upfront, the Visitors hardly lost their shape.

Mutono added that they are building a playing culture that will help them improve and become more competitive going forward.

“We are building a team. I know it will take time to bear fruit but we want to have a team culture that defines who we are and how we play,” he concluded.

With the stalemate, Gaddafi lie 13th on the log with 17 points collected from 17 games played thus far.

Gaddafi will return to action on Thursday, February 29 as they take on neighbours Busoga United in the Jinja Derby.
