Uganda Revenue Authority Football Club (URA FC) are supposed to be team contending for the 2018/2019 StarTimes Uganda Premier League championship because of their status and funding.
But for some reason URA are languishing in ninth position, nine points behind table leaders KCCA FC. Although that’s not the story as they host Tooro United at Mandela National Stadium in one of the two league ties on the menu.
URA have not neither scored or won a game in their last five outings, but have also lost one, in the barren draws against Police FC and Nyamityobora Said Kyeyune and Shafik Kagimu both missed from 12 yards respectively.
Actually in eight outings URA have only tasted victory twice, in their opener against Paidha Black Angels (2-0) and Ndejje Lions (1-0).
With the one all draw with Maroons joining the earlier two as the only three times they have managed to score a goal. The Luzira based side happens to be the first and last side to find the back of the net against URA.
It’s that form that Sam Ssimbwa’s side come with for their tie against 12th placed but also troubled Tooro United side.
The Buhinga based side have only won once in their eight outings this season, that was against BUL (0-1) at the Njeru Technical center.
They have lost to KCCA (2-1), Express (2-0) and Police (2-1) with their outing ending in a two all draw against SC Villa.
That makes the Tuesday tie one to kill for both sets of players but the higher pressure and demands to deliver are without a doubt on URA.
Because anything short of victory might see them sink further especially if Kirinya Jinja SS can pick maximum points off Ndejje Lions in the other tie to be played in Luwero
