URA FC seek to return to winning ways against Kirinya

DAVID GOMBE

URA FC will be seeking to return to winning ways when entertain Kirinya Jinja SS FC tomorrow Thursday 21st February at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

Sam Simbwa’s charges come into this game after suffering a 2-1 defeat to Bright Stars in the Stanbic Uganda Cup contest. They also played out to a goalless draw with Onduparaka FC in their previous league game.

On the other hand, Kirinya Jinja SS FC needed a Joel Madondo sole goal to edge Police FC in their last league contest at the Might Arena, Jinja.

When the two sides faced off in the first round, the game ended in a 1-1 stalemate in Jinja. URA FC and Kirinya Jinja have each won once and drawn three in their last five league meetings.

Kirinya Jinja tactician Abbey Bogere Kikomeko is optimistic that his side can scoop maximum points over the tax collectors.

“We play URA FC, one of the great teams with experienced players but we are well prepared to face them. The win against Police gives us motivation heading into this fixture and the other thing is that Namboole is like a neutral ground for both sides despite URA playing as hosts.” He stated.

Shafiq Kagimu, Saidi Kyeyune and Siraje Sentamu are expected to inspire Sam Simbwa’s beleaguered troops to maximum points.

The Jinja outfit are likely to welcome back Godfrey Akol who fully recovered from injury, they will look up to Joel Madondo and Douglas Muganga for inspiration.

A win for URA FC who are currently 5th on the log with 29 points will see them leapfrog BUL FC from fourth place whereas victory for Kirinya can see them move from 11th to 7th place.
