- URA Vs Proline – Mehta Grounds, Lugazi 4.30pm
URA host Proline at Mehta Grounds, Lugazi on Friday afternoon with either side looking for maximum points.
In a battle of ‘draw kings’, the hosts will be favourites given their experience and home advantage but that guarantees no win given the trend of performance for Kefa Kisala’s men.
The two teams have a combined – 22 draws out of the 34 matches played with the hosts drawing most games (12) in the league.
“We have lost points we didn’t deserve to lose,” said Kisala. “But it’s something we work on every day in training and hopefully, we get our first league win of the second round against Proline,” he added.
Seventh on the log with 24 points, the hosts come into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw with Onduparaka, away from home but that was preceded by a similar result against JMC Hippos at home.
Hamis Kiiza and Said Kyeyune who have close ties with Proline after training and playing for the side respectively will be the main men for the four-time league champions.
Meanwhile, Proline, eleventh on the 16-team log with five points less come into the game with morale low after losing 1-0 to Police in their last league match.
But with the form of Nelson Ssenkatuka, Gift Ali and David Owori, they will fancy their chances against a side equally low on confidence.
“We’ve had good preparations and we should be able to respond well in tomorrow’s game,’ Proline Coach Mujib Kasule told Prolinefc.com. “We have worked on our mistakes and hope to do well by correcting them because before us is an opportunity to start again. Win three points and build on that to starting winning games consistently,” he added.
We are never in a position where we must lose. We always want to win and that’s the next game. We want to respond to our disappointment in the last with a good performance.
The reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 draw at Lugogo in a match Bokota Labama Kamana missed a penalty for the visitors.
