URA vs Mbarara City
Mandela National Stadium
URA FC host Mbarara City FC in the Star Times Uganda Premier league at the Mandela National Stadium on Saturday.
Despite both sides being on a poor run of form, URA head into the game off the back of their big win away at the Green light stadium, where they edged Onduparaka 2-1. They will be hoping they can build on it positively on when they meet.
Mbarara head coach Paul Nkata started his debut at the Ankole lions in impressive style, with a 2-1 win over Busoga United, but the tactician has failed to ensure victory since, losing back to back in the league against Wakiso Giants and Maroons.
Sam Ssimbwa’s charges are also not faring any different, as they have only managed eight goals.
Mbarara will rely on Paul Mucureezi, Brian Ahebwa, Ibrahim Orit, Ivan Eyam and Jude Semugabi if there to go passed URA
Sam Simbwa will hope that Cromwell Rwothomio who scored twice as they defeated Onduparaka does the same against Mbarara City. He will also rely on the services of Shafic Kagimu and Saidi Kyeyune

URA is currently 11th with nine points from seven games whereas the Ankole lions are placed 12thhaving collected just eight points from eight outings.
