Preview – Hosts seek fourth successive victory
URA are one of the In-form side of the division and head into Friday’s game full of confidence.
After losing to Express FC 1-0 on Match-day six, Sam Simbwa’s side has gone on a five game unbeaten run.
In the period, they have won four and drawn the other.
They are also currently on a three-match winning run including victories over Kitara FC, Busoga United and UPDF FC.
The Tax Collectors start the day just three points off top spot and that will also work as motivation for victory against struggling Kyetume.
Kyetume are indeed in poor form and desperate for points.
The Slaughters are currently on a mid-March winless streak (D2 L4).
Alex Isabirye’s side have also lost both of their last two games to Mbarara City and SC Villa.
They sit in 12th spot with 11 points, six above the relegation zone.
This will be the third meeting between the two sides in history.
Both of the first two meetings ended in draws.
