URA FC have conceded in all four games they have played in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League so far and it is their major concern at the moment, given that they have scored enough.

The Tax Collectors have let in seven goals compared to their 13 scored and while speaking after his side’s 6-1 victory over Tooro United on Tuesday, assistant coach Simeon Massa argued the Taxmen to improve in defence.

“There is still some reluctancy, most especially in defence which cost us in the previous two games, the players become too comfortable whenever we are leading,” Maasa told the club media before adding.

“Against Tooro, we have scored more goals which is good but it is not pleasing that we again conceded, meaning if we had fewer goals, it would have been easy for the opponents to come back into the game.”

“We have to try hard and keep improving in defence and stop conceding goals anyhow, ” he added.

Steven Mukwala bagged a quadruple while the other two were scored by Cromwell Rwothomio and Joachim Ojera.

“We are generally doing well in terms of scoring goals but Mukwala and Rwothomio are doing a great job because finding the back of the net is becoming part of them.”

“I am also glad that we not relying on only the two of them, goals are coming from different players,” Massa noted.

Mukwala is currently the league’s top scorer with five goals while Rwothomio is tied with Vipers’ Yunus Sentamu and Wakiso Giant’s Titus Ssematimba on four.

They are positioned ninth on the 16 team SUPL log with seven points, but with two games in hand and shall return to action on Saturday, November 27 when they visit Vipers.
