Defeat to Vipers to steer URA into quick turnaround – Timbe

URA FC have had an indifferent campaign so far and have managed just two wins in ten matches, with defeat in their last match, 1-0 against Vipers SC.

They will however look to bounce back from the loss to the defending champions and try to master a much needed victory, in their next game against Maroons FC on Tuesday.


Head Coach Sam Timbe has rallied his side to be more clinical in front of goal if they’re to get positive results in Luzira.

“We have tried to correct all the mistakes we made against Vipers and the boys complying, so we can pick maximum points tomorrow,” he said to the media on Monday.

“Finishing (the chances) is what has been our biggest problem but we have to continue making those chances and work on finishing them.”

Tomorrow’s game will be the third in less than a week, but, the congestion of matches isn’t something that bothers the tactician.

“Well, that’s usual and it’s like a tournament now and it happens everytime we’re winding up a round.”

“That’s how the officials have made it and so, after tomorrow’s game, we have another on Friday and another on Wednesday,” added the experienced gaffer.

The last five encounters between the two have been close with no side edging the other. Each side has won just once while three matches have been closely contested draws.
