Blacks Power FC vs URA FC – 4PM @Akiibua Stadium.
URA FC makes a long trip to Lira on Wednesday to play against Blacks Power FC in the Startimes Uganda Premier League at Akiibua Stadium in what will also be their first game in the new month of May.
The Tax Collectors will be aiming at getting back to winning ways following two previous games without victory.
Vianey Sekajugo, Hassan Kalega and Sande Andabati have been included in the traveling team to Lira while Derrick Ndahiro (suspension due to accumulation of three yellow cards) Hannington Ssebwalunyo (Recovering from fever) Salim Abdallah (AWOL) and Justine Opiro (At School engagement) won’t be part of the team.
Sam Timbe (Head Coach).
“We have worked long to get to where we are. Everyone may make mistakes along the way but what matters is how you handle those mistakes and move on. There were positives in our previous game we lost and we shall capitalise on them against Blacks Power, a side we know won’t be easy as they are fighting to survive relegation and they are home.”
He told the club media in the Pre-Match Presser.
“Things haven’t gone well for us in the last two games but we have corrected our mistakes and want to start the new month on a winning note. We know it won’t be easy in Lira but we are going to fight as a team to ensure we get positive results and get back to winning ways.”
It will be the second meeting between the two sides in history with the first one ending in a barren stalemate at Nakisunga Saza Ground in December last year.
URA FC currently sits in 4th place on 34 points from 24 games while our opponents are in the red zone in 14th place on 19 points from 23 games.
