URA host Wakiso Giants this Tuesday evening, December 28th, at the Arena of Visions, Ndejje University, in what will be Matchday 11 of the 2021/22 StarTimes Uganda Premier League season for the tax collectors.

The fixture presents the Tax Collectors with a great chance to maintain the momentum, as this will be the second consecutive home encounter in just a space of less than a week. The most recent came in satisfactory measures against Mbarara City.

Sam Timbe, whose excitement in the aftermath of the victory against the Ankole Lions was vividly uncontested, highlighted the importance of his team maintaining the adrenaline as exhibited in a more ruthless manner.

“I must commend my team for the great display against Mbarara City, and hopefully, that will be something to capitalize on against a good side like Wakiso Giants,” Timbe excitedly told URAFC Media.

“I thought the boys did well especially in terms of controlling the game and that helped massively. We shall need to employ all this and more against a team on form, Wakiso is not winning games by mistake.”

Timbe would further express his worries on the opposition and speak at length, how hard a team they are to beat. This is especially when Alex Gitta’s team are playing away from home.

“I think Gitta has made them a team that is so hard to beat, they defend better and that simply means that our forward players have their work cut out for them,” he highlighted.

“Actually, it should be a collective effort from the eleven men on the pitch for us because neither Mukwala nor Rwothomio scored against Mbarara City, but we got the first goal from midfield. We shall need more of this.”

“I am comfortable with how the boys have looked in training and my expectations are that we shall have a good game. The aim is of course winning the game,” he summed.

Meanwhile, the Purple Sharks approach the game with a desire to make amends after falling short to Arua Hill SC in their most recent fixture. Winning the game will surely be a desire they ponder.

The assignment is however clear for the Tax Collectors, win the game and close in to the top six teams. It is also imperative to remember the URA still have two games in hand.
