A plot for the fourth victory in the row.

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club makes the long trip to Fort Portal for match 148 against Tooro United on Tuesday, 28th January 2020.

The game comes in the wake of three successful victories since the second round kicked off on 7th January 2020 with the 2-0 home win over Sports Club Villa.

URA continued with the fairytale with a comprehensive 3-1 away win to BUL at the FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru and that hard-fought 1-0 home win over Bright Stars.

Coming to this match proper, URA has since taken command of the fourth place on the log with 29 points, 13 off the leaders (Vipers).
