URA FC head Coach Sam Simbwa says he is happy with his team’s performance but expressed worry ahead of the Fasting Period.
Simbwa made those remarks after his side beat KCCA FC 2-0 at the Arena of Visions in Ndejje, Bombo.
Second half goals from Joackim Ojera and captain Shafik Kagimu ensured that the Tax completed a league double over the Kasasiro Boys, having also won the first meeting this season 2-1 at Lugogo.
In a game where the Tax Collectors enjoyed most of the possession plus taking all the three points, Simbwa was quick to express his happiness.
“Am happy today that we have played well, the players have really played under instructions. He said
“We could even have added more than that, we created so many chances but am happy also that we have not conceded.”
The result for the Tax Collectors meant they have not lost any game in their last five meetings with KCCA – winning four and Drawn one.
Against KCCA, Simbwa was also welcoming back some of his senior players like Huud Mulikyi something he says it motivated his side.
“The players coming back also motivated us but some played when they were still injured but we had no option.”
As the fasting period for the Moslem fraternity started on Tuesday, URA is a side that has most of their players fasting including their Captain Kagimu and many others.
On this, Simbwa says this period might cost his side as they seek to fight for the title.
“The other undoing is that 65 percent of my players have started fasting, it might cost us.
“Like today you saw my captain Kagimu, he was playing very well but he became tired not because he is unfit but because he is fasting.
In their next assignment, URA host BUL FC in a game Simbwa admits they will play the same way they did against the Kasasiro Boys
“We shall try to play as we have played today and we shall talk to our boys to keep fit. If you loose the fitness between now and Friday that’s going to be bad.
The result saw URA move to 39 points, level with Vipers SC as they seek to keep in the title race this season and probably win a first title since 2011.
