URA, Express face off as league resumes

By Peter Tabu

URA host Express this Tuesday in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at Namboole with an aim of ending the winless streak against their visitors.

The Tax collectors are winless against the Red Eagles in the past seven meetings losing twice and drawing the rest.

Sam Ssimbwa’s side will hope to better their last outing, a 1-1 draw with BUL and he believes the team has prepared for the better.

“The boys have prepared and are ready to fight,” Ssimbwa told www.football-256.com before adding. 

“We picked up lessons from the Bul game and we shall build from that. Centre back Patrick Mbowa misses out due to injury but we already have a replacement.” 

With a 10 point difference separating the two sides, Express are hoping to build on their cup triumph over BUL before the international break.

Midfielder Ibra Kayiwa didn’t mince his words about how the team is prepared.

“We are so ready because we have spent the last two weeks working hard, am positive we shall have a good game,” Kayiwa told the club website.

“We have had several friendly games preparing us so I am certain we shall win.” 

Fourth-placed URA, are hoping the win will place them in third spot a point ahead of Mbarara City while a win for Express will take them to ninth place with Police although the Kops have a superior goal difference.
