What the coaches say
Sam Timbe (URA)
“We have corrected the mistakes that we have been making in the previous games and the boys have responded well. We shall go into the game aiming for victory. We have been working on our scoring and hopefully the confidence in striking line improves. When you play as a team anyone can score.” Said Timbe
Alex Isabirye (BUL FC)
“Everyone knows what it means to get three points when away to URA.”
“And It is good we won our first two games and we want to go into this match with all that confidence.“
“I know they have struggled a bit after going two games without a goal but we all know they are a good side with a third place finish last season, and they have good coaches who I believe are doing everything to win tomorrow but we are ready for them.” Stated Isabirye
The tax collectors have no injury concerns ahead the contest and have a fully fit squad.
BUL on the other hand will be without defender Richard Ayiko due to injury.
This will be the 23rd meeting between the two sides in the league since November 2011, URA have 10 wins, BUL 3 victories and 9 games in the previous 22 have ended in stalemates.
