Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club utility player Hudu Mulikyi is positive that the tax collectors will have a good ending to the current 2019-2020 Uganda Premier League season.

A defender-cum-midfielder, Mulikyi is confident that they will climax the season on a high footing.

First of all, I am grateful about the teamwork character from the rest of my fellow players, the coaching staff and the administrative department for the effort so far. I expect to finish the season on a strong footing. We shall do well and fight for a respectable position” Mulikyi disclosed to Kawowo Sports.

For a large part of this season, Mulikyi has been deployed as a central defender alongside either Benjamin Nyakoojo or Paul Patrick Mbowa.

Other times, he played as a right back and holding midfielder.

For the ability to be deployed in various positions on the field of play, Mulikyi is humbled.

It is very humbling to play in various positions on the field of play very well. It is always up to the technical team to see how best to deploy me and I serve with confidence” Mulikyi who previously played at Maroons noted.

The tax collectors are currently in fifth place with 40 points, 14 away from the log leaders, Vipers.

Second placed KCCA has 50 points, SC Villa (46) and Busoga United (42) follow suit in that order.

URA still has five matches to play, like the rest of the other 15 Uganda Premier League clubs.
