Preview: Who Wants It Most?

Much will be at stake as Kyetume host URA at Nakisunga Ssaza ground in one of the biggest Uganda Premier League games of the season.

The Tax Collectors visit Kyetume with title talk all over their mouth after defending champions Vipers lost ground on the chase following their dramatic loss to Mbarara.

A win for URA will not only see the Tax Collectors leapfrog Express to the top but also hand Sam Ssimbwa’s side a four-point advantage over Vipers.

Ssimbwa is well aware that this is one of their hardest fixture of the remaining six. With UPDF (H), Busoga United (A), Kitara (H), Wakiso Giants (A) and MYDA (H) still to come.

This finds Kyetume six points adrift of safety and will need each point along the way if they are to have a third season in the top flight.

However, things have not gone well for new coach Jackson Mayanja who is yet to hit the ground running but its results in such big games that can shape their season.

Cromwell Rwothomio and Steven Mukwala scored one each as URA won 2-0 at Arena of Visions in the first round, and the duo, alongside Shafic Kagimu, Joachim Ojera and Moses Sseruyidde may once again prove handful for a leaky Kyetume backline.

Its a Jackson Mayanja vs Sam Ssimbwa affair, this is mouthwatering.
