The urge to win silverware this season is undeniable for most clubs, it’s more realistic if the club is still playing in the Stanbic Uganda Cup.
That’s the situation URA and Bright Stars find themselves in ahead of Monday’s at Namboole stadium with a quarterfinal ticket available.
Sam Ssimbwa’s charges seem to have revived themselves for the better in the second round of the StarTimes Uganda Premier League picking up 7 points from the possible 12.
The momentum comes at the best time against Bright Stars who have gone winless in 10 consecutive games in the league.
“Our target is to win a title this season, the Uganda Cup is not out of reach for us and we hope for better results against Bright Stars,” Ssimbwa told www.football-256.com.
“Bright Stars are not an easy side, one of the organised sides in the league and we know they will come here wanting to result, so we must prepare adequately,” he added.
The striking duo of Brian Kayanja and Nelson Ssenkatuka went off the boil for Bright Stars leading to the poor run in the league.
They will hope to avenge the loss against URA in the league earlier on hence keeping their silverware hopes alive on Friday evening against URA.
The tax collectors who have won the domestic cup twice, they will hope captain Shafick Kagimu and midfielder Tabu Vitalis spur them past Fred Kajoba’s charges.
Elsewhere, record winners Express FC host Police FC at the Betway Mutesa II Stadium Wankulukuku.
The hosts will try to avoid a repeat of the 2-0 loss by Abdullah Mubiru’s side the last time they played at Wankulukuku, the result also led to the sacking of former coach Kefa Kisala.
