Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) football club begin life without head coach Kefa Kisala who was sacked on Monday.

Under interim manager, James Odoch who has been assistant to Kisala, his first task at hand is an away trip to Wankulukuku on Tuesday to face yet another struggling side in Lweza FC.

Lweza find themselves in the relegation context after failing to win any game since the start of the second round and would want to use the game against URA to return to winning ways.

Despite reports indicating Lweza head coach Ibrahim Kirya could be on his way to URA, a team he faces today, Kirya has down played the claims and says he is focused to help Lweza survive relegation.

“I’m not aware of any relation with them (URA). At the moment, I’m focused on making sure we get points and fend off relegation,” Kirya said.

Lweza have failed to win any game in the second round losing twice (2-0 vs Vipers and 2-1 vs Bright star) and drawn twice (2-2 vs SC Villa and 1-1 vs JMC Hippos).

In the numerous experienced players at the club, Kirya believes they have what it takes to hurt the tax collectors.


“Every game we play now is like a final and we give in our very best. The experience we have in the team will be very important as we take on URA,” he said.

Asuman Buyinza, Manko Kaweesa, Owen Kasule, Ronald Muganga and Jeremiah Ssebuyira are some of the veteran players at Lweza.

On the other hand, URA have failed to hit the ground going despite massive recruitment at the start of the season.

The team has failed to kill off games in most cases thus leading to the numerous stalemates(11 draws).

Lweza sit 12th on the table with 20 points while URA occupy 7th position on 24 points.
