Steven Mukwala scored two goals as URA FC won 3-1 against Busoga United on Friday in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League.
Mukwala connected neatly with Arafat Ggaliwango’s cross before doing likewise with Ibrahim Dada’s teasing in-swinger, taking his tally to 11 goals for the season.
The forward who netted twice recently against Bright Stars, will fancy his chances to take the golden boot like he did in 2019/20 at Maroons where he took it with just 13.
The hosts who came into the game on a two-game unbeaten run, were handed a life-line as Anwar Ntege converted from the spot after Ggaliwango clumsy brought down Hassan Kintu in the area following poor attempts by the Tax Collectors to deal with a routine corner kick.
However, that is as close as the hosts came to taking anything from the game, with substitute Ivan Sserubiru expertly scoring a freekick to put URA out of sight.
Victory is URA’s seventh for the season and it takes them to 28 points, five behind leaders Vipers SC with both sides having played 15 games.
For Busoga United, they stay in 15th spot on 11 points and this is their 10th loss of the campaign in just 15 games.
In their next fixtures, Busoga United host Mbarara City on Tuesday, February 8th while URA FC take on KCCA FC the following day.
