SUPL: Timbe rallies charges to build on Mbarara victory

URA head coach, Sam Timbe has called upon his charges to build from the vital win against Mbarara City to regain their lost form.

The ‘Tax Collectors’ managed to walk away with a 2-0 well-merited win against Mbarara City in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League at the Arena of Visions, Ndejje on Wednesday.

“It was not an easy game but if we managed to pick a victory then it’s a good direction and we have to keep consistent,” Timbe expressed.

“For the past games, we have not been having very bad games but the scoring has been the problem and we surely needed this win to regain our confidence.”

URA took the lead through captain Shafic Kagimu whose effort hit the pole before he rebounded the ball to the back of the net.

Three minutes later, electric winger Joachim Ojera danced through several bodies to find Cromwell Rwothomio whose effort missed the target by a whisker.

In the 76th minute, Kabon Living was fouled in the area which awarded the hosts a penalty, second-half substitute Ibrahim Dada converted from twelve yards to extend their lead.

The experienced gaffer highlighted points of improvement in the team and among those was the team’s shape whenever it was in attack.

“We have greatly improved in the way we shape up towards the opponent’s goal however we were slow in certain moments where crosses were laid in the area but no one was there to make contact.”

“We later got better in the second half. I believe we would even get more goals in the game. We shall go back in training and iron out a few mistakes,” he concluded.

URA had gone four consecutive games without a win, they have played to four stalemates against Police
FC, SC Villa, Express, and Onduparaka respectively.

URA FC lies in the eighth position on the log with 17 points from 10 games since they have two games in hand.

They will be hosting Wakiso Giants in their following game in the league on Tuesday, December 28.
