Venue : Kavumba
Date : Saturday, 10th March 2018
Kick off :4pm

Alex Isabirye will be looking for his first league victory when his Soana side welcomes URA at Kavumba on Saturday evening.

Isabirye has managed four league games since his return at the helms of the Kavumba outfit and has suffered two defeats and drawn twice. He lost to Vipers and KCCA FC and drew against Mbarara City and Kirinya.

Soana currently sits in 12th place with 21 points, victory on Saturday will see them move to 9th place on the Azam Uganda Premier league log basing on other results.

The visitors URA FC are 7th on the table with 26 points accumulated in the 19 league games played this season.

The first round meeting between the two saw URA win 1-0 at Namboole and will be looking forward to have a similar result on Saturday.

On the contrary, the tax collectors have not been good visitors having lost 6, drew once and won twice in the nine games they have played on the road.


Soana head coach Alex Isabirye who will be seeking for his first league win since his return at the club is convinced and that his charges will claim three points. He says,

“I am yet to register a league win since my return at the club and have only managed two points in four games. This is because I have struggled to identify my starting eleven but i have tried to fix this around and I hope we shall get three points against URA FC on Saturday.”

Soana’s trio Steven Ategeka, John Musinguzi and Simon Okwi who have been injured trained with the rest of the team ahead of this contest but will have to undergo a late fitness test.

The hosts will put their trust in Mike Kawooya and Isa Mubiru to lead them to a much needed victory on Saturday.

Paul Nkata’s side have no injury concerns ahead of this encounter and will look at Herman Wasswa, Moses Sseruyidde and Shafik Kagimu for inspiration.

All that awaits is how Alex Isabirye will set up his beleaguered troops as he seeks for his first victory against poor travellers URA.
