Preview

URA have witnessed mixed results since the season resumed last week.

After losing to Express FC, the Tax Collectors bounced back with a hard fought victory over MYDA FC early this week.

It is this sort of form that has seen them consistently fail to put up a proper challenge for the title in the recent past.

However, they will hope to make it successive victories on Saturday as second spot on the log is on the line.

Sam Siimbwa’s side who have managed 14 points so far, will climb into second with victory against Wakiso.

However, it will not be an easy task as Wakiso are still one of three sides yet to lose a game this season.

The problem for the Purple Sharks has been transforming draws into victories.

Douglas Bamweyana’s side have drawn six of their opening seven games including at home to SC Villa in their latest encounter.

There only victory of this campaign came in their last road game as they beat Mbarara City FC 1-0 at Kakyeka.

To start the day, Wakiso sits 11th on the log but can climb as high as 6th if things go their way on Saturday.


The Stats

This will be just the second competitive meeting between the two sides.

The first came in their only match-up last season with Wakiso winning 3-1 at the Kabaka Kyabaggu Stadium in Wakissha.
