Substitute Shafik Kagimu’s goal was enough to earn the tax collectors a much deserved win in their game against the Bright stars at Namboole.
This was Paul Nkata’s first win with URA FC since taking charge last year in December
In the start the game looked balanced with end to end attacks but with very limited real goal opportunities on both sides.
The first period of the game ended with literally no harmful impact created on either side.
Enter second half, injured Peter Lwasa paved way for Shafik Kagimu. In the next few minutes, the impact on the game was visible and URA FC made constant attacks on the opponent goal.
25 minutes into the second half, Kagimu broke the deadlock. Said Kyeyune made a superb assist when he easily went past defender Sam Sekitto to lay a cross into the Bright Stars goal area for a Kagimu tap in past a visibly helpless goalkeeper Benson Wagima.
There was no much effort to push for an equaliser for the visitors. Even when coach Fred Kajoba brought in Moses Okot and Remex Kasozi to replace Nelson Senkatuuka and Seif Batte respectively, there was no much impact created on the game.
The win takes URA to the 7th position with 23 points while the Bright Stars drop to the 12th position and remain on 19 points.
In their next game, URA will visit SC Villa at the recreation grounds in Masaka while the Bright Stars host Express FC at the Champions’ Stadium in Mwererwe.
