URA FC Out to Compound Police Misery

URA FC will be going for maximum points when they host struggling Police FC at the Arena of Visions in Ndejje.

The Tax Collectors come into the game on the back of a sweet 2-0 away to Vipers at Kitende and the side will be hoping to build on such a result.

They return to the venue where they beat Tooro United 6-1 and will be hoping to exorcise those demons against a similarly troubled side.

Police picked their first point of the season after a goalless draw with Mbarara City, a result that snapped their six-game losing streak.

A win at URA FC will be a big ask for a side that has only scored just two goals but they will be hoping to create an upset.

Last season, URA FC beat Police home and away including a 3-1 win at Ndejje where Steven Mukwala, Joackim Ojera and Cromwell Rwothomio were on target for a then Sam Ssimbwa side while Fahad Kizito scored a consolation for the Cops.
