Champs URA face Hoima



URA will open up a three-point lead at the Bell Super League summit if they beat Hoima-Busia away at Bugembe on Monday.

The Uganda Super League brought forward matches involving URA and Bunnamwaya, who host Simba on Tuesday, so as to allow the two ample time to prepare for the Uganda Cup final on Saturday.

URA and Express are both on 44 points but the tax collectors top standings thanks to a better goal difference.

Their Monday opponents are, meanwhile, battling relegation in second from bottom with 18 points and just 10 games to go.

URA come into this tie on an unbalanced terrain having drawn four of their last five league games, including two successive one-all stalemates against KCC and Victors last week.

Peter Ogutu’s Hoima-Busia have won four out of 20 and lost their last outing 2-1 to Water.

They desperately need a result at their Bugembe home if they are to seriously lodge a survival campaign.

Hoima-Busia are complaining of fatigue, rightly so, having played 20 matches in the last three months.

URA will still be without injured Vincent Kayizzi, Sula Bagala, Allan Munaaba, Sam Mubiru, and Asuman Alishe who is starting his university exams.

“Injuries have really cost us in the past weeks but we have to get on with it,” URA coach Alex Isabirye told SuperSport.com.

“I will use the players available. I don’t want to hurry those on 50-50 because we want them fit for the Uganda Cup on Saturday.”
