Following a successful adventure away from home that saw us conquer Vipers SC in their own backyard, URA FC will now channel their efforts and motivation to Police FC, with a conviction that winning the tie will help earn us a better position.

The fixture, which will be played this Tuesday, November 30 2021, will be our fourth home game at the Arena of Visions, Ndejje University, but will also double as our sixth encounter of the season.

A fixture where a win will see us claim a spot in the top four positions, and URA coach, Simeon Massa seemed not to be oblivious to this fact and reiterated the importance of the game during his pre-match interview.

“We need to win the game against Police in order to improve our position on the league table. Yes, we have games to play so as to catch up but we need to take games as they come,” Massa emphasized.

“We got a deserved win away from home against Vipers and we need to continue with this momentum. We can not afford to be complacent after such a huge result.”

As expected, the fact that Police FC have struggled to find a better result in their adventures this season came up in the interview. The URA media team asked, “Won’t this be a flash in the pan?”

“No, it certainly won’t. Football is a funny sport and we love it a lot because of its unpredictability. Police have struggled but it’s possible for them to shock us if we let them.”

“They have a good squad and a good coach, we can’t take them for granted. We need to attack from the front and take no prisoners. We need to be lethal,” he summed.

Abdallah Mubiru’s Police FC come into this fixture having failed to win in the league in seven times of asking, they will need to raise their standards against a high flying URA if they harbour any hopes of winning all three points.

What You Ought To Know

URA are the top scorers in the season so far with 15goals in the league but have conceded a staggering seven goals. We have scored a maximum of two goals in every game we have played so far.

Since 2013, URA has won a whopping 10 games of the 18 fixtures played by both teams in the league. Police have won only three while five have simply been drawn.

Actually, of the last five encounters, the Tax Collectors have won four and lost just once at home during the 2018/19 season.

Cromwel Rwothomio and his forward partner Steven Desse Mukwala lead the topscorers board with five goals each.

Just like how it was against Vipers, Derrick Ndahiro, Nafian Alionzi and Jackson Nunda are still sidelined with injuries.

Najib Fesali returned to the training while Rwothomio is a doubt for the game after being stretched off the pitch at the St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
