Startimes UPL: URA ready to tax Vipers

0

With just a four points difference on the log, Uganda Revenue Authority will host defending Champions Vipers Sports Club in the Startimes Uganda Premier League at Nakisunga grounds on Saturday.

The tax collectors have had different struggles on the pitch, the most notable one being winning games having won twice, drawn four times and losing twice putting up a total point tally of ten in eight games.

With a good solid display in the previous game against KCCA FC, the side from Mukono will hope to bring up the same energy while playing against the Venoms in their quest of more points.

URA will look to names like Derrick Nsibambi, Saidi Kyeyune, Living kabon among others to raise the bar for a great performance.

On the otherside, they face a Vipers side that started the season in sombre mood but with huge signs of improvement in the previous games.

The Venoms will hope to ride on their recent form after winning their last two games on the bounce at home (against UPDF FC and Arua Hill).

The form of the consistent Yunus Sentamu will be key in this fixture after scoring five goals in seven games so far this season.

With URA well-known for upsetting the top teams in the league Vipers will keep their eyes open with hope of displaying good football with goals.
