URA’s Ssimbwa unmoved despite BUL FC’s win
URA FC head coach Sam Ssimbwa was left unfazed despite sealing a double win against BUL FC for the first time in the Ugandan Premier League on Saturday.
The Tax Collectors continued with their good run in the top-flight at the Arena of Visions as goals from Brian Majwega, Kagimu Shafik and Cromwel Rwothomio ensured they won 3-1 at home.
They also did a league double against BUL for the first time since their inception into the top-flight league.
Despite the home and away record win, coach Ssimbwa, who came into the match after being named the best coach for the month of March, maintained the most important thing was for his team to win the fixture and not to seal a double over their opponents.
“We don’t want to get carried away with records,” Ssimbwa told the club’s official website after the game.
“They don’t mean a lot to us but perhaps to the fans, we want to win games. That’s all.”
“There aren’t many better feelings in football than winning at home, even better, earning successive wins to climax a brilliant week,” he added.
The Tax Collectors took control of the proceedings from there on and the pressure did pay off in the 30th minute when Majwega brilliantly scored directly from a free-kick for the opener.
The joy was however short-lived as the visitors equalised in the game after just three minutes through Walter Ochora, who capitalised on a defensive lapse to bring the teams to level terms.
However, Kagimu would get to relive the moment he had at the conclusion of the first half, this time, he made it count as he put URA forward again in the 57th minute.
Rwothomio eventually sealed the tie with the third on the day rebounding Kagimu’s shot which the goalkeeper missed.
URA will next face SC Villa in an away match at Bombo Military grounds stadium on Wednesday.
