#URAFC’s opening home game of the 2020/2021 season didn’t go according to plan as we agonizingly lost two points in a tightly contested but yet offensively-dull game against Solitilo Bright Stars.
The Arena of Visions in Ndejje (as did the second half of the just concluded 2019/2020 season) played host to this hugely anticipated first home fixture. 
It is fair to mention that the atmosphere and climate at the pitch good enough to favourite commencement of the game which was of course augmented by the perfect weather conditions.

The gaffer made three changes to the side that started against Mbarara City FC at the Kakyeka Stadium in our last outing.
Brian Majwega, Hudu Mulikyi and Mutyaba Julius replaced Galiwango Ashraf, Katongole Faruk and skipper Kagimu Shafik respectively. With Majwega on pitch, this was with respect a very offensive setup from the gaffer.
The technical team was looking to reminiscence the 1-0 win in the previous season against the same opponents. Unfortunately, the then hero Cromwel Rwothomio wasn’t on pitch to deliver. 

Majwega made his first start of the season for URA FC today.

In the URA FC perspective though, it wasn’t the desired start our fans had anticipated. It was a physical game with respect to the opponent that the team struggled to create chances.
This revelation is true since we only managed to create two clear chances in the first half of the game with both being half chances. One from Ivan Sserubiri in the first 10minutes and another by Micheal Birungi in minute 36.

Sserubiri Ivan bossed the midfield.

This climaxed our slow start to the game despite dominating possession. We should have been more proactive. Expectant of a better second half, Sam Simbwa sent his troops back for the second half, we created a couple of chances for Steven Mukwala but all not good enough.
With respect, it was a decimal performance in the second half for both sides. The gaffer made changes to effect the game with the likes of Ssenyonga Mikidadi, Seruyidde Moses and Kigongo Ronald but all in vain.
