URA FC will return to action on Wednesday afternoon when they take on Proline FC in the Pilsner Super 8 tournament.

After losing 0-2 away to Mbarara City, the Tax Collectors fell from the championship bracket to the placement matches.

The game against Proline is a chance to return to winning ways and also qualify for the 6th/7th place final.

“We lost to Mbarara last time out and we very much want to return to winning ways, said URA FC head coach Sam Simbwa.

“It was a difficult game for us but we learned a lot from it and hopefully we correct our mistakes against Proline.

“They are a good team that is playing continental football this season and also have a good coach but I am confident my players will win the game for us.”

URA FC will go into the game without several players.

Hassan Kalega, Anwaru Ntege, Moses Sseruyidde and Joackiam Ojera will not feature in the game as they are all currently injured.

Kigongo Ronald, Ibrahim Dada and Mutyaba Julius are doubtful but have chances of playing.

The good news is that the four players who were with the national team including skipper Shafik Kagimu, James Alitho, Mandela Ashraf and Patrick Mbowa have all returned and expected to take part. All the four missed the game against Mbarara City.

For Proline, they also lost their first Pilsner Super 8 game, going down 0-1 at home to Vipers SC.

This will be URA FC’s 13th meeting with Proline FC.

The last time the Tax Collectors took on Proline, they defeated Shafiq Bisaso’s side 2-1 away from home.

URA FC has lost only one of their last 8 fixtures against Proline FC,  winning the other 5 and drawing twice.
