URA FC will officially start life under new head coach David Obua with a home game against Kitara FC this evening in the Startimes Uganda Premier League as Match day 7 continues.
The Tax Collectors will be aiming at returning to winning ways after being condemned to their first season loss against Bul FC in the previous encounter at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.
Skipper Enock Walusimbi returns from suspension and so are forwards Bruno Bunyaga and Ibrahim Dada after recovering from injuries.
Youngsters Justin Opiro, Amis Bwangani and Godfrey Sekibengo are not available due to school engagements at St. Mary’s Kitende SS and St. Henry’s College Kitovu respectively.
David Obua (Head Coach)
“I have been with the lads for five days and they have responded well. The mood is good and I want to start off my journey here on a winning note. We know Kitara FC well and we have prepared for them. Being home will also be a big boost for us.”
Enock Walusimbi (Skipper)
“I am happy to be back from suspension. It’s a big game for us against a side that is in fine form but we have worked out through the week with our new coach and now set for the task at hand. We lost our previous tie so this win will help us get out confidence back as well as closing the gap on the teams above us.”
Head To Head.
It will be the second time both teams will be squaring off, with the first one coming in 2021 in Hoima were URA FC won 2-3 before the return leg in the second half was cancelled due to COVID-19 then.
Currently on the log, URA FC sit 7th on 9 points from 6 games and will be aiming at continuing with their home winning run following their previous 1-0 victory against Wakiso Giants FC.
On the other hand, the Royals whose unbeaten run was ended by Maroons FC in their own backyard in their previous match sit in 2nd place on 15 points from 6 games.
