By Football256 Team

URA FC will be looking at getting maximum points when they host Kirinya Jinja SSS FC in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Thursday at Mandela National Stadium Namboole.

The tax collectors have failed to get a win in their last three matches after their 1-0 home loss to Maroons and the goalless stalemate with Onduparaka in Arua.

When they thought they would bounce back, the Sam Ssimbwa coached side were also knocked out of Stanbic Uganda Cup at by round of 16 by Bright Stars.

“Of course we are not happy with the results, especially the one against Bright Stars but we are ready to fight and ready to give our best as players for our next game against Kirinya Jinja SSS FC,” URA midfielder Charles Sempa said on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Kirinya Jinja SSS are hoping to build on their 1-0 win over Police FC in their last league outing, they seem to have moved on after the departure of Charles Ayiekoh.

“It’s going to be a tough game since URA has just lost in Uganda Cup, my players are so motivated by our win against Police,” coach Abbey Bogere Kikomeko told www.football256.com before adding.

“Much as we are going to play at Namboole, it’s like a neutral ground where the best wins, we are ready and we need those points,” he added.

In the last five games played between the two sides, each one has managed one win and three draws have been recorded.

URA FC is currently in fifth on the 16 team log with 29 points, Kirinya are 11th with 24 points after 19 outings.
