URA FC will be targeting return to winning ways when they face on form BUL FC on matchday seven of the StarTimes UPL on Saturday.

The tax collectors are winless in their last four games since beating Maroons 3-0 in their league opener and pressure will be on Sam Ssimbwa to deliver.

URA are 11th on the 16-team log with only five points from five games – They have one win, two losses and as many draws.

BUL FC on the other hand, are joint top but are specifically second because of an inferior goal difference compared to leaders Onduparaka’s.

Peter Onen’s side visit Namboole on the back of two wins – They beat Wakiso Giants 1-0 on the road before humbling Maroons 2-0 at Njeru recently. Their only loss came against Busoga united in Jinja derby.

Simbwa who has failed to figure out a permanent starting lineup for his side, will count on Patrick Mbowa who scooped man of the match award in their last league game against Bright Stars to provide cover at the back while usual suspects Shafic Kagimu and Saidi Kyeyune will remain the team’s fulcrum.

New signing Hood Kaweesa is also expected to start his second match after having a promising start on his debut against Bright Stars FC.

The visitors on the other hand, are expected to field the same starting line-up which defeated Maroons FC in their last game commanded by their sharp shooter Robert Mokongotya and team Captain Denis Okot.

Last season, Richard Wandyaka’s header for BUL cancelled out Rwothomio Cromwell’s early opener as both sides played a one all draw at Namboole.
