URA FC head Coach Sam Simbwa says every team should win their-own games ahead of the final six games of the Uganda Premier League.
He made those remarks after his side’s 3-1 win at home to Police FC on Saturday, May 15.
Steven Mukwala, Joackim Ojera and Cromwell Rwothomio were all on target in the victory while Fahad Kizito scored what turned out to be just a consolation for Police.
Victory ensured the Tax Collectors stayed at the top the standings, moving to 54 points, one above second placed Vipers and two ahead of Express who sit third.
Speaking after the final whistle, Simbwa was quick to admit that he was happy to remain at the top despite their competitors also winning on the day.
“Am happy that we have won and happy again that we are leading the table. Simbwa said.
“But it’s also unlucky that our two competitors have also won.”
Now with 6 games to go, the race for the title looks to be headed to the wire.
If they win all their remaining six games, URA will win a first title since 2011.
Simbwa says every team should win their games.
“Let everybody win their games.
“For us we don’t mind about our opponents. We only mind about our next games and focusing on the Kyetume game.”
“Yes the competition is stiff but we are up to the task.
“As I told you we are ready for the task, made enough preparations and we are ready for the title challenge.”
Next up for URA is a trip to Nakisunga as they face a Kyetume side that is battling to avoid relegation.
Ahead of the contest, Simbwa is hoping their away record helps them get the three points.
“We shall go to the drawing board to rectify out mistakes and we shall take that game as we have handled the previous games.
“Most importantly we a have a good away record and hope to maintain it.”
URA have won the UPL on only four occasions, all coming between 2006 and 2011.
