StarTimes Uganda Premier League

URA FC vs Wakiso Giants

Arena of Visions – Ndejje University, Bombo.

Kick-off: 1600hrs (EAT)

URA FC welcomes Wakiso Giants to Arena of Visions Ndejje in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League matchday eight. The Tax collectors approach this tie boosted by their 3-2 away victory to new league entrants MYDA at King George IV in Tororo on Wednesday that saw them climb to 3rd on the summit with 14 points but now sit 4th from seven games after Onduparaka win on Friday. That win was the third away win in a row and this means URA are yet to be beaten away from home.

Kagimu Shafik (L) assisted two of Cromwels 2 goals against MYDA FC.

However, their home record isn’t as good as the away and URA FC will be desperate to get back to winning ways following that 0-1 defeat to Express FC the last time they played at home. The visiting Purple Sharks ( Wakiso Giants) on the other hand shared spoils 2-2 with the League’s record-holders SC Villa at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium and are 11th on the table having collected nine points from seven games.

Galiwango Arafat has started in all our three previous games.

URA FC gaffer Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa’s mind is still fresh from last season’s 3-1 defeat away at Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium. He had hoped to have his revenge in the return leg but due to COVID-19, the game was not played as the league was suspended halfway. Could this be his moment to rectify the mistakes made back then? We wait to see on Saturday in Ndejje. 

TEAM NEWS.
Hatrick hero Cromwel Rwothomio who made his full return to the squad against MYDA is expected to keep his place alongside goal poacher Steven Mukwala and Ibrahim Dada upfront. In goal, shot-stopper Alionzi Nafian returned from injury and played 90 minutes in the MYDA affair and is expected to retain his position ahead of new acquisition Hannington Sebwalunyo and youngster Samuel Mwaka.

Cromwel Rwothomio scored his first goals (3) of the season against MYDA.
