Super League leaders URA FC coach Paul Nkata will not give up on their quest to win a double – FUFA Super League and Uganda Cup.

URA went top of the FSL after a 2-1 win over struggling Police FC on Friday evening at Lugazi Stadium.

“We should stop looking at the gap between us and our opponents but concentrate on winning our matches. We still have an opportunity to clinch title,” Nkata told RED Pepper on Saturday.

“We must focus on our fixtures and perform well. We need maximum points from all matches…and who knows anything can happen. I always trust in whatever I strive to achieve and to me anything is possible.

The revenue side benefited from Soana FC’s first defeat who went down 4-2 away to Bidco FC, while SC Victoria University also won their game and moved to second place.

In-form Feni Moses Ali who earned a Cranes call-up this week together with another national team member Said Kyeyune netted for URA FC, while Francis Kawooya pulled one back for 11th placed Police FC.

Bidco FC coach Kefa Kisaala kept his promise of picking three points against Soana FC who had not suffered defeat in their opening four games.

Francis Olaki increased his tally to eight goals in the League with a brace, while Crespo Asiku made sure he took the ball home with a hat-trick, and Hussein Kato added the fourth goal.

“We worked so hard to get this win and it will not be easy for any team in the league to come here and beat us,” an excited Asiku said after the game.

Defending champions KCCA FC also managed a 2-1 away win over Masaka LC FC with Tony Odur and Herman Wasswa scoring the goals, while Ronald Lubega scored for the home side.

KCCA are in fourth place with 10 points, three less than table leaders URA FC.
