Sseruyidde strike guides URA past Busoga United

27th / February 2021
URA FC 1-0 Busoga United
Arena of Visions Ndejje, Bombo

URA FC midfielder Moses Sseruyidde scored the only goal as the Tax Collectors beat Busoga United to climb into the third on the Uganda Premier League table.

The midfielder struck in the 50th minute to earn victory for the Tax Collectors.

In the second minute, Cromwel Rwothomio’s header rattled the bar after a perfect cross from Majwega Brian as URA looked to grab an early lead.

Five minutes later, the visitors could have got their opener but Kiirya Jeromy’s header went just inches wide after a beautiful cross from Paul Ssekulima.

In the 33rd minutes, Sseruyidde Moses beat two defenders down the left flank before shaping onto his left-foot but his effort towards goal went just wide.

However, he could not be dented twice as he scored just after the break.

A few minutes later, Ojera Joackiam could have doubled the host’s lead after Shafiq Kagimu set him up but Busoga United keeper Rodgers Odemwegu was equal to the task.

In the end, URA held onto all three points to climb into third place on the log with 21 points after ten games played.

Struggling Busoga United still lie third from bottom and remain this campaign.
