Coach Sam Ssimbwa will expect his side to replicate the good performance they have had in their previous games when they take on relegation-threatened side Kyetume away at the Mighty Arena in Jinja on Saturday.

URA picked themselves up in the second round and have won four of the five games played so far in the second stanza.

Two of the victories were against giants KCCA (2-1) and SC Villa (2-0). They also easily negotiated past Bright Stars and BUL, before sharing the spoils with Tooro United.

"We want to win as many games as possible then at the end we shall see where God will place us," said Ssimbwa.

"Meeting Kyetume is not going to be easy for us since they are fighting relegation. They are a difficult side."

Kyetume will hope to stun the tax collectors.

Ssimbwa was crowned January's best coach together with his striker Cromwell Rwothomio, who walked away with the best player accolade.

URA are currently 4th on 33 points, one point behind third-placed SC Villa.

Back to the duel, Kyetume will be inspired by the last famous victory over fellow relegation candidates Proline at Lugogo where they won 1-0.

On the table, Kyetume are languishing in 13th place on 22 points.

In the last five games, they have registered three defeats - against Vipers, KCCA and Police. Their two wins were against Tooro United and Proline.

Kyetume also recently made a change in their technical team, with Alex Isabirye Musongola making his second stint as head coach, replacing Jackson Mayanja.

Meanwhile, Villa will host bottom-placed Proline at Namboole.

The Jogoos will look to strengthening their third-place spot. But they have URA hot on their heels.

Villa will be up against a Proline side who have picked up just 15 points from 20 matches and are desperate for points to keep their relegation survival quest going.
