Sam Timbe (Head Coach)
“It’s a match that we want to win after going three games without victory. We have done everything in our reach and we are waiting for the match. We know we are facing a side that is fighting not to be relegated and we won’t take them for granted.”
He said in the Pre-Match Presser.
“It won’t be an easy match against a side fighting for relegation but we want this game because we have gone three games without winning. I am facing my former side and I won’t have any mercy for them as I am now a URA FC player.”
Head To Head.
In the last 5 meetings, the Tax Collectors have managed 4 wins and 1 draw that came in the first round in Bombo in a one all tie thanks to defender Eric Senjobe late equaliser from a header.
On the log currently, URA sit in 6th place on 35 points from 25 games while the Army side are 12th with 25 points from 24 games.
