URA, Express Meet in Another Arduous tie

2 min read

Its completely a do or die assignment for both sides URA FC and Express FC who meet in an arduous task of the Uganda premier league on 14th February 2021 at the Arena of Visions in Ndejje.

The red eagles seek to return to winning ways after a home 1- all draw against Vipers SC in their recent engagement on 9th at Wankulukuku.

However, they face the tax collectors whose last engagement was a deserved 2-1 win against the 13 league champions KCCA at Lugogo.

It’s a distinctive and exceptional tie for football lovers today since both squads are toned with great players and that clearly explains why Express FC, URA, Vipers SC and Wakiso Giants are sides yet to lose a game this season.

Teams’ news
Wasswa Bbosa has a fully fit squad for selection. Ibrahim Kayiwa, Frank Ssenyondo and left back Arthur Kiggundu all returned to the squad.

After the departure of their long serving midfielder Saidi Kyeyune to Sudanese El Merriekh, URA will officially start life without him.
The tax collectors will bank on a workaholic Joakim Ojera, captain Shafic Kagimu, Steven Mukwala and Cromwell Rwothomio for positive results.

Whilst, Bbosa banks on Eric Kambale, new comer Muzamir Mutyaba, Frank Kalanda, Godfrey Lwesibawa and Charles Musiige.

Facts
Both sides have squared up 22 times with the tax collectors picking up 10 wins while the Red Eagles have managed two wins with 8 draws between the sides.

Express would like to duplicate the 2017/18 season results as Daniel Muzeyi Serunkuma’s first half strike made a difference for the Reds to win 1-0, and this became their last win against URA FC.
The most recent tie between the two sides held on Tuesday, 25th March 2020 ended 2-1 at Wankulukuku in favor of visitors (URA). Anwar Ntege and Mikidadi Ssenyonga scored URA goals while Frank Kalanda netted for Express FC.
