You must understand when Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) football club head coach Paul Nkata says the team cannot afford to drop any more points now.
URA FC take on Soana FC in the FUFA Super League at Lugazi grounds today and after dropping points in their previous match that ended in a 1-1 draw to Police FC, coach Nkata considers this encounter as important as ever.
‘You know where the league is headed now. We cannot afford to lose any points now. We have decided to approach every remaining match with the caution we often choose to approach a final’ Nkata warned after their last training yesterday.
Nkata is likely to maintain his line-up that drew with Police FC when Frank Kalanda leads the attack. The two teams played a draw in the first leg last October.
URA FC lost their latest encounter in the league to SCVU while Soana FC suffered the same fate to BUL FC.
A win for URA FC will propel them to level with Vipers SC on top of the table with 44points especially if the latter fails to beat Kira Young FC in Buikwe.
However, since returning to Buikwe after FUFA lifted the ban on the ground, Vipers SC have not dropped points there in the league. There latest league encounter there ended in 1-0 win over SCVU.
At Nakivubo stadium, SC Villa face their lifelong rivals Express FC. The Red Eagles even appear more wounded than the Jogoos ahead of the match. Express beat Villa 1-0 in the first leg at Mutesa II Stadium in Waknulukuku and they badly need this win to ensure they relax the relegation threat on themselves. Express are currently fifth from the bottom of the table in the 16 team log with just four wins this season so far.
