Asaph Mwebaze is optimistic as he searches for his first victory since returning to the Uganda Premier league

“We have worked on our mistakes we faced in the previous games and we now need to step up the game and manage it better because we were in a winning position against UPDF and we recklessly gave away that position in the last minutes of the game as we could have won but unfortunately we didn’t,”

Mwebaze stated.

“We go into the game against URA hoping that we can do the things a bit better, faster and probably score more goals as we have been working on that the past week.

“We expect to come out with a positive result from Nakisunga.”

Last season, the tax collectors completed a double over Bright Stars 3-1 at home and 3-0 in Kavumba.
