URA FC locks horns with new league entrants and 2nd bottom placed Malaba Youth Development Association (MYDA) in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Wednesday at King George IV Memorial stadium at 4PM.(EAT)

The visiting tax collectors will be desperate to get back to winning ways following their disappointing home loss (0-1) to Express FC on Sunday at the Arena of Visions in Ndejje.

Head coach Sam Ssimbwa will be hoping that his players can be sharper and more clinical in front of the goal by converting the created chances into goals.

In recent games, the team has created a number of goal-scoring opportunities but they all go to waste something which on a number of occasions has cost the team points.

This is the first meeting with the hosts since they are making their debut season in the topflight.

Ssimbwa’s side has seen an excellent performance in its away games this campaign playing three, won two, and drawn one. Must they carry on with this magnificent run, they will return with the three points in the bag from Malaba.
