URA enter residential as Coton arrive



The country’s Caf Champions League representatives, URA, head into a residential camp in the Eastern town of Jinja on Wednesday as they step up preparations for the return leg against Coton Sport of Cameroon at Namboole on Saturday.

According to the club website, the team will travel back on Thursday and Friday for training at the match venue before returning to Jinja from where they will depart on Saturday straight to the match.

“While at Namboole on Thursday morning and evening plus Friday morning,” reads a circular, adding, “The technical team will be ready to address any required technical information.”

A goalless draw will see the tie decided on spot kicks while any scoring stalemate will see the Ugandan outfit out of the tournament. An outright win for either side will see them make the first round of the competition.

Meanwhile, Coton Sport, who were forced into a goalless draw in Cameroon, arrive in Kampala on Wednesday evening aboard Kenya Airways.

They are booked into Sky Hotel which is located in Naalya, a Kampala suburb. They will then train at URA’s Gayaza ground on Thursday before getting a feel of the match venue on Friday.

Tanzanian referees will take charge of the match while the match commissioner is from Djibouti. The officials arrive on Wednesday afternoon.
