Kick off : 4:30pm

URA FC will seek to revenge against Tooro United for their 2-1 defeat when the two side met in the first round at Namboole.

The tax collectors have won all their three games in the second round and will be seeking for their fifth consecutive win in the league.

They have registered wins against SC Villa, BUL, Bright Stars and won against Proline in their last game of the first round.

They face Tooro United who have lost all their three games in the second round, two of which have been by forfeiture against Onduparaka and Kyetume FC.

Tooro come into the encounter after losing to KCCA 1-0 at Lugogo in their last league game.

While URA are third on the log and in touching distance with the title favorites Vipers and KCCA, their opponents Tooro are second from the bottom with 14 points.

Despite the uncertainty hovering around the club, Tooro managed to pick a 3-2 win over Starlight FC in the Uganda Cup while URA thumped Lugazi Municipal 4-0 in the same round.

Sam Ssimbwa welcomes back Joackim Ojera and Patrick Mboowa from injury while Moses Seruyidde, Najib Fesali and Dan Isaigi remain sidelined.

Alitho James is also ruled out of the encounter and didn’t travel with the team to Fort Portal.

Cromwell Rwothomio is arguably the most in-form player in the league having scored four goals in the last four league games for URA.

Tooro who are under the stewardship of Mohamed Kisekka, will be boasted by the timely return of defender Mike Kawooya.

Kisekka will also rely on Yafesi Mubiru, Willy Kavuma and Charles Musiige among other in pursuit of a positive result.
