URA interim head coach Fred Muhumuza is wary of the threat UPDF poses when they at home ahead of the teams’ clash at Bombo.
The corresponding fixture last season ended in a draw but Muhumuza who takes charge of his first game in the league believes that will change on Sunday.
“Bombo isn’t an easy place to visit and we play a very stubborn side in UPDF,” said Muhumuza.
“We would have loved to start at home but we shall abide by the fixture and the boys are set and ready and want to build on the good run we had in the Fufa Super 8.”
The fixture will see renewal of acquaintances for many of his former players – Ibrahim Wamanah, James Begisa and Ivan Ahimbisibwe taking on former pay masters.
