Preview – Another Routine Loss?

Kitara welcome URA FC to Kavumba Recreation Centre in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.

The newcomers have been baptised with fire since joining top flight and will seek to make amends against the Tax Collectors as they seek to search for their first victory.

Kitara were just seconds away from earning their second point of the season in their last game against SC Villa before Faizol Kazibwe grabbed a late winner.

Against URA, they face a side that is yet to lose a game on the road but are devoid of confidence after failing to find the back of the net in a goalless draw against Wakiso Giants.

Sam Ssimbwa will feel that this is a side they should win, but will need the best from his attackers including Steven Mukwala and Cromwell Rwothomio.
