URA targets a double

URA targets a double

Sitting pretty atop the Ecobank Super League, URA have a welcome distraction when they visit Bunnamwaya at St. Mary’s School Kitende in the quarter finals of the Bell Uganda Cup today.

Many within the increasingly seeming champions-elect do not want to talk about the double just yet even though striker Hamis ’Diego’ Kiiza gave a hint about the pressure to sweep all major honours.

Following a lethargic performance in the 1-0 loss to Utoda a fortnight ago, Kiiza made a quick note about their ambitions.

"There is a lot of pressure to win all the competitions," Kiiza said.

His hunger has not only translated into him scoring more often than any other player but perhaps made Steven Bengo more potent than ever before as URA go for a third Cup title.

The playmaker scored in the 3-1 victory over SC Villa in the last round and has been in fine ever form since.

"We all know his (Steven) qualities. All he needs is staying fit and coming in with the right attitude," said Alex Isabirye, the URA coach.

Lying third behind KCC, Bunnamwaya are tipped by many to give URA a run for the league title and eliminated the latter at the same stage last season in a post-match penalty shoot-out.

This game is important for coach Edward Golola to send a loud signal of intent having been unconvincing in dumping Katwe United via penalties in the round of 16.

Tony Odur, who got the lone goal in the league against Masaka on Tuesday, should be the fulcrum especially that Caesar Okhuti has been firing blanks recently.

Proline back

Elsewhere, Proline complete a rollercoaster week with a journey to Kakindu Stadium to face champions Victors. The former were re-instated in the tournament after being dubiously thrown out for using ineligible players against Baza Holdings.

In Mukono, Misindye, one of the two surviving lower division sides, host plucky Simba. The latter are the losing finalists from last year.

Tomorrow at Bugembe stadium, home boys Jinja Arsenal entertain Express.
