Sam Ssimbwa admits that URA had to find solutions against tough BUL FC and that they deserved credit for their performance despite a 2-0 defeat at the Kyabazinga Stadium on Tuesday.
Steven Mukwala and Joachim Ojera combined for two late goals as the Tax Collectors registered their second consecutive victory in the league.
“They (BUL) deserve credit because they gave us a good game,” Ssimbwa said, adding; “But I am proud of the boys because they played well despite the fact that our opponents had prepared well.”
“To the public, it means we are a stable team unlike people who are not sure of where the club is,” he added.
With both teams adopting a cautious approach, chances were few and far between in the first half as it ended goalless.
Ssimbwa’s side struggled to find their rhythm going forward with BUL creating the better opportunities in the first half as URA’s display was again characterised by defensive display.
“I felt in the midfield, they were better than us and that is why I introduced two wide players to give us more width and support the strikers up front,” he said.
“At first we were only effective through Ojera’s wing and that rendered our strikers upfront ineffective, but we changed shape and played with a single striker and we solved the problem.”
“I am proud of the boys, but this win means nothing because we want to mean as many games as possible,” he continued.
URA climbs to fourth position on the table with eight points from two wins and two draws, while BUL FC fall to ninth place on four points.
Ssimbwa takes his URA side to face his former club KCCA FC on Friday at the MTN Omondi Stadium, while BUL visits Kyetume on Sunday, December 20.
