- URA Vs Police – Namboole 4pm
Former league champions URA and Police face off in a battle of struggling purists at Namboole.
The Tax Collectors will be the hosts this time around as they seek to prevent a double loss from the Cops who came from a goal down to win the reverse contest 2-1.
URA lost 3-0 to giants SC Villa in their previous fixture and thus eager to avoid another setback despite Paul Nkata revealing they are using the remaining league games to prepare for next season.
“For us, the remaining games are like trials,” he said. “We are learning how we want to play and if we get it, we shall be hard to beat,” he cynically stated.
But against a struggling Police side that has won none of their last six games, the four time league winners will fancy their chances.
Police lost to UPDF 2-1 at home close to weeks ago and are short on confidence although defender Aggrey Madoi believes they will rise up.
“It’s disappointing to be in such disastrous form,” he said. “As players, we take responsibility but must rise up to the occasion against URA,” he added.
Police have a chance to jump to fourth from 6th with maximum points while URA will leapfrog them if they get the three points.
