URA FC will host Bright Stars in the four StarTimes Uganda Premier League games on Thursday afternoon.

The Tax Collectors have been in fine form of late, one that has seen them move into third on the standings.

In their last six games, URA has won four and drawn two and are currently the most in-form side in the division.

Going into Wednesday’s encounter, Benjamin Nyakoojo has recovered from injury and is set to be in the Match-day squad. However, Ronald Kigongo, Allan Munaba and Allan Mugalu are still nursing injuries and are expected to still be out.

It is a revenge mission of sorts as Bright Stars eliminated the Tax Collectors from the Uganda Cup back in February.

This will be the 13th meeting between the two sides. In the first 12, URA has won 5, lost two and drawn the other five against Bright Stars. Bright Stars have never defeated URA away from home in the League with their only victory at the Tax Collectors’ home coming in the Uganda cup in a 2-1 in on 18th February 2019. The reverse fixture last season saw URA beat Bright Stars 1-0 before once again enjoying victory (2-0) over Kajoba’s charges in the first League meeting of this campaign. URA head into the game having lost only one of their last 9 League games (W5 D3). At home, the Tax Collectors have lost twice in their last 7 games (W3 D2).

Captain’s views:

“We are determined and want to win tomorrow’s game. “We have 5 games left and we can’t afford to lose any of these. ”Bright Stars eliminated us from the Uganda Cup which was painful. “We are going to reduce on the mistakes we made last time.
