URA head coach Sam Simbwa says he is very excited with his side’s away records
He made remarks in the post match press conference after URA’s 3-0 comfortable win against Onduparaka in Arua on Wednesday.
The Tax Collectors’ goals were scored by Steven Mukwala (brace) and Cromwell Rwomothio.
The team has managed to collect 22 points from eight away games after managing seven wins and one draw.
“The team played well and played under instructions. It has been our biggest win away from home.” Simbwa started.
“We have scored three goals without conceding which was very good and I appreciate the away display of the team because ever since we started the league, out of the eight games, we have managed to win seven and one draw which was against Mbarara city.”
Last season while at Maroons, Steven Mukwala was the top scorer with 13 goals for the team.
But currently with anew side URA, the story has not changed much.
With the first round coming to an end, he tops the scoring log with 9 goals from 15 matches and at URA, Mukwala is followed by Cromwell Rwomothio with six goals bringing total tally to15 goals for both players.
Speaking about the duo, Simbwa says he is happy for them
“I am very happy with Steven and Cromwell because after one or two games, they both score and it is a good thing for us in our up coming games.”
When the coach was asked about league break effects on his players and the team at larger, he had this to say;
“It will depend on our plan because they didn’t summon any player from my team for national duty.”
“So we can arrange some good friendlies and good trainings and will be in good positions to resume again.”
URA sits top of the log with 36 points from 15 games.
Simbwa thinks they have over-achieve since his target for the first round was to finish up in the second place.
“In fact we had set our goals and targets. Our target was to be in the second place on the table and we had planned to start very well but because of covid, we had seven of our players removed from the team which affected us but after that we have been consistently doing well.”
URA are expected to return to training on Monday, February 22.
