URA FC coach Sam Ssimbwa says that his team will rectify mistakes in the coming games after a goalless draw with Bright Stars FC.
URA have now collected two points from as many games after opening with a 1-1 draw at Mbarara City.
Against Bright Stars, URA were the better side but failed to take care of their chances at Arena of Visions.
“We played above average and according to me we could have taken the day because we created scoring chances but unfortunately Steven Mukwala didn’t do what he was supposed to do,” Ssimbwa noted at fulltime.
“Not scoring goals worries me, but you see my top two strikers are out because of Covid, and this time round we had changed formation, you can see the situation we are in.
“But I hope it will not continue.”
Michael Birungi hit the woodwork, Ivan Sserubiri was denied by Benson Wagina while Mukwala’s header was off the target off Kyeyune’s freekick.
“We are going back to the drawing board to rectify mistakes which have hindered us from winning this game,” Ssimbwa added.
“We shall sharpen the strikers, and the attacking midfielders to see that if Mukwala doesn’t click, they can also assist and score
“We shall also organise our defence because we made a few mistakes which would have resulted into conceding goals.”
This is the first point for Bright Stars this season having lost 2-1 to KCCA at Kavumba in the opener.
